I spent the last three weeks doing a partial rebuild on my truck, most of that time was spent waiting for the parts to arrive that I ordered online. The truck is back together now and running, time will tell if it will last or not, I hope so since I plan to drive it 350 miles to Maine for Easter. Sorry about the jerky video, I still haven't figured out a good way to capture off my camera, my capture card doesn't give me the quality I would like and my camera isn't compatible with Vista, I did this one on a different computer that was running XP and its clearer but I think the computer was too slow...I think I need a newer camera

1998 Dodge Ram 46RE Teardown and Rebuild Part 1
Here's a clip of the teardown to bare bones due to a failed torque
converter. This is the beginning of a complete teardown and rebuild
unfortunatly. Almost all of the parts are flawless. There's no wear,
scarring, pitting or other damage to either the hard parts(gears, shafts,
drums, planetary gears, ect.) or soft parts(Friction plates, bands, seals,
ect.). For fun and added insurance I'll install a complete seal kit. The
things I need to replace are, the torque converter, a scared reverse clutch
drum, pump gears, a few bearings . I have to also replace the overdrive
piston retainer, but other than that, everything else is in exellent shape.
2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Top 5 Likes & Dislikes (Episode 6)
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) The 2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor is a capable and
even useful pickup truck that can serve as an everyday drive. But it is far
from perfect. In fact there are a number of areas that need improvement.
In Episode 6 of of this long-term test of the 2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor,
Roman takes a look at the Top 5 things he likes about the new Raptor and of
course the Top 5 things that he dislikes.
The Ford F-150 SVT Raptor is one of the baddest trucks in the land. It can
tow 8000 pounds, seat 5 comfortably, haul all of your stuff and still race
across the desert at over 100 MPH is perfect air-conditioned comfort.
That's why we at TFLtruck choose the 2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor as our
first long term test truck. Usually truck manufacturers supply us with
pickups to test for a week at a time. We wanted to test the best selling
truck in the land for durability and reliability which meant buying a Ford
F-150. But not just any Ford F-150, the most powerful and the most off-road
worthy version that Ford builds.

How To Check Piston Ring End Gap.MP4
Piston ring end gap is and important measurement to verify during engine
assembly. Do this to ensure that the ring ends won't butt during engine
operation and damage the cylinders. Also keeps cylinder pressures more
consistent from bore to bore which means better effiiciency and power.
Magnum V8 Intake Plenum Pan Gasket Replacement EXCLUSIVE!
PS: Sorry for the silent film. After all the work, I forgot to add music.
If your Dodge Ram, Dakota, Durango, or Jeep Grand Cherokee (ZJ) with the
Magnum 3.9L V6, 5.2L V8, or 5.9L V8 has been pinging during acceleration or
under engine load, and using/consuming oil then more than likely your
Intake Plenum Pan Gasket has blown out and is allowing the engine's vacuum
to pull oil from the valley (where the camshaft/pushrods are) into the
engine, burning it and causing ping/spark knock. The Plenum being one
piece, instead of a separate upper and lower intake manifold, requires
there to be an opening on the bottom of the Plenum during casting since
it's such a large piece of aluminum. The solution, is to cover it with a
pan as such. The pan is made of very thin aluminum and over time it warps
from heat, allowing the gasket to blow out. You can replace the gasket but
since the pan is warped, it will only blow out the gasket again and since
it's so much work, it's not fun to do it several times. Hughes Engines has
a replacement pan that is much much thicker and is the solution to the
warping. It will not warp and the gasket will not blow out again. This is
the kit that I used in the video/slide show. It was cold out when I did
this a few months ago so I didn't take any video, just pictures. Sorry the
video is silent. The kit for the 5.2/5.9 V8's can be found here:
and the kit for the 3.9 V6 can be found here:
http://www.hughesengines.com/Index/products.php?partid=22078. By the way,
I'm not endorsed or sponsered by Hughes engines, I just highly recommend
the kit if you're going to put in the work to replace the gasket. If you
have any other questions about the procedure or any other repairs or
questions about your Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep/ Mopar product, just send me a
message or leave me a comment.
This applies to all '93-03 Dodge Ram, Ram Vans, Dakota, Durango, Jeep Grand
Cherokee with the 3.9L V6 (239), 5.2L V8 (318), 5.9L V8 (360).
As always, disconnect the battery, and be safe and careful with yourself
and everything under the hood during this repair. Thanks for watching!
