2000 Dodge Neon Head and Timing Belt - Part 2
This video includes the clips from part one butinlcudes the SOUND and a
SLIDE SHOW from the project.
Inspection - This is our brother Gregg's Car neon. The water pump seized
and blew the timing belt. We decided to take it all the way down to the
head because there was some question that a valve had bent as well. But
other than a TON of carbon, it turned out to be OK. more at
How to Reseat / Lap Valves (Basic Valve Job)
In this video i'm explaining how to reseat or lap valves in a flathead or
overhead valve engine. Also can be called a valve job, but this is not a
complete valve job. I also used to much valve grinding compound, it does
not require a whole lot. Usually when a engine needs this done is when a
engine has low compression that is found to be leaking around the valves,
or sometimes a engine will backfire do to the valves not closing
completely/properly. Thanks for watching.
CRANKWALKED? 7-bolt teardown 1080HD
Now this is a story all about how
My bearings got flipped-turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute just sit right there
And tell you how I used to mix and burn my gas and my air.
In RVA suburbs born and raised
On the dragstrip is where I spent most of my days
Chillin out, maxin, relaxing all cool,
'n all shooting some BS outside with my tools
When a couple of guys who were up to no good
Started running races in my neighborhood
I heard one little knock and my rods got scared
And said "You put it in the garage until you figure out where..."
I Begged and pleaded that it not be that way,
But it didn't want to start and run another day.
I kissed it goodbye, because the motor punched its ticket
I got out my camera, said "I might as well kick it."
Crankwalk yo this is bad
Drinking metal shavings from an oil pan.
Is this what the rumor of crankwalk is like?
Hmm this won't be alright
But wait I heard knocking, grinding and all that
Is this the type of failure that should happen to this cool cat?
I don't think so, I'll see when I get there
I hope they're prepared for this video I share.
Well I pulled all the bolts and when I came out
There were chunks in my fluids in the pan and they drained out
I aint all depressed cause I seen this before.
I got my books and my wrench and we'll do it once more.
I sprang into action like lightning disassembled
I whistled while I worked and my hands never trembled
If anything you could say that this bling is rare,
and when I saw what broke I stained my underwear.
I turned off the air compressor 'bout 7 or 8
And I yelled to crankcase "Yo holmes, smell ya later"
I looked at my internals they were finally there
To sit on my workbench and stink up the air.

Here's the 48,000 mile-old 7-bolt I blew up summer 2011 after over 150 drag
passes, a half dozen Dyno sessions, 4 transmissions,
3 clutches and 10 years of hard all-weather use.
Valve job trick on a Citroen SM / Maserati 3 Liter engine...
A little trick that I learn on the internet some time ago. The lapping tool
keeps slipping when the valve has carbon on it or the lapping compound oil
get to vacuum cup. It is annoying, isnt it?
I hope this helps :o)

Testing for Leaking/Bent Valves
--Please Read-- :)
Some of the best advice I can offer you about fixing your car is to search
for an online forum related to your car, or even for your specific engine.
If you have a popular car or engine, this can be an amazing tool in
diagnosing and fixing cars yourself!
1. Get kerosene, gasoline, or break cleaner.
2. Tilt head on its side, with the ports of the valves you're testing
pointing up and exposed.
3. Fill the intake or Exhaust ports
with the liquid you chose, make sure to use enough liquid to cover the back
of the valve head completely inside the port.
4. Look at the valve surface in the combustion chamber for leakage. (Let it
sit for several minutes)
5. If there is a leak, you could have a bent valve or just a bad seal of
the valve to the head. You might have to replace the valve, or just use
some lapping compound to lap the valve/seat to resurface.
6. Repeat for the other side if you wish.
7. This is a great time to replace valve seals if you have noticed they are
worn too much.
8. If you have any questions, please post them here and I'll try to answer
You just tilt the head on one side or the other depending whether you want
to test the intake or Exhaust valves.
I'm testing the intake valves in this video. I did this way because I
didn't have the leakdown test equipment, but also because I wanted to
replace my head gasket anyway. I wouldn't say this is the best way to test
initially if you suspect leaking or bent valves because it requires you
remove the head. Try just a regular leakdown test first. But if you're
taking it off anyway it's pretty nifty and doesn't require the leakdown
test tools. There are several methods to do this, this is just the one I
chose in my situation.
Cylinder Head 103 - Deck Tech
How to clean, inspect, and determine what you can do with your cylinder
head. Also how WHAT you do affects your oil system. There are many
variables at play when you make changes to your cylinder head deck from
your oil system, compression ratio, your valve timing and potentially even
disaster. 'best not to go that far with it. Watch this video and avoid it
if you're building your own 4g63 head.
The differences between this head and a 1g head are mostly related to port
sizes on the intake and Exhaust, and
different sized head bolt holes. The 7-bolt uses an 11mm bolt, and a
6-bolt uses 12mm. 1g heads have gigantic intake ports, but aside from
that, valve geometry, oil system functionality and the service limits are
all the same.

modifications for all generations of Mitsubishis, and specifically for 2g
head installations on a 1g block.
