Reconditioning and installing connecting rods into pistons - The Build
Watch The Build! In this episode we're reconditioning the connecting rods and installing them into the pistons.





A Better Way to Install Rods on Pistons
http://www.horsepowermonster.com -- Installing spiral locks into a performance piston is a pain. I've found a tool that can make your life a lot easier when it comes to building performance engines.

How to Fit V8 Hi Performance Camshaft bearings,tips,tricks and trade sercrets revealed
Aussie Heads and Race Engines show you how to fit hi performance race cam bearings,improving cam timing,cam chain tension,oil pressure,stopping premature camshaft wear(known problem no. 6 and no. 7 cam lobes)by modifying oil gallery feeds. A very indepth and interesting video making it sound and look simple,feel free to comment and like vid,even ask some questions on anything standard or hardcore on performance modifications.





Blueprint 105 - Main Bearing Oil Clearances
In this episode we measure the bores for the crankshaft and calculate the oil clearances based off of information gathered in the previous video. If you subtract the diameter of the crankshaft from the bore diameter, you end up with your oil clearances. If this were an assembly with new parts, I would have also paid close attention to bearing measurements 45° off-centerline just to make sure the bearings aren't pinched. I would also have double-checked the clearances using Plastigage. But what I'm doing here is just getting baselines prior to machining. If you're doing a dry assembly like this, DO NOT ROTATE THE CRANKSHAFT. Without oil, there is nothing preventing it from being damaged.





COME Racing block clearancing & component balancing.
You need to make sure components fit the cylinder block correctly and that rotating and reciprocating parts are correctly balanced. This in another of our short block V8 building videos goes through these functions.





LSx Replace Pistons on Connecting Rod at Home DIY - 4.8 Flat Tops in a 5.3 - LS1
In this video I am pulling one piston out at at time from a 160k mile 5.3. This 5.3 will be going into my 1987 C10. I then show the removal of the dished 5.3 piston from the connecting rod and then the mount of used 4.8 flat top pistons back onto the connecting rod. Then the 4.8 piston and rod are inserted back into the block. This is all happening at home in my garage with basic tools. I do use a press to remove the 5.3 piston but you could easily use the propane torch for the removal by reversing the mounting procedure that I show with the torch. With this video, I am not suggesting that everyone reuse their old piston rings. I am only doing an experiment to see how they hold up. That way others can judge on their own if they need to replace their rings while working on what ever project they may have. I do suggest cleaning the rings better then I did in this video. I do suggest that you replace the rings if you're inside a motor with 160k miles on it. By installing flat top 4.8 pistons into a 5.3 the compression will change from 9.5:1 to 10.6:1. Edited 4-30-14: I just started this engine up last week. I did a compression test, it came back good. I've got a video of it running on the stand here: http://youtu.be/VogkaVNGkCU UPDATE 8-16-14: This motor is running strong.
