How To Swap Piston on Connecting Rod at Home - 4.8 Flat Tops into a 5.3
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. By installing flat top 4.8 pistons into a 5.3 the compression will change from 9.5:1 to 10:1. Later I will mill the heads .030" to achieve about 10.5:1 compression. Enjoy the show!

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.
