Basic Engine Building DVD - Chapter 27: Connecting Rods
By now the connecting rods are ready for pistons. We recommend having the
machine shop clean your old pistons for you, if you plan to reuse them.
It's not fun at all by hand. Here we show you how they install the rod pins
into the connecting rods to connect with the pistons. Then they will
measure the pistons to determine the final bore size of the cylinder walls
before they are honed.
BoxWrench.net is a community and resource designed for automotive
enthusiasts. The Basic Engine Building DVD is over three hours of engine
building that covers everything from removal and disassembly to final
assembly and engine start-up. This is the ultimate DVD for any home
mechanic or engine enthusiast that wants to see a complete rebuild from
Teardown to Start-Up. This video can be used to learn how to work on almost
any type of internal combustion engine including V8, V6, Straight 8,

CHECKING YOUR TPS!
Short video on how to MECHANICALLY check your TPS on your Toyota 22RE to
see if it's FUNCTIONING correctly. Check our website to set it properly.

22RE Toyota Pickup/4Runner Valve Adjustment
A recent major oil leak from my valve cover gasket leak meant I had to
remove the valve cover and reseal it. This was the perfect time to film how
to adjust 22RE valve clearances. Grab a snack and a frosty beverage and see
how it's done.
Inline Four - Precision Engine Balancing
Precision Engine Balancing is something often overlooked, especially by
"backyard" or "inexperienced" engine builders. This video showcases not
only engine balancing of a Honda 4 cyl. rotating assembly, but at the
precise specification that Inline Four holds its engine building standards
to. After watching this video, you will not look at engine building the
same and will want the best for your engine. "Do it right, or don't do it
at all!" =Brandon...out!
Land Rover engine rebuild stuff you must know - CON ROD
There are more things to check with a feeler gauge than just valve
clearances on you Land Rover four cylinder engine. In this video we share
with you how to measure of couple of things on the 300tdi Land Rover engine
when undertaking repairs or overhauling an engine. Checks you should carry
out when removing the con rod from the crank.
We look at crankshaft end float and the need to check for distortion in
the con rod big end.
