Are you replaceing the crankshaft as part of a performance rebuild? not necessarily a solution, but i recommend that you have your crank and other rotating assembly parts balanced by your machine shop. it is also critical that you check your clearances or you could damage the rotating assembly parts. i recommend purchasing a chilton's, or haynes manual. these manuals walk you through a teardown and rebuild procedure. my advice is not meant to be insultive to you because i dont know your mechanical skill level, but it would be a shame if your engine seized due to a bent rod/bearing failure because you did not check your clearances. good luck with your install

It has a 351 Windsor motor in it. I has a terrible knocking sound. We replaced the main bearing and timing chain. What could it be?


How were the rod bearings? I always check them whenever replacing the main bearings. Why did you only say "main bearing"? There are always more than one.

could also be part of the fuel pump dropping do into the oil pan is now hitting the crank, but you checked the oil pan for "bits and pieces" when you took it off to change the main bearing - right?

I was changing my head gaskets on a 2001 windsor 5.4l triton and I forgot to put the cam lock on the cam before removing the chian. How can I determine the right position of the cams now?


Ok I spent half an hour typing in detail how to re-time your cam and then decided it would take me hours to type out the process and thought surely someone out there must have the steps and possibly even diagrams so I started searching the internet and found a few different instructional how too's. Several of them were missing steps/hard to follow or (based on my knowlege) way wrong. However I did find one with step by step instruction in detail with diagrams, and again based on my knowlege "a flawless how to" that was proper.

I know the instruction says its for the 4.6l however, the timing process is identical for the 5.4L (Windsor v8) nice motor by the way. So dont freak-

Looking for a little more power for f250 have 302 4x4 4 speed granny.wondering what it would take to install small block 351


not too much work,the motor mounts-bell housing and crankshaft (for the flywheel off the 302)all should be the same.if the 351 had an automatic transmission,then you will have to add a pilot bearing to the end of the crank (center of crank where flywheel bolts on)..Also it depends on which oil pan is on the new engine--to follow the curve of the frame but should be the same as a 302....302 and 351 windsor engines are the same block except the intake manifold.Just a reminder,truck engines have a better cam for more torque.If the truck is fuel injected you will also have to change the computer which would be located drivers side left upper kick panel.The exhaust manifolds may be different,check them out before starting the procedure.

Need info to rebuild 351 windsor motor 1998


port polish only on heads, they crack plus valve job. on the block and cam, that motors all torque so go with low end output, fat cam, 30 over max on bore-they crack. safest way for big power is a stroke kit. call edelbrock tell them you wishes and what you have now, main thing is how much your gonna have to bore to clean up walls, and they give you some good options. unless you have alota money and dont require this motor to be dependable dont expect more than 320hp and 350 ft of torque. 302 will take you farther cheaper and lighter for your money. if your talking for a car and not a truck- go 302 and dont look back

I need a diagram to show me how to replace my timing chain on a 94 gmc cierra p/u truck 4.3l engine v 6 2 door extended cab


I don't have a diagram but here are written instructions.

I don't know how much you know about the subject so I will start at the beginning. First you have to get to it, you can pull the motor or leave it in the vehicle. Its a little harder with it in depending on the space you have in engine compartment. If your leaving the motor in, which I imagine you are, your going to have to take the front end of the vehicle apart. Remove the grill, bumper if need be, radiator, fan, water pump, harmonic balancer, you will need to buy a puller and a installer for the harmonic balancer. You can get a puller kit from harbor frieght tools for $10. You can buy the installer from Summit racing (web site) for around $30 or you can buy one that will do both the install and removal from summit for $70. Once you have removed your harmonic balancer you can remove your timing cover to expose your timing chain. Turn the motor using a socket wrench until the timing marks on the crank gear and cam gear line up. The marks are usually just white dots, you want the crank mark to be up towards the cam and the cam mark towards the crank, the marks will be up and down from each other. Once you have the marks lined up remove the bolts holding the timing chain to the cam and crank. Remove the timing chain as a whole unit with the cam and crank gear still on it. If the crank gear doesn't want to come loose use your puller on it. when you get it off just put your new gear on and line up the timing marks then put it back on as one unit. If you cant get the crank gear on all the way by hand buy a crank install tool (summit) they run about $24. While you have the thing apart it would be a good Idea to put a new timing chain on. Depending on your vehicle this would also be a good time to change your cam if need be. Its not that hard to do it just takes a while, take your time and don't force anything. If you need anymore help my email is sterlingljles@yahoo.com
