Most important is to remove the ridge at the top of the cylinders from the wear created from the old pistons .2 reasons --first it allows piston removal with out the hassle and broken ring lands and 2 when you fit new bearings to the con rods and new pistons the rings will not hit this edge and break the lands or/and rings at TDC. It can be done in car . Ensure that you clean out the head stud holes before reassembly. If you are not sure of the procedures and tensions get yourself a good workshop manual as there are tricks to the job.

How to set Valve clearence in Mitsubish Lance 1987 Engin model G15B


When Piston 1 is at TDC, (timing points inline), both valves are closed and there should be a gap, say 12 thou on exhaust and 8 thou on inlet. Turn the engine until Piston 2 is at TDC, (both valves closed as with number 1) and adjust, keep going until all pistons have had the clearance set.

Un seized the piston and engine turned easily turning the flywheel by hand removed flywheel piston down put it back and removed again later dont know if the piston was down engine now tight to turn


Pistons only seize when they set for a long time when moisture or water in the engine( will eat the rings up, rust, smokes oil). Bearings lock. You can break them free, but will usually lock again with a 360 degree turn on the crank shaft. Either way I would rebuild or replace the engine. Depends on the engine.

I have a makita ek7301.replaced the cylinder and piston. After putting it all back together and trying to start I noticed a metal to metal knock when pulling..something internal..crakshaft?


Did you use assembly lube when replacing the piston? Did you remember to set the piston ring in place? Did you also replace and pre-pack the crankshaft journal bearing? If not, go check your work again.

I have a 2001 Isuzu Vehicross 3.5 engine. Which piston do I set the timing on of which must be at TDC? Is it the number one piston or number two piston?


number 1 piston should be at top dead center. remove the number 1 plug and insert a straw, or a soft object in hole on top of piston. this way when it is all the way up and just before it starts to go down you will know. if it has a dist. make sure rotor button is facing number 1 plug wire. good-day !

I am replacing the rear brakes on a 2000 taurus wagon and it seems thea the piston on the caliber is frozen. How do I unfreeze it and if I can't is it difficult to replace the caliber?


The rear caliper piston has to be pushed and turned in, due to the emergency brake set up. There is a tool than can be used to turn the piston in, then press the piston in, then turn the piston again, until the piston is collapsed, you'll have to do this a few times, turn the piston clockwise. You might want to spray some WD-40 around the seal and piston to help turning the piston.

I am in the middle of replacing the timing belt on a 05 honda odyssey touring, before removing the old belt, the manual is saying to turn the crankshaft pulley to its white mark [which i can see] lines up...


Remember that for every rotation of the cam there two rotations of the crank. Rotate the crank a further 360 and bring the piston to TDC and the white mark should now align on the cam.

Changing rear brakes on 2006 pontiac G6 how do i depress the calipers it seems the old fashioned way is not working....


Ok! here is the solution ...
After changing the pad dont try to push back the piston the old fashioned way or you will broke the caliper casting.
This new kind of break should be only twisted clockwise to bring the piston back to its position you can use only long nose pliers to rotate the piston since there is two cavity on the piston for this use.
Also after setting the piston back to it's position take care of the seal around the piston be shure before replacing the caliper over the disk that the seal will not go between the disk and the pad...
slide the pads gently to it's position and that's it.

I have a spun rod bearing, and a scored crank


Talk to an engine rebuild shop near you. They should be able to save your crank if it's not broken, and get you a set of bearings and piston or anything else you need. They'll be in the Yellow pages.
