I need piston rings for 1991 7.3 IDI. What do they mean bore size Std., .020, .030, .040?

.20 .30 and .40 are oversizes. you have to measure the cleaned up bore to order the right ring set. if you are going to replace the rings you should get the cylinders bored and honed

Sluggish no power cant get over 90kms

this is caused by loose compression.

either worn out piston rings or cracks in the combustion chamber.

replace your piston rings and cylinder head gasket. then bring your cylinder head to a machine shop to have it resanded.

if cracks are present in the combustion chamber, then one of the best solution is to have it rebored (to widen the current diameter of the combustion chamber) and replace your pistons with the correct diameter of the new hole.

Installed a stroker kit on a 351c engine. Seems to have good compression but smokes when slightly hot. Oil in tailpipe. Just did valve stem seals. Engine has always run right at the edge of the...

Not really sure about the 5% variance unless you measured cylinder bore. The problem could be in the ring material which could be yet a third metal. Every metal has its own expansion rate. Perhaps the rings were okay for the diameter of the bore, but were they too thin for the grooves in the rings?

Even new engines like the new 600HP Mustang can have bore distortion. The cylinder walls go eliptical when heated. Operating temperature can have a small role, but really you are probably talking about 20 degrees to bring it into a normal range?

You might try using a high temperature Laser thermometer on your exhaust manifolds. This would show if 1 particular cylinder is running hotter. Exhaust manifold shape, tight cylinder bore, etc. but at least you would get the right side or cylinder to start looking for the problem on.

I hope my solution is helpful.

How to remove crankshaft for campbell hausfeld compressor

I assume you have removed the valve head-valve plate-cylinder assembly from the base and pistons. Remove the four bolts holding the bearing cap assembly on one side of the crankcase and remove the cap. You have to pull on the crank to get the crank bearing out of the opposite side of the crankcase. Move the crank forward and turn it until the rear bearing will clear the crankcase and the whole thing will tilt and come out the top. Campbell sells the entire crank, con rods, pistons & rings as an assembly under part number VT040600AJ. This is the best way to go as they don't have con rods to go on the crank if you were to get the journals turned down. NOTE: During reassembly, the bottoms of the cylinders have a taper so you don't need a ring compressor to get the pistons in the cylinders. Just be sure the oil rings are in properly before pushing the cylinder all the way down. The thin oil scrapper rings have a tendency to fold over and get caught between the piston and cylinder.

How do i start to rebuild my 1996 dodge engine 5.2 liter

First thing is to tear it down and make sure you mark what pistons went in what cylinders. Then you will need to take precise measurments of the cylinders, looking for "out of round' and taper. This involves the use of micrometers. If the cylinders are within wear limits then you can just install new rings and hone the cylinder walls. If they are not then the block and all the pistons need to go to the machine shop for "boring out" the cylinders and pressing on new pistons. The crankshaft will also need to be measured at the bearing surfaces. If they are within wear limits then the crank can be polished and reused, if not then it has to be replaced. All cylinder head work needs to be done by a machine shop.

After all the measurments have been taken, the right size rings, and bearings can be ordered. Rebuilding an engine is not a task that should be done by a novice.

Can i put a 96 inch top end on my 2000 roadglide without doing anything with the botom end?

You can install 95 cubic inch pistons and cylinders without disassembling the lower cases. The trickiest part of the job is installing the pistons into the cylinders, it is difficult to get a ring compressor around the piston, and then lower the cylinder onto it. You'll need a narrow ring compressor that will separate to allow you to get it around the connecting rod to get it out of the way of the cylinder. I installed forged pistons, new cylinders and heads on an '01 Dyna a couple of years ago, the only part I had to farm out was pressing the new cams into the cam plate.

take the measurement of your block.

having a smaller ring will ensure block not being damaged but prone to a Blow-By. a too-tight ring can get your block damaged. so for you to know which size to get regardless of the stock size, tyr to get the block measurement first, then off you go wich ring to get

Cylinder head skim

From my understanding, the combustion area of the head should have a diameter that is the same as the cylinder i.e. 56mm. If you took 0.5mm from a standard head, your squish would PROBABLY be Ok, however, you need to measure this. Its quite easy, poke a piece of solder wire in to the cylinder via the spark plug hole and trap it between the piston and the head by gently turning the engine over with the kickstarter by hand. Remove the squashed solder wire and measure with a set of vernier calipers. 0.8mm is about right and as Elf said, anything below this is getting a bit close. Do this for the front, back and left and right of each cylinder. Reducing the squish only has only a moderate effect on the compression ratio and does not require higher octane fule. I did this for mine and it was fine - so you 'should' be Ok.
