Default my Toy log: 6/2/2007

got out of work at 1, and i store my broken '92 truck behind my work.

waiting for my dad to get out of work, had to run som erands and such.
we get to my truck at about 4.
Busted ass, worked really hard and finally got the bad 22RE out of the truck at 9pm apparently the motor was rebuilt 40k miles ago, well the idiot that rebuilt it never put new frost plugs in it, the rear frost plug had a rust hole in it wich caused it to overheat.

anywho, motor is out and it was a PITA, but i now know how it goes back together :D

debating on getting my motor rebuilt or finding a different 22RE

I've been running over a year on a replacement motor, unknown miles, but runs good. Truck it came out of rusted its frame in half.

If anything, leave the bottom end alone, and refresh then top end...

i'm thinking of buying it, cutting the roof off and building a roll bar and wheeling it this summer, then this fall put the motor in my truck and part the rest out.

Log for today, 6/5/07

pulled the head off the motor cylinder bores look great, like the motor was rebuilt 40k miles ago, just like some jackass didn't change the frost plugs.

taking the head in to be checked to see if its warped or not, if it is warped i'm going to get it milled.

also thinking of getting a new cam since i've got the head off. any suggestions?

You can't go wrong with a comp 252S cam.

Keep it mild, the comp 252s would be a good choice, i had a 262, took a long time to get it running right

I would put a cam in for sure. Made a huge difference in power in my 22re. Made the power alot sooner in my truck. If you want another motor for parts i might have one for sale in a month or so. Think it might have spon a bearing. Still runs, just needs a rebuild. Its out of a 92 pickup(22re). Im putting the motor out of my 85 in the 92 and putting a built 350( really 357) in the 85.

mud'n'truck how does that cam do on gas mileage though? does it compleatly kill it or is it just 1-2 mpg?

i'd really like to pick up some power and not lose much mileage.

A cam like the 252S isn't going to hurt your mileage, might help it. Its designed to increase low end torque, which helps you by not having to stand on the gas as much.

forgot to update yesterday.

6/7/07:

Took the head in to the local machineist and he said its warped, and then showed me how the cam wouldn't spin freely in the head. He also said there is a way to bend it back. some jig that you put shims and bolt it down the put it in the oven, i dont know anything about it though.

I get real bad milage but i dont think its because of the cam. I think hagger is right with the better milage because it makes the power sooner which means you dont have to give it as much throttle.
