OST-053: Massaging a 20V Blacktop
Posted: Thu Feb 14, 2019 4:14 pm
My client asked me to overhaul his Blacktop (for his AE86). It comes to me with a spun #2 rod bearing (atypical, in my exp usually it's #4). The rod is toast, and the crank would need to be turned. "Would", not "will". My client isn't a fan of a turned crank, so we have ordered a new one. And as far as rods go, I have a set of re-worked TRD (20mm pins now) rods, that I'm selling him.
here is the head during disassembly
some grunge, but I've seen worse
Here are the cleaned block, head, valves, and associated parts. Using the back of my car as a pick up......
more to come.....
