My build pictures. I have missed placed a lot of them so the pictures jump around. Trail Gear Three Link kit with Fox Air Shocks. 85 front axle with 5.29 gears, chromoly Dirty 30 axles, chromoly hub gears, Lock Rite locker, Axle gussets and truss. Dual transfer case with twin stick. Trail Gear 5'' Classic rear lift. Rear axle has disk brakes and Detroit locker. Maxxis Creepie Crawler 37x12.50x16. This is my daily driver. Just needs bumbers, rock sliders, and some body work.

Part 1 (of 10) Remove Engine & Tranny - Rebuild 1994 Toyota Camry Engine & Transmission 5SFE & A140E
Part 1 of 10
Complete engine and transmission overhaul of a 1994 Toyota Camry. This video shows removal of the engine and transmission from the car.
This car had 341,000+ Miles at the time of overhaul in October/November of 2011. I have owned the car for 17 years and it had 16K miles when I bought it. We took the car to Alaska from Arkansas in June 2011 (before the breakdown) = 10,000+ mile round trip.
This car suffered from a broken counter-driven shaft and gear in the transmission. These are probably two of the most difficult parts to get to on the entire car as the engine and transmission must be removed and then the shaft and gear are pretty much the last parts to be removed from the transmission during normal disassembly acording to the Toyota factory service manual.

How to replace your head and head gasket pt. 1
Here is how I changed the head and gasket on my 1992 Mazda B2600i pickup truck. This was the first time I have ever done a head gasket repair, and I have to say that most everything went according to plan. It was actually a lot easier than I anticipated. Total work time was about 14 hours, plus 2 weeks waiting for parts to arrive, that was the hardest part, haha. I am not especially mechanically trained or inclined, just interested in mechanics and the way they work, and that has helped me tremendously through procedures like this. I have found that since I want to learn about the way these parts connect, disconnect, and cooperate together, I have been able to do things to my cars and trucks that I never thought I could.
Taking care of your own vehicles is definitely a rewarding activity, for many reasons. Obviously you save a lot of money, you can rely on yourself to get your truck running in a jam, and are rarely stranded on the side of the road for long. Also, with more people doing their own work on their cars, mechanic services will be devalued, thus making it more affordable for everyone ($100 per labor hour, can you believe that?!?) Also, there is definitely a sense of satisfaction which comes from a job well done, being an interested and capable and competent individual, and helping out your friends with their problems. I like to learn, I like to be handy and useful to others, I like to save money, and I like to get dirty, so whenever I can I wrench on my own trucks and motorcycles.
A special thanks to the fine folks at the Mazdatruckin.com forum for all the technical articles. Hopefully you all can use this series of videos to help guide you through a similar procedure, really it is not that hard, and totally worth it.
head gasket $44
reman head $251
jug oil $12
jug coolant $14
manifold gasket set $14
That is about $1000 less than a mechanic would charge. Be brave, and do it yourself!
First start of a 1985 22re after a full rebuild.
Dad got this new back in 1985. It has been a great little truck going through a lot of states over the years. With well over 200,000 miles on it, it was time for a rebuild. This is a video of the first start after getting the engine back in. I used a master kit from EPN engnbldr (Ted) along with the 268 cam, and RV head. The timing chain has the driver side steel rail. It is a 86 22r block bored .040 over.
Did the 12 30 to 50 MPH full throttle pulls, came back let it cool and retorqued the head. Did a 1800-2500 RPM run for 15 mins. then readjusted the valves to .008 in .012 exh. Am at 90 miles and going to change the oil tomorrow.
The whining is the alt. because I cleaned the hell out of it and took the oil off those 25 year old bearings. LOL Time for a Chevy alt. upgrade anyway:)
Here is a link to the place I got my parts.
