How to diagnose Toyota Timing Chain Rattle or Knock troubleshoot 22R 22RE 22RET
Every Toyota 22R series engine with the single row timing chain and plastic
timing guides (1983~ish - 1995) that I have ever purchased with over
100,000 miles on the engine has had a driver's side guide that was either
partially broken or just totally gone. To the untrained ear it sounds a
like the valves need adjusting, but in this video I'll show you how to
inspect, troubleshoot, and diagnose a broken driver's side timing guide.
It makes a great bargaining chip when you can show the seller that the
timing guide is broken and then inform them that it's an $800+ repair at a
shop. If you can fix it on your own it will only run you about $100 in
parts and a Saturday's worth of time.
22RE Engine Rebuild: Part 3 (test drive, 0-60)

few acceleration / driving clips. I apologize for the darkness and loud
tires; I may take another video in the daytime when i find time during the
How to Remove Stubborn Toyota 20R - 22R - 22RE Crankshaft Pulley Bolt 1979 - 1995
A long (but detailed) video on the tips and tricks I've learned over the
years on how to remove stubborn crankshaft pulley bolts on Toyota 22R
series engines. (22R 22RE 22RET)
By far, the best way would be to have the SST (shop specific tool) that
Toyota recommends, but not many folks (me included) has one of those in
their garage. This is a video of some of the tips and tricks that I've
learned over the years on getting this sometimes EXTREMELY stubborn bolt to
The most common reason that you need to be able to get this bolt out is so
that you can access the front main seal on the front end of the crankshaft.
Most older Toyotas develope an oil leak through the seal. Oil works past
the worn-out seal and then gets flung around the front of the engine and
engine bay by the crankshaft pulleys. It's really a pretty easy fix for a
very messy problem...if you can get the crankshaft pulley bolt off in order
to access the seal.

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
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

Engine rebuild part 1
This series is available on DVD Here is the link
We are rebuilding a GM 350 5.7 engine. Now in this particular case we
are also going to upgrade the engine to a 383 6.0 This is called
building a "stroker" motor. In other words we are increasing the "stroke"
of the engine which increased the torq & horsepower.
If you are able & wanting to rebuild an engine, this video should give you
a good overview of what to do. If you are having someone else build an
engine for you, you will be able to see what's involved in the process
