    Pics were discussed but to fully document it, we would have spent an extra day...so we decided against it...

    I have a cell phone pic from last time the motor was out if that would help...looked the same...grill radiator support etc. removed to pull the engine out the front...

    Default I know what you mean

    Yea, we had the same feeling when Paul decided on what he was going to do. But now that it is done, its alot less dreaded. It won't be long before I put it on the engine stand for us to find the problem of over fueling. More experience with a DMax. So far its been fun and edujumcational.

    pics from the tear down on 5-29-10
    Well just when I thought I could budget this rebuild fairly easily with a couple more upgrades...Steve and I pulled the heads yesterday to start breaking down the block further and to start bring things to the machine shop...

    more bad news...(taken from cell phone)
    Photo0079.jpgPhoto0078.jpg

    to recap...

    the above damage occured on the way home from Suncoast's Dyno over a year before Steve and I finally tore down that engine...

    I had one bad injector and one borderline bad when I made that trip to dyno the truck...along with the coolant system being pressurized...either a head gasket or injector cup was suspected...

    belief at the time was that it bent or sheared the cam pin and injector timing was way off causing the truck to dump raw fuel out of the exhaust...

    upon tear down we found that the tip of a glow plug broke/burned off (probably a stuck injector?) and bounced in between the valve and seat and created a hot(or weak)spot in the valve upon which the valve was burned through that point...not 100% sure but this seems to be the closest to an explanation as we could come up with...

    other issues found were apparent HG leak as well as an injector cup that pulled out with two fingers after removing the hold down...it obviously was not sealed properly to begin with as the coolant system pressurization reared it's ugly head only months after having the head gaskets R&R at a prominent shop and ARP head studs installed at the same time...

    Here is a shot of the pistons waiting to be sent off to Swain Tech for the tops to be Ceramic coated and the skirts will be moly coated

    I am very proud of these and they are the first pictures I will post of my new toys/parts as my good friend Steve(Dura-Ration) cut them for me...he delipped them and took a two thousandths finish cut across the top and then put a .0125 radius on the edge of the bowls where they meet the tops...

    Photo0179.jpg



    Photo0180.jpg

    here is what one looks like with the lip still intact...of course this one is cracked...hence the need for de lipping them...

    OK, maybe I'm just dense, but why do they need to be de-lipped?

    If you look at the stock piston you will notice that it has a lip that hangs over the dish in the piston. This is good fro emissions, but in a performance app you are actually holding in tremendous pressure inside of teh piston that could be expanding downward and pushing teh piston down instead of being trapped inside of teh bowl in teh piston. The goal is to remove the lip so that the pressure will no longer push out against teh piston but instead go up and push teh piston down better utilizing the combustion process.

    Nice pictures Paul, we also need to get the crank and cam keyed. When do you want to do that?
    The front and rear seal installation tools are finished, so if you want to send them back to Creatures, we can do that too.
