As most of you know I blew the headgasket last run to clear creek. http://www.funinbc.com/forum/showthread.php?t=58700

So I'm rebuilding my 22RE from top to bottom.

Probably going to order a complete kit from EngnBldr $219US seem like a good deal for complete gasket set, bearings, new pistons, rings, oil pump, and timing chain with METAL chain guides (see my pics below...:mad:) http://www.engnbldr.com/ToyotaHotLicks.htm

Going to have my cam regroud to the same specs as CompCam's 252S for a lot more low end torque from idle to 3000rpm[36]

Also going to see how much of the fuckin emmissions shit I can remove. It's Califonia spec, so there's a lot of extra crap I don't need ontop of the normal mess.


Anyway, here's some pics. Can you guess which cylinder blew the head gasket? :eek:

Head looks okay. It's a little warped, but hopefully its not too bad that it can't be resurfaced.

Cam & rockers look pretty discoloured (from the heat and lack of lube I'm guessing) Cam is getting reground, so it should be fine. But what about the rockers? will they be okay, or should I replace them?

Big_Ern
01-17-2006, 03:17 AM
Got broken timing chain guides?

I'm lucky the HG blew, or else I would have left the engine alone and the chain would have eaten right through the timing chain cover and into the water pump[2]


fuckin plastic peices of shit...[28] Definitly gonna be happy to replace these with Engnbldr's steel guides.

If your going to regrind the cam , get the rockers done. you can resurface the rockers ... I've never done it , I have always replaced with new . rockers will be patterened , and make noise if you dont .
also replace the rocker/valve adjusters , they will be flattened on the the tips and make noise if you dont . also make sure they regrind the tips of the valves , where the adjusters make contact , it will be notched as well . Make sure you ask for that . and the dealer is the only place for the adjusters .


cant go wrong with EB's parts .... I have used 2 kits now .

Thanks for the tips guys.

Will the rockers just make noise, or will it damage anything or wear out quicker etc? Its not a daily driver, so I'll probably only put a few thousand K on it each year depending on road trips...

slacker
01-17-2006, 02:39 PM

no idea about the hardness, but I do know that regrinding cams is really common, so it can't be that bad...?

I'll let ya know if I need anything. So far everything has come apart nice, and I've labled & bagged everything so i don't loose anything...

Ya I think I'll just live with it... noise doesn't bother me, i just want it to be reliable

I might take the rocker assembly in when I get my cam reground and see what the pro's say though.

Looking good Aaron the only thing i would suggest is to go with the Factory Oil filter especialy if it's not a daily driver the factory filter has a check ball for oil drain back so you don't end up with dry starts it really helped when i had my 22r[cheers]

maybe find a used head to rebuild first and just swap it over on a weekend? I belive all 83+ heads are EFI compatible and will directly bolt on. Some of the older ones I think you may need to tap a couple new holes for the efi manifold.

Older as in pre 83? or do you mean the 83-88 wont work with the 89+ efi?



almost ready to mount sue?

not yet:( Haven't had much time to work on it lately. I'll be ordering the rebuild kit this week. Got lots of little things to do in the mean time whil I wait for shipping...


did you get the block decked? the heat shaved?

looks nice with the new pistons.

The block seems to be within spec still, so I'll probably just leave it. The head definitely will need to be shaved though.

And I don't have any new pistons. #1 cyl is clean because thats the one that blew the hg -- the rad fluld gets in there an basically steam cleans everything :D #4 is also a little cleaner than the rest if you look close so it was probably gone as well.

[quote=Big_Ern]Older as in pre 83? or do you mean the 83-88 wont work with the 89+ efi?



well the heads have a different tapped hole for the knock sensor or something, forget what it really was but you need a post 83 (although im not 100% sure) but anything from 84 -89 should be the same becaue its still a 22re right?

Big_Ern
01-23-2006, 04:10 PM
not necesarily. There were carbed 22r's up until 89 I believe. might not have been very common, but they did exist in 2wd p/u for sure.

And you can tap a new hole for the knock sensor. I'm not sure if you can put it in the stock position, but its close enough that it will work just fine.

godzuka
01-23-2006, 04:43 PM
i think post 83 has a smaller combustion chamber for the flat top style pistons. the older engines had a domed top piston with a larger combustion chamber. if you need a head i might know where one is.

84 22r/ 22re and under heads are the same..... (with the exception that 83-84 heads have the extra holes to mount a fuel injected intake) 85 22r/22re and later heads are the same... only difference is the 22rte head.

BOTTOM LINE . what do you want out of the engine ?
Looking for reliablility #1 -- something that will last the life of my truck, and with the small milage I put on it, I think this rebuild should last (assuming i don't bugger something up).

And hopefully a bit more low end torque while I'm at it. For this I've ordered Comp Cam's 252S. Should hopefully give me a decent increase from idle to 3000rpm

I assume you're talking about the valve adjuster screws?
Where's a good place to get these? Thats one of the few things not included in my rebuild kit...

you asked for some pics... here ya go .

Thanks for the pics Corey. :)

Gives me some good ideas... I am thinking black block, bare alum head w/ clearcoat, red valve cover w/ bare TOYOTA lettering, and bare alum intake with red EFI lettering.

only place for the adjustment screws ... is the dealer or me ... but freight being and issue ... well email me ....

cam is good ... just be sure if you plane the head and block (which you should do) you speck the cam for timing .

black is not always a good choice .... I use FLAT or MAT black , that way , if there are any leaks , you can see it ... This RED engine block you can clearly see the leak .... (it's upside down)

I checked my block with a good straight edge & feeler guages and its well within spec... only a few thou out at most.. was hard to measure that fine. Think its still necessary?

Good point about not being able to see leaks on the black.. I had never thought of that... and the red is kinda growing on me.

but soon remedied with a factory OE gasket .

Personally ... I would do the head anyway ,I always have ... why chance it . It only a few bucks for insurance ... while your at it , have them pressure check it for minute cracks in the intake surface(ususally an added service)

Big_Ern
02-03-2006, 09:56 PM
the head is warped pretty good from overheating it, so I'll be getting it planed for sure, but the block looks to be in good shape still. I was planning on getting the head checked for cracks as well as well as the valve seats reground (they're not bad so probably just a bit of grinding compound should work)

thanks for all the help so far[cheers]

hope it all works out for u... your head wasnt too badley warped when i surfaced it so that good but since your not surfacing the block just sand the gasket off with sand paper, dont use scotchbrite pads they will make the surface uneven,we get so many people that do that to their blocks and heads and it just ruins them, ohya and thanks for the spacer, cant wait to test it out on the trails, cheers!

Big_Ern
02-08-2006, 10:59 AM
Hope it works out for ya garrett & thanks again[cheers]

pm me , how much is it gonna cost to get the head ready?

Cost me a little over $260 to get the head & crank done. I worked a deal with them tho for a driveshaft spacer, so I'd imagine it would be around 300 depending on what you want done.

I had the
-head cleaned & checked for cracks
-head resurfaced
-valve seats ground
-new exhaust valves since 3 of mine were bent (ground to match the seats)
-intake valves cleaned, ground & the top of them machined (since I'll be putting on new adjuster screws)
-crank polished

I think that's it. Couple of my rockers were lumpy but they had some extras laying around that I was able to get thrown in & all them cleaned. Valve guides were nice & tight still so I didn't need to replace those.


I kind of wish I had of taken my block in to get done as well after seeing how nice everything looks now, but I didn't feel like trying to lift it into the back of my car. So I just borrowed a ball hone and did that myself at home.

ya, that was the plan Mikey. The EFI is real picky about too lumpy of an idle and I've heard good things about this one from people with EFI. There's a couple other cams that I would have got if I had a carb'd 22R, but the efi gets confused and runs like crap.

This cam is supposed to add an extra 25% torque from idle to just over 3000rpm. Small increase in HP down low too. Peak #'s should all be the same though.

Gonna go to the lordco trade show and see if I can score a deal on some nice racing seats like a lot of the ricers use. Something with good side support so I'm okay with just the lap belt (or nothing) most of the time. nNeeds to have the holes for 4 or 5 point harness tho so I got it for doing stupid stuff down in moab etc


I'm running some bucket seats right now. Not sure what they're out of, but I think it might be honda. Pretty comfy, but just not enough for hardcore wheeling

there's really not that much benefit for the extra work to switch to a dual row chain. I've got a quality one with steel backed guides, so it should be good.

I officially hate my truck . so i am gonna vent on your thread (I am on my second glass of port:p )it seems like i am dealing with one fuckin nit picy part after anoter. I have a fuel leak at a connecter that wont go away so i am just gonna remove it for the fourth time and solder it all , then i have to do my exhaust systen into a 3" pipe [27] open headers sure are loud[27] i already had to modify the long tube headers because it sat right on top of my drive shaft [27] (I think my sas might have been a contributing factor) [27] I hate working on shit like this especially cause it is really uncomfortable,painfull and sucks ass, ther is still a ton of stuff i need to deal with which i am avoiding (I wish i had my old truck still [27][27][27])

barracuda
05-10-2006, 10:31 AM
are you sure it had no oil pressure? normally when cylinders to rings seize because of lack of lubrication there is a degradation in its operation and its workings become laboured then when it finally cannot overcome the friction it will friction weld the rings to the cylinder.
Prior to that the timeing chain would have very little to keep tension on because oil low oil pressure (If i recall they are kept in check by an oil pressure tensionor) so you would hear that slap. Perhaps something broke (Timeing chain related?)causing a sudden cessation of operation .
I guess you will find out when you do the Autopsy

Big_Ern
05-10-2006, 11:30 AM
Cranked it over for a bit with the coil disconected hoping to build oil pressure before it started. THen it fired up and we reved it up 2-3000rpm to start breaking in the cam and ran great for a little over 30sec. And once it wore the assembly lube off it seized. No rod knock or any sort of warning... running great then it seized solid. bumped the starter just to double check and it could barely even turn it. Checked the oil filter and it was bone dry[27]

We're assuming that the main & rod bearings are seized to the crank. We put lots of atf on the piston rings so they should be okay still (I hope... since they were brand new). Like you say kyle, they usualy seize from degrading over time and also heat. 30 sec of running wouldn't heat them up enough to do that.

Yes, the timing chain is kept tight by oil pressure, but it also has a small spring inside meant to keep a little bit of tension during startup before there's any oil pressure. Didn't hear any slap, but with new guides it might not be noticeable.


i'd borrow a oil pressure gauge tool.... that screws into the block and goes direclty to a guage...... u know like the ones shops use?? that blows man..... i dont remember coating mine in grease or anything when i rebuilt mine... just cranked it over until i had oil pressure...... but i had a gauge :D

but was yours a brand new oil pump? if you re-used the old one I imagine it would still be lubed enough. Rebuild kit included a new one, so i used that.


I have an oil pressure gauge, but it was for the old 20r motor and has never been hooked up (as with the rest of my gauges)


the biggest thing I'm worried about is my new cam $$$ hopefully it will be okay since it was only run for 30sec of the 15mins break in period.




So ya, gonna go grab some breakfast get rid of this hanngover and then I'll be out there working on it all day[27]If anyone wants to stop by to help or just have a beer stop by[cheers]

Pulled the motor today and took off the oil pan. Found a couple small chunks of plastic... I'm guessing from the timing chain guide since it get tensioned by oil pressure the chain probably slapped around a bit.

Pulled it apart tonight.


1 or 2 rod bearings & 2 crank bearings were seized pretty good. one had alot of metal(bearing??) shavings on it. couple were spun as well. The rest still had a bit of assembly lube on them and looked okay.

all the pistons still move freely and the cylinder walls are still covered in atf. so they should be good.

2 of the cam lobes look a little dry & scoured, but I hope they should be okay.... The rest all still had a bit of lube on them.




So I don't need a whole rebuild kit. Just gonna throw some new rod & main bearings, polish the crank and throw 'er back together again.


and pack the fuckin oil pump full of vaseline[1c] [27]

was missing some thrust bearing from the machine shop (they forgot to order them) So I fiannally got tho in.


Gonna cook up some steaks and then head back out to assemble the engine so come on over to help or just drink beer[31] [31]

I found out why the oil pump didn't work last time.

Fucking dumbass me forgot to put on the Fuckin drive spline over the crank before the oil pump goes over top[27] [27]

Found it sitting in a box at the back of the shop with my old timing set covered in about 5 months worth of grinding dust...[27]

Which means the oil pump wasn't even spinning[27] [27]

That would explain why my main crank pulleys didn't line up 100% either[16]


But Bruce brought up a valid point to look at it as a good thing since now we know that the oil pump never was spinning and thus never even had a chance to prime..., so I don't have to worry about why it didn't prime and can throw it together with some assembly lube like usual and not have to worry:rolleyes:

Good you found the problem [27]
I agreee with bruce. it is better to know what the problem is that way it can be resolved. if you had taken the whole thing apart and were only able to find the symptoms and not the cause of the oiling issues, you would be far less comfortable re-assembleing it.

Sue is broken so I'm not going wheelin tomorrow so I decided not to pull an all nighter... Gonna finish 'er up in the morning and should have it fired by the afternoon.[36][36]


i didnt forget the thrust bearings.......you didnt ask for them..........

I thought they were in with the main bearings for some reason. I think they were with my rebuild kit. Anyway, no worries, I needed the extra time to get some other little stuff done in the engine bay.

guages still don't work...:confused:

But this time we pulled the oil filter after cranking it for 10sec to make sure it was full.


Hooked up the oil pressure sender to my factory oil gagues and it doesn't read anything. So I checked my oil sender with the multimeter and it always reads an open circuit... When I pulled it out during rebuild, I reinstalled it with teflon tape, so maybe thats stopping it from grounding to the block??
