Basic Engine Building DVD - Chapter 25: Cylinder Block
By this time your block is disassembled and in the machine shop. One of the
most informative sections, here we take you behind the scenes to show what
goes on while your away. We show the process of align honing the main
bearing bore that is needed before anything else can be machined. Then the
block deck is leveled and machined as needed for the new head gaskets to
seat properly. And finally the cylinder walls are bored out just shy of
their new size, which will be achieved when they're honed.

SR20DET NVCS gone bad
These are the sounds a badly worn NVCS sprocked is making in a fully build
Nissan SR20DET Black Top engine. NVCS sprocket had aprox 170.000km on it
when it started to go from fairly unnoticable to plain bad during a course
of about 1500km. It is happening because the rubber seals inside it starts
to fail. You could buy a new sprocket which could last next 150.000km, or
15.000km (and the sound is back). There are some reports of people
succesfully replacing the rubber seals for cheap fix tho. Even with the
sounds the performance of the engine remained the same.
NVCS stands for Nissan Variable Cam System.
I hope this video will help people with similar problems identify the weird
sounds our engines are making from time to time. Other similar sounds may
be produced by bad lifters, main bearings, timing chain and the solenoid
activating the NVCS. You will find a lot more information about these
issues in various forums around the internet.
Sorry about the poor mobile phone video quality.
