4G63 back from the ashes---First half of engine rebuild

After over a YEAR of promises that I'd get this vid done, I went halfway and got the engine pull and most of the shortblock work edited and documented. Here for your viewing deliciousness is PART 1! (link to torque specs for the engine here: http://bit.ly/17KDEED)

4g64 4g63 Timing Belt Install
Install of timing belt on 4g63 64. Made this video to help those that are looking to do the same. I do not take responsibility for any damage your car may incur if you follow these steps. This is the way I did it and may not be the way others would do it but feel the information is still useful.





Cylinder Head 108 - 4g63 Rockers
Cleaning and inspection of 4g63 rocker arms. Part 8 of the head series, and probably the easiest one yet to either watch or perform. No precision measurements required, no disassembly or special tools required. If you've got an air compressor and a pick, and a little bit of patience, you can do this part of the job without expending any major effort. This is one of those things that during the course of your build, you can do unconsciously. You just need to soak them, poke them, and inspect them. In this video I show you how. Some parts of the wheel Mitsubishi didn't want to re-invent each time they developed a new motor. These rocker arms are prevalent in millions of Mitsubishi, Plymouth, Chrysler, Dodge, Eagle, Hyundai and even some Kia engines. A good rule of thumb is... everything with a 4g6x DOHC or 6g72 and 6g74 engine uses these rocker arms. From 4x4's to economy cars, these parts are everywhere. You just need to know what cars they're in and you can harvest a full set for a fraction of the cost of one of these things new. If you watch this video, you'll see how to pick a winner. Check this link for 6g7x donor cars. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitsubishi_6G7_engine I didn't really want to see any of my rockers damaged, but really I'm lucky some were because it gave me an opportunity to show you some bad ones. Mine suffered from oil starvation caused by rod bearing failures. That loss of oil pressure in addition to oil passages being blocked quickly took a toll. Just 5000 miles earlier I changed to 3g lifters and they were all fine, so this happened quickly. HKS 264/272 cams didn't help anything once the oil supply was compromised, but this was discovered before a more expensive failure in the valvetrain could develop. Remember that sharing is caring.
