whats wrong with these bottom ends
1992 se with 145,000 miles on it since i've got the car back in setpetmber i guess .i've had to put 2 rod bearigns in it on the #1 rod sicne i've had it. i've had low oil pressure since i got the car it goes right above the red after a long run. and i've seriosly been thinking bout getting rid of it. on a bottom end reuild the crank kits for it are around $200. i think getting my crank turned and buying new bearings for rods and mains will be cheaper than $200. i dont want to spend all this money and then start it up and it starts the knocking again. whats up with this bottom ends on this motors. they saying alot of trouble on the #1 mains and the #1 rod bearings . yall think turning the crank .010 or .020 on the rods and mains and get good bearings would shut this motor up. another thing is on the torque specs on the rod bearigns i've called everywhere in town they said 20 lbs then 45 degrees 45 degrees is half of 90 and 90 is a right angle so torqie the rod caps on 20 then went between a 90 degree angle and went donw till it was straight making it 45 degrees. the only thing i woudl do to this motor is putting a bottom end in it , oil pump, timing chain and water pump. cuase other than the knock the motor is good just got some miles on it. i dunno i want to get out good as i can with money. and spending around $1000 for a rebuild and fixing the car woudl be better than a $6000 car. what do yall think bout all this? i wouldnt be able to do this till summer comes in may
what i need to know is bout the rod torque specs and woudl turning the crank and getting rod bearings and main bearigns fix all the knocking crap.
i know it would be better to just rebuild the whole motor but i want to get out cheap as i can . this is my daily driver i have to have this car running with out problems. and just putting a bottom end in it would cure it for hopefully another year or 2 untill i get money to get a brand new car the thing is i want to make sure redo the bottom end on this motor will fix all my problems and it wopnt start back in another 3 months after the rebuild whats yall think ?
