I am selling my v6 from my s10. It's a 2.8l v6 with new rings, spark plugs and wires. The guy I bought it from did the engine work, I'm selling it cause I want to put a diesel in it. Make an offer! Located in Moscow, ID. I also have other parts from an s10 if you want them.
3100 Engine Rebuild
Rebuilding a 3100 V6.... Repair cost was $1,200 using Re-man cam and crank.
Un-seizing a V6 engine #4
The V6 engine I have is seized up, so I show how I get it to spin over
Note some of my techniques are not recommended for a useful engine. One of
the most important factors is time, the longer you let diesel or
penetrating oil sit in the cylinders, the better, so long as you keep any
water out at the same time!

Compare this one to the old engine here:
Starting the 'other' 2.8 Chevrolet motor 1-23-10
Re-put-together with parts from the 2.8 I shot with my hakim, this engine
had a spun rod bearing which messed up the crank, and rod. I re-assembled
it with the crank from the other engine, and one rod, and fabricated an
adapter plate to mount a 2bbl carb in place of the fuel injection system.
A few issues, but it does start and run. Don't know what I will do with
this engine....in the spring maybe rev it until it blows, or shoot at it.
Spinning over a V6 GM engine
The piston sequencing is shown for a 3.4 liter GM V6 engine.
Note, it turns out that I numbered the cylinders wrong, what I call #1 is
actually #2, and what I labelled as #2 is actually #1.
So the Actual firing order as a regular V6 engine, is 1,2,3,4,5,6, I
know, weird, but that is they way they made them. I am more used to V8
engines, so that is why I numbered the cylinders the way I did.
Either way though, it shows that the crankshaft will not work as it is for
the Junkyard Deltic project. Time to cut and weld the crank!!!!!!!!
RUN AWAY Detroit Diesel! 453-T
DD 453-T runs away! rack gets stuck on valve cover. almost lost some
fingers too, it was all i could find. F'ed up new turbo compressor wheel, was only damage
Chevrolet S10 running better, hopefully
After changing the coolant temp sensor and oil pressure sensor I started
the truck and it ran rough like usual with intermittent "service engine"
flashing and rpm changes. After getting warm it seemed to even out and the
service engine light went out and stayed out for about 5 minutes while i
did a short test drive then stopped and idled while making this video. The
SE light did flash on just before shutting down. I changed both sensors
because the oil pressure gauge was bouncing around before and the temp
gauge didn't seem to move. After changing the sensors the oil pressure
reading is a lot more stable however the temp gauge still doesn't move.
Beat to hell 1985 Chevy S10, 2.8 V6
Cold start and then driving the 1985 Chevy S10 we have at work. 2.8 liter
carbureted V6. This vehicle is still used daily to make deliveries (I work
at an auto parts store). I didn't even show you the worst part, the front
tires are so bad that the belts are coming through.
