    3rd cyl. pics & info are in. Help!

    Alright, I just finished taking apart the 3rd cylinder on my XLT. Look at the pics below, each pic has a brief description of what was found. What do u guys think? How do I fix this? I've done one top end rebuild on a 760 I had but it was just cylinders & pistons. This involves the crank. I personally think it's outta my reach. I've never gone into the crank before. The other 2 cylinders look good. Anyway, check out the pics below!


    Piston with minimal visible damage.


    Loose screw inside PV compartment.


    Closer look at the screw that came loose.


    Washer (#5) & bearing (#6) are gone.


    Washer missing (melted) bearings probably sitting at the bottom of the case


    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    New crank piston and cylinder or hone the cylinder fix the powervalves
    Pics are hard to see is there any wash on pistons ?
    Pull the motor and split the cases if the cases are good start by finding a crank.
    Hardest part of splitting the cases is carefully cleaning them to reasemble.

    Get in there. You only learn what it's all about by having a go, and it's not rocket science! Ask,ask,ask questions on this site, and WORK CLEAN. I find a camera a good idea to help remember assembly details,and a pen and paper to draw things (it must be my age!). Download the manual, and follow instructions carefully (especially clearances). One other thing, DON'T re-use seals and gaskets, it's false economy, they'll just fail sooner. Good luck!

    Guys, it's been raining here in Miami since yesterday in the late afternoon. I will pull out the engine on Saturday. The biggest problem I have is TOOLS! I've loaned out most my tools in the last year or so & no one ever returns anything. Most of which I forgot even who I loaned them to so I'm making due with what I have but it's extremely hard to work with the wrong tools. I don't even have any type of torque tools. You know how you guys find yourselves cussing saying all sorts of nasty $h!t when you find yourselves stuck? Well, imagine me, I'm working with old rusty tools & as it is, I'm short on cash. Something as small as taking out the exhaust is hard labor for me without proper tools. I'm frustrated because it used to be so much easier & every 2 minutes when I get stuck I'm thinking; "DAMN! I wonder where my :whatever tool I need):: is" My worst fear is fixing it then run it for 5, 6, 10 hours & then finding myself in the same predicament in a couple months because I didn't do things right. That's why I've been thinking of purchasing a whole other engine in good shape with low hours. It gives me the chance to work on this engine for trial & error.

    NEVER loan out your tools....let friends use them at your house but never let them leave...they have legs and will not come back.
