    Engines seem so unnecessarily complicated lol. Awesome job and hopefully the car sees less neglect going forward.

    For sale on Facebook marketplace in 3…..2…..1….. I just feel sorry for the next owner who's going to be on the hook for a new engine on his recently Facebook marketplace purchase!

    Without the music it was much more enjoyable. If you really feel the need for music I recommend Iron Maiden.

    Àdd a comment…

    Sure hope you tightened the pickup tube bracket nut off camera 🤔

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bob Rob says:

    I did the same thing on my 74 Monte Carlo in 1988 only I was laying on the driveway with the front end up on jack stands. Man, I miss that car..lol.

    Some of that material looked like thrust bearing material… Did you look at the crank bearings? What is the hours on this repair

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Neal Rosenburg says:

    when you torque the caps, one doesn't need loctite on the bolts? Torqued to 17 psi is good?

    Most of the vids I watch are of very old cars being dragged out of a barn and just made to run again, which is great, but this fella goes right into the engine and explains everything great. He is a master at this stuff. Most enjoyable.

    I did several bottom end repairs on the big Cummins diesel engines, even a full in frame rebuild and always wondered if the same could be done on a gasoline engine. Now I know. Thanks Ray. 👍👍

    Excellent video

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars VAPhillyFan54 says:

    That was a banger. Nice job and congrats.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Preston Lard says:

    This customer has no idea how much he owes you most mechanics would have written that off as to much work sand condemned the car to the grave yard

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ratomir Filipovic says:

    I hope you tightened that oil pickup tube central bolt off camera, because i didnt see you do it on camera… Otherwise nice job

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars john desaavedra says:

    Excellent outcome! I have pulled an engine on a much simpler car ('59 Biscayne), installed the rod bearings, and drove it home before 5 the same day. It's much more of a chore now.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars RoadRacerGT says:

    Nice video. What is that hook tool you are using ? I'd like to get one. Thx.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hustlin AO1 says:

    Usually this doesn't work because of several reasons.1 being it egg shapes the rod itself.2 because of metallic substance in oil,cam bearings shot.3 cylinders scarred 4ect 5ect ect ect ect

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve Cooper says:

    I wander what the clearance is on number six ? You removed some material from the crank on six.
    Checking it would have only taken a couple extra minutes. If the tolerance is out of spec this repair job is a waste of time.Might last a week or two .

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian McGlynn says:

    I would pull the spun rod and get it resized. They can be reconditioned if not too bad.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gmot455 says:

    forgot to tighten oil pickup bolt. you got all the others

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nicholas Barnett says:

    Maybe I missed it but at the 28 minute mark when he reinstalled the oil pick up tube I think he forgot to tighten the third bolt/nut 🤷🏼‍♀️

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bunjovi Bandit says:

    Great repair videos. Love them. Can you start leaving a comment in the Video of the cost and repair it took on this engine

    AGAIN LOVE THE VIDEOS.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars my surly trucker says:

    Equally thanks for no music, great video 👍

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars frank o donnell says:

    because oil hear has gone so expensive we use , Diesel too flush a engine

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars frank o donnell says:

    do a video when changing oil , the before adding a engine cleaner and withought adding a engine cleaner , as i do the work

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars frank o donnell says:

    it would throw a rod but it does not got a rod

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars T Flores says:

    good ole Lucas booger glue. that stuff slicker than donkey dookey on a hot tin roof

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TY Harris says:

    Haven't watched all of part 2 yet but enjoyed part 1. I do Doordash 11 hours a day and listen to YouTube videos to occupy my mind as I drive. The algorithm correctly guessed I would like this. One question- wouldn't the cost of these time consuming and presumably expensive repairs exceed the value of an old POS mercury sable?

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars sjsz06 says:

    Ditto on the lack of music. Thanks!

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve Cobratei says:

    When people asked " how do you see" my reply was I go by feel or my fingers have eyes

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Schleicher says:

    That pan looks like its cracked?

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill says:

    Thanks for this video. I'm in the uk and will be doing the exact same task on my MGZT Turbo. My engine isnt anywhere as noisy as this one, I would describe it as a little loose. I will be replacing the cylinder head at the same time as this has to be removed also to get to the connecting rod bearings, (just one of the quirks of the Rover K Series engine, the bolts run all the way through the engine). This video has inspired me to get the job done.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dean Clover says:

    Watched entire video, and you forgot or didn't show you tighten the nut for the pick up tube. You threaded it on by hand then went straight to the two bolts for it. But never went back to tighten the nut for it. Watch it back, you'll see. I'd bet money it is now in the pan. Sorry for pointing it out, but had to say something.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Henry Duke says:

    You forgot to tighten that one bolt up on the oil pickup tube I hope it don't come loose and get into the engine I replayed the video three times you did not tighten it

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Doucette says:

    how did you get the broken bolt out of the exhaust?

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Camouflage Peacock says:

    Can you loan me some of your patience out of that patience bag of yours?

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars fixed game says:

    Just did same on a hyundai Accent 2013 previous owner had just had short block replaced and goofball mechanic installed dirty carboned up disgusting head back on it, which quickly contaminated oil( within 100 miles) with chunks of carbon and spun a rod bearing, I was so pissed. So I got to dismantle and clean head , put new valve springs valves and keepers and two new lifter buckets to remain in spec. Also just for kicks , I put in new Pistons/rings Rods/Bearings and crank bearings, new oil pump water pump timing chain. 1000 bucks later got to drive my new used car, so far so good installed oil catch can and have changed oil 3x in 500 miles. no noise and zero oil burning.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Peter Torregrossa says:

    Did u use standard or oversize bearings? I would have tried oversized bearings since the engine already spun a standard, has some wear, and u had to take a little off that journal but not as much as if u were to turn it down.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donald Clark says:

    Good job

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Zach Brown says:

    those 3.0L 24V motors were honestly quick and decently reliable…as long as you change the
    oil 🤦‍♂️ lol i used to have a 2001 Ford Taurus SEL with the same motor and i loved it

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Urban SoundScapes says:

    Amazing repair work, would never have crossed my mind that this approach could be so successful! Brilliant job Ray 🙂

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Wilson says:

    Nice job. Reminds me of a 85 Toronado that I bought and it had a #5 bearing that was completely missing with only 60000 miles on the car. Well after new crank and bearings it was as good as new until my son drove it with a coolant leak and overheated the motor. A few minutes later and he T boned a 3/4 Chevy at a 4 way and bent the frame on the Toronado. I had my son buy his next car!
