Oh I'm sure, I had to do it with the top end on the block and the engine in the car, I was just saying that I had a hard enough time doing what I did and you guys are going much deeper than I'll probably get on any engine.

Hmm I didnt think about that lol

In the car, I can see as being a PITA especially that back set.

Actually, the focal point of that picture is the piston ring compressor. Not sure anyone know what kind of engine that is, unless someone can tell by sensor locations, block design/shape, etc.

But, that'* off-topic, too.

Instead of string. I was using air. Actually..that'* how my motor became a 5 cylinder monster of power.

Parts are on the way. I picked up the head bolts yesterday, gaskets to arrive soon.

Oooops, don't know who told you main caps come off easily on these motors, certainly it wasn't someone that took them off previously.

Sorry to hear of the bad luck with the piston. If I were you, and I was in a similar situation with my 1990 LeSabre, I would only change the piston and not the rings, provided they are in servicable conditions, which they should be.

Also, take the time to remove both knock sensors and clean the coolant jackets around them. It'* common to have a build up of crud just above the sensors, that cuts down on their sensativity.

Thanks for putting up all the pictures and blow by blow, fun to follow along.

Cheers,

Here'* a slightly torn torque axis mount




Since there was little to do and my EGR stand had a crack in the tube where it attached to the rear manifold (I'm happy..w/o pulling the motor I never would have found this possible KR cause!)

Why are you not using some studs instead of bolts
