How to: Assemble Pistons with Rods
In this quick video I show you how to put together your piston and rod
assembly and get it ready for installation onto the crankshaft.
Here are the current specs for my KA build for those who are interested:
- .020" overbore
- Wiseco .020" over forged pistons
- Eagle H-beam rods
- Stock Crank
- No line boring or honing
- Clevite Main Bearings (In my other video, I showed you how to choose the
proper bearings for your KA. I'm going with the Clevite "standard" bearings
really for experimentation purposes, to see how they hold up.)

Engine rebuild part 1
This series is available on DVD Here is the link
We are rebuilding a GM 350 5.7 engine. Now in this particular case we
are also going to upgrade the engine to a 383 6.0 This is called
building a "stroker" motor. In other words we are increasing the "stroke"
of the engine which increased the torq & horsepower.
If you are able & wanting to rebuild an engine, this video should give you
a good overview of what to do. If you are having someone else build an
engine for you, you will be able to see what's involved in the process
1984 Dodge Daytona Turbo Z MaroonSlvr NSmyr052212
This car looks very familiar...very similar to the '85 Chrysler Laser turbo that I had! I think the top brass at
Chrysler were determined to turn the K-car into a sporty little
machine..and this was a good attempt. The interior was made of quality
materials...I had trouble with the linkage of the manual transmission.
