I just saw it.All in all, its quite good, and what was most interesting for me, was to see how someone else does this build, as i had no one to compare to with what i did.
Seeing how the Crank spins by hand, and comparing to what i did, and things like that.
There are a few bits wich are missing, and i think would be important to be in a disc like this.
For example:1) How to use a strech meter for the rod bolts - how to do it - as this cant be done if the cradle is installed before this procedure.2) How to install the Rings on the piston - How to correctly put them on, without deforming or breaking them.3) how to install the head components (Valves , Springs, etc...) , and how to use the apropiate tools -with the Head on, and Head off for the spings, and valve seals.4) You completley over looked the Water pump (Although streight foward to install, but still...)5) Installing of the 2 PEGS on the block surface, that sit the head properly in place,or checking they are there, Is a pretty importand detail to leave out.6) A few words on matching a correct bore HG to the Bore used, would be nice.7) ReChecking things with PasticGauge , how to do it.
Allso a few things that kind of bothered me:1)The way you apply the Silicone(RTV) in the movie.... It should be a "BED" of liquid, and not smeared. On the Crack back cover, for example.2) I am not sure if its a common practice for you not to do so, but i found than you really should applay RTV, on the front of the HG - where it seats over the front cover. Othervise, and especialy if the block was not decked with the Front cover on - it will leak oil.3)Mentioning the fact that the Block needs to be decked with the Front Cover on (Unless you did and i missed it).4) The install of the Valve cover - bolts, RTV, etc - Just to be complete.5)You forgot to mention the Gasket, or O ring, at the Oil strainer.
Allso, I was wondering about nstalling the pistons DRY and not WET as in the VID.I installed mine dry, and everything sat perfectly - only about 3% Looses on a leakdown (cold engine).Is there a defenet preferance to using wet or dry install ?
Again, all in all i enjoid the VID.It gives out some great info, that would defenetly benefit the begginer builder, or whoever wants reasurance that things come out right.
One more thing. Where would i be able to get that TEFLON Based lubricant you use.When i finished my build, the crank spined by hand freely But if i stoped, it would lock up because of the oil, and would need some more force to start spining again. Allways by hand, but in the VID it looks like it spins much freer. I gues thats cause of the Teflon Lubricant.Dont the Tflone get into the oil and contaminate it ?
Thanks again, for a very Good and informative VID.Now i know to look for the new type Chain tensioner .
