DailyDrivenTJ Not trying to revive an old thread but just wondering how the truck is running.

4wdoutfitters Hey Jake, do you have the name and number of the machine shop in south Florida. I have a Land rover block I would love to have them put the liners in. I know this was a couple years ago, but thought I would try it anyway. Did you ever get to take the truck to South America? Thanks Martin.

turbodave This is a great post. Well done on pulling the sleeves yourself - this is probably why your machining was so cheap. I was quoted between $150 and $200 per cylinder.

Really good seeing a success story.

mbruneaux This one of those posts that makes you regret ever paying someone to do your work for you or throwing out a bad block.

Great job

It is back together and already in the car. Completely stock rebuild. Should be starting it up today and then after doing a transmission fluid + filter job and doing some test runs, I'll finally have time to post all my assembly videos and pics.

jthomas Update:

Engine is in the car, have to install radiator, coolant temperature sensor gauge, hook up oil pressure gauge, rebuild driveshafts, change transfer case oil, and then I can start it up.

Some pictures to look at until I upload all my engine assembly videos in glorious 720p High Definition.

Block back from machinist - $510 total for boring lip and large cylinder diameter to accept sleeves, install sleeves, hone each cylinder to each individual piston, resurface block. Took a week because they had 2 aluminum cutting bits break on my block.





Pistons Installed:





Oil Pump Gears Installed & Packed With Vaseline/Permatex Red Assembly Lube Mix:

I was going to, but the machine shop that did the sleeve work was 1 hr away, the machine work wasn't too expensive, and I didn't want to waste gas going back just to push in the sleeves. It wouldn't have been hard though. I had them use my grill propane bottle and flamethrower/large torch.

Machine work - $520.
Sleeves from Turner Engineering - $626

Machine work included boring old cylinders to larger size for sleeves, machining lip on top of cylinders for top-hat/flange of liner, installing new sleeves, honing each cylinder to each piston, and decking/re-surfacing the block.

Finished the engine. Took High Definition video of ALL engine assembly. Will be uploading to YouTube soon. Lots of pics. Just stuck on where to buy 80mm driver's side idler pulley that the previous owner did not give me with all the parts. Expect more videos to be updated with this thread once I get it running, flush the transmission, and check for ABS codes (car was missing Hill Descent Control switch which leads me to believe the 3 amigos brake error codes were showing up).
