Rebuild Questions And opinions.

What im asking guys is will i gain any horsepower or any better Gas mileage from this.

i have took my head off and sent it off to be rebuilt valves valve seats cleaned and the whole nine yards!!! (untouched stock cams will go back in) my car smoked when you got on it real hard so the valve seats were bad. anyways i got a (new headgasket). my cars (exhaust flange gasket) needed a new one also it was fried making the damn thing sound fuzzy and tracktor like. i also bought a new(o2 sensor upstream) and a new set of (PISTON RINGS). so my dads goin to drop my oil pan and check out the crank and see how everything looks. i also bought a new set or MAIN ROD BEARINGS.


so


1: Completely Rebuilt head
2:02 Sensor
3:Headgasket
4:Exhaust flange Gasket
5:Piston Rings
6:Main Rod Bearings



will my car seem any stronger faster better on gas? it had 220k miles on it before i started this.

Re: Rebuild Questions And opinions.

Mostly everything that you mentioned that you're replacing are consumable items, so replacing them will simply get you back to OEM "power".
You'll only gain back the power that you lost from those components that started wearing due to time, mileage, friction, etc,..... lost from the past mileage of you're motor.



Items directly associated with the combustion process, such as spark plugs, AFR, valves/seals, head gasket, piston rings, cylinder scores/marks, can DEF gain/rob you of HP, since they basically leak back the pressure created by the combustion process.

Re: Rebuild Questions And opinions.

you should get new clutch, new timing belt-things, valve cover seal kit, new valve seals, cam & crank seals, rod and crank bearings and so on..

Re: Rebuild Questions And opinions.

To answer your question, what mr. V6 says is key. You get back what time had little by little taken away. You may feel a bit more pizazz from your engine. You certainly will feel more confident that the farm tractor is now quiet and smoke free.
Now on the other hand, also like mr V6 said your power comes from compression in the pistons after the combustion has occured so good ring seal is key. At 220k that's like your cylinder head and exhaust mani... leaky.
If you decide to plug those leaks too, what mr T says would make sense.
If your pop is checking the lower end and doesn't like what he sees, then a rebuild will occur?

Re: Rebuild Questions And opinions.

Are you not going to put in new rings? That bearing is damaged for a reason. Could be lack of oil pressure there.. and rings are cheap.

I have a 91 waiting for a motor. The previous owner did what you are doing. When all those leaks were plugged in the top the bottom end was more stressed. He didn't address the bottom half and the rings in two cylinders are failing. And there's now a knock.
A few more $ and a bit more patience couldv'e prevented the worst. It was his daily driver so he took a chance.
I got a beautiful 91 for cheap so I aint complaining.
