Cylinder Head 105 - Valve Job Basics
Valves not sealing? Valves not bent? This is how you fix that problem.
In this video I outline the basic valve job procedure. Cleaning the
valves, cleaning the seats, cleaning the combustion chamber and lapping the
valves in to make a better seal.
Here I cover the process start-to-finish. It's the same exact process for
pretty much all non-rotary combustion engines. It takes patience and
perseverance to do this job, but anyone can do it. Reference your service
manual for measurements and service limits. Everything else that's not in
your service manual is in this video.
I apologize for not having broken busted crap to work with in this video.
It's more beneficial to all of you when bad fortune falls on me because it
gets well documented, and many people watching these videos are looking for
answers. If you have bent valves, you will discover it quickly once you
chuck one up in the drill. You'll see the face of the valve wobble around
while it spins. You'll see evidence of this damage on the valve seat. If
it's bad, you may see damage on the valve guides in the form of cracks or
missing pieces where the valve guides protrude through the head ports.
Give all that stuff a good visual inspection. ...and if you doubt yourself,
never hesitate to get a second opinion or consult a machine shop. They
will have access to expensive tools that you wont find in your average

S10 2.2 knock before/after lucas
96 s10 with 156xxx miles. Boughtit for 400 bucks and the guy said it loses
oil pressure. Replaced the sending unit and changed the oil with gtx 10w-30
high milage which improved the oil pressure somewhat. I discovered the
knock in the motor after i bought it. The First clip is me just starting
the truck from a cold start. Great oil pressure and no knock. Second clip
is after the motor is warmed up you can start to hear the knock. Third clip
is me pouring lucas oil to see if the helps (dont worry i drained about a
quart of oil before i put the lucas in so the oil level was correct). Forth
clip is the truck running after i put the lucas oil in. Not to much of a
difference in the knocking but it helped my oil pressure alot. Fifth clip
is after i took her down the road and got on her a couple times. FYI when
the motor has a load on it (via. Me accelerating up to speed or down
shifting it does not knock) the truck also has tons of power and doesnt
skip a beat when driving down the road.

Detonation Knocking Pinging - What is it
Every wonder what that metallic rattling is coming from your engine or that
your car sounds like it is dragging a chain behind it. Well, that is called
detonation or knocking or pinging depending on when you were born and where
you are from. In this video we will go inside the cylinders and find out
what's really going on.
Datsun 510 with Honda S2000 engine
Collection of pictures showing how a stock Datsun 510 got his swap from a
03 s2000 donor ;it takes almost the same time chopping the frame for either
other swap, so I felt more confortable swapping a s2k engine & tranny on
I didn't know where to start, but somehow everything started to taking
place in a house garage with some basic tool that my grampa left me.
Overall this could be called as frankestein swap because of the info and
parts used. Ei: Subaru R160 LSD, Nissan Maxima rear calipers with KYB AGX
Mitsubishi Eclipse adj shocks , front brakes and suspention provided by
Datsun 280zx shocks with eibach springs and Nissan 240sx camber plates
with tokiko adj shocks,Datsun 210 brake Booster with 280zx master cilinder, 04 S2000
motor/ tranny with a custom crossmember 50%honda 50% datsun driveshaft.
S2000 Cluster on 510 frame, old recaro front seats with Mitsubishi EvoVIII
rear seat. mix and match for the datsun / honda wireharness and fuse box ,
AEM standalone system.
Griffin Ford Mustang
radiator, with AN radiator hoses.... the list goes for the wiring , same as
the brake system and plumbing. It took me around 7-8 months to finish it ,
working mostly at night and weekdays.
The main issue was to keep the most of the original geometry of the
Datsun...and basically remained the same, only for the tranny tunnel wich
it was extended. custom header and Exhaust, muffler provided by Greddy RSX type S
muffler gave a low tone on the open pipe Exhaust. the car ran around last months of 08'
..still need some work as the interior carpet and sound system but
heeeey... who cares when you can rev 9k rpm's....!
