First motor build ever - Thread






















Rebuilding the 22re in my truck currently. Will post the process as I go along. Am already down to the bare block so have skipped some, but thereís plenty left to show.

The truck odometer says 115k miles. Pics show the wear along the sides of the cylinders. I started tearing it down due to the broken timing chain, leaking water pump and bad valve seals. But as I got into it, decided to go all the way. (A problem I have lol)

Having trouble. Attaching videos, any tips?

Any input, tips, tricks and things you wish you knew before your first build, please share. Thanks! Liking this forum a lot so far.

Best tip I can give you it to take your time and pay attention to the little things, read the build up's others have posted.
Maybe I missed it but what year is the engine?

That is a clean truck!

I think the easiest way to post a video is to upload it to YouTube and post the YouTube link here.

The advice above about taking your time and paying attention to the details is good. High quality parts are a must.

Yes, I learned the hard way about buying the cheapest parts. Who would have thought a $19.99 oil pump wouldn't last 4 months...

My "quality" DNJ oil pump started leaking after less than 40,000 miles. Stuff happens sometimes.

Thanks! Iíve been using all OEM parts so far and will continue to do so.
Just dropped off the block/crank/Head/camshaft/Pistons & rods at the machine shop yesterday.

They didnít seem too happy that I only wanted them to do the machining and Iíd be using my own parts(from LCE).. but are going to do it for me still.

Gave them LCEís tech line phone # and spoke with lce to have them make contact with the shop as well.
Hoping all goes well with the shop and communication stays good.
Having the shop bore as little as possible for what the cylinders need to ďclean upĒ. Also waiting to hear if the crank needs machining or just polishing.
the cam looks okay besides a small rust spot or 2 but waiting to hear what they say about it.

Its been difficult setting up things with the machine shop as Iím a motor newbie and they are country folk(donít seem to like my approach).
Ive let them know Iím just ocd and am spending a lot of $ and want to keep communication completely open in order to have it go right the first time.

Will keep updating this thread as i hear more. In the meantime here are some things Iíll be working on...

*Cleaning up & painting the oil pan
*Taking apart and replacing the seals on the leaky power steering pump
*Taking apart, cleaning up and rebuilding the alternator(probably just brushes)
*Removing driveshaft and sliding the trans back to make dropping the engine in easier (some of the bolt hoes were a bit shot from the last time I replaced the clutch(may need to drill and re-tap some
*Degreasing and cleaning up the engine bay
*Touching up minor rust spots under the radiator and anywhere else I see
*Rebuilding the idler arm
*Sending injectors out to witchhunter
*Removing broken slave cyl mounting bolt and replacing both with new ones
*Cleaning up & painting random parts/brackets
*Ordering lots of parts from LCE after hearing back from machine shop

Sounds like a plan!

It would also be a good time to check the condition of the Engine Coolant Temperature sensor, the Throttle Position Sensor, the Air Flow Meter, and the Cold Start Injector Timer.

I will look up how to test those. Thanks! Probably gonna just get a new TPS from 22reperformance. Tried to adjust mine and it may be on its last legs.

Nice.. What does the clutch look like now, engine mounts in good shape?
Ever want to change your gauge cluster to an sr5?
On mine the oil sender was inside the bracket of the passenger side engine mount.
Moved it to the non-used plug near the oil filter.(remember if make the change you must change out the oil sender to the correct one)
Clean up the engine bay while the motor is out, maybe paint some?

The clutch only has about 5k miles on it so is good. Itís a Marin kit with a new flywheel. TThe mounts will be replaced before dropping it back in. Never thought about switching the gauge cluster. Like to keep the original odeometet in there. I believe the oil sending unit on mine was next to the oil filter already.
