Piston balancing - How to DIY
Liked the video? Help me make even better content by donating money without spending any money: https://www.gawkbox.com/profile/D4A Thank you for your support! A step-by-step video tutorial showing you how to balance your pistons yourself. Done on a set of cast Toyota 4age smallport pistons. The same procedure can be applied to many other pistons. A balanced engine runs smoother, produces less vibration, is capable of higher max rpms and copes better with higher power outputs and high rpms. Balancing is especially important for high revving naturally aspirated petrol engines such as the Toyota 4AGE. They may be a thing of the past, but nothing beats a well-built, smooth, high revving naturally aspirated petrol engine in terms of responsiveness and sheer driving pleasure. The crankshaft, flywheel, clutch pressure plate and crankshaft pulley are dynamically balanced - i.e. require special machinery. Pistons and connecting rods are statically balanced - i.e. it can be done at home with some simple tools. So why not give it a try and learn and save money in the process.

Connecting Rods Machine Shop Video-Engine Building DVD
Buy the "Basic Engine Building" DVD http://store.boxwrench.net/Basic-Engine-Building-DVD_p_8.html Basic Engine Building DVD - Chapter 27: Connecting Rods By now the connecting rods are ready for pistons. We recommend having the machine shop clean your old pistons for you, if you plan to reuse them. It's not fun at all by hand. Here we show you how they install the rod pins into the connecting rods to connect with the pistons. Then they will measure the pistons to determine the final bore size of the cylinder walls before they are honed. BoxWrench.net is a community and resource designed for automotive enthusiasts. The Basic Engine Building DVD is over three hours of engine building that covers everything from removal and disassembly to final assembly and engine start-up. This is the ultimate DVD for any home mechanic or engine enthusiast that wants to see a complete rebuild from Teardown to Start-Up.

1500 hp vs. 500 hp Connecting Rods
In this episode, a 1500 hp rated forged billet I-beam connecting rod is compared against a 500 hp rated stock cast connecting rod. The geometry, stronger material, and lower mass help to increase the load carrying capacity of the new connecting rod. The new rod will be used to build up the 1200 hp engine in subsequent videos so stay tuned!
