Land Rover engine rebuild stuff you must know - CON ROD
There are more things to check with a feeler gauge than just valve
clearances on you Land Rover four cylinder engine. In this video we share
with you how to measure of couple of things on the 300tdi Land Rover engine
when undertaking repairs or overhauling an engine. Checks you should carry
out when removing the con rod from the crank.
We look at crankshaft end float and the need to check for distortion in
the con rod big end.

Blueprint 103 - Connecting Rods
Connecting rods are the crux of the engine. They're responsible for
carrying the force of the explosions that occur in the combustion chamber
and using it to turn the crankshaft. Oil clearance specifications of the
"big end" and "small end" are crucial to maintaining consistent oil
In this video we take 3 measurements:
Rod Journal (also called Crank Pin) Diameters
"Big End" Bore diameter
Using the Journal diameters and the "Big End" Bores, you can calculate your
oil clearances of each bearing. The process is illustrated here. Anyone
rebuilding an engine who doesn't know its history should check all of these
clearances whether or not they're re-using the rods. If the crank,
bearings or connecting rods are going to be replaced, it's imperative that
you measure the new parts as well to ensure they're in spec.

How to Refit the 2nd Valve Spring after running in new camshaft in Performance V8 Motor
After the Camshaft has been run in on the super flow engine Dyno,I fill the cylinder full of
air at a constant pressure of 40 psi,this keeps the valves from falling in
the cylinder,then with a custom made lever bar depress springs and release
the collets,then I reinstall the inner valve spring,through the whole vid I
explain the whys and hows,a must see for people who want to install high
