2012-03-06 : Rebuilt GM (Chevrolet) 3100. New main bearings, rod bearings, camshaft bearings, piston rings, head gaskets, valve cover gaskets, EGR gaskets, intake gasket, plenum gasket, Exhaust manifold gaskets, valve stem seals, thermostat, oil pan gasket, oil pump, water pump, oil filter, engine oil, and paint.
I neglected to include piston rings in the audio, but the engine does have the new rings.
Replacing Chevrolet Lower Intake Manifold Gasket
New intake gaskets on a 1997 Malibu LS 3100 motor. This is a very common
issue with these cars. In this video I take you though the whole process
not in a professional shop but in a drive way so you can get a realistic
look at whether or not this fix is for you.
Make sure you get the steel replacement gaskets as that will solve any
future leaking issues.

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!
How to Break In A New or Rebuilt Engine - EricTheCarGuy

I'm sure there is more than one way to do this but this is the way that I
was taught and it seems to work as intended. The idea is to make sure the
engine is fully lubricated before you start it up for the first time as we
know all too well what happens to an engine without oil, in fact I forgot
to show me filling up the oil filter with oil before I installed it sorry.

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!!!!!!!!

Part 2 GM 3400 How to Replace a Bad Blown Head Gasket Reassembly Overheats No Vent Heat 3.4 Liter
Part 2 Reassembly on a head gasket change for a GM 3400. Basically the
same as a 3.1 Engine. Here are a few torque ratings that I used while I
was putting it back together.
Head bolts 65 foot pounds, torque to 40 in criss cross pattern, then 50,
55, 60 then finally 65
Rocker arm bolts 40 foot pounds then up to 50.
The rest were just hand tightened down good. Got questions? Stuck on one
certain area? Give me a shout out! I'll help answer your questions best I
can. : )
Replaced the head gaskets on this 3400 because they were bad. Engine would
overheat. If you watch at the end of the first video, the dismantling,
you'll see the bad areas of the head gasket
