Blueprint 104 - The Crankshaft
It's important to know what you've got even before dealing with the machinist. If you want to inspect a crankshaft, this is how you do it. I detail the process of removing the crank and what to measure. All specifications in this video are illustrated with a 6-bolt 4g63 turbo block, but are all actually the same for 7-bolt engines with the exception of the rod widths.

A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
1996 Toyota Tacoma 600,000 miles!
I bought this truck used with 33,000 miles on it. It still has the original engine, transmission, air conditioning, back brakes (yes back brakes!) water pump, Original K & N air filter. I change the oil every 5,000 miles sometimes I go well over 12,000 miles without an oil change and that's the truth! coz' I thought this truck wouldn't last any longer but it still goes so I think it's time I baby this truck and change the oil more often. NO additives were added to this engine like synthetic engine treatments. Why do I have so many miles people ask? Coz' I used to work as a messenger driver for a shipping company.
Update: My back brakes were finally replaced at 624,517 miles. This truck is being maintained by my good friend and mechanic Tony at Glendora Auto. 676 E. San Bernardino Road, Covina CA 91723. 626-331-3100. You need an honest mechanic if you want your truck to last!!!
Million Mile Ford
Doug Schell's 1997 Ford E-250 has broken the Million Mile wall
PLEASE E-MAIL DOUG IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS OR WANT MORE INFO, AS HE IS THE OWNER OF THIS VAN
Here is a excerpt from what Doug said about his van
Hi, Im Doug, aka Mr Main Event. Im an expediter contracted on with Bolt Express in Toledo, Ohio. I drive a 1997 Ford E-250 and it now has over 1,000,000 miles on the original motor and original transmission. Both have never been rebuilt. Many parts on my van are still original. Ive never had the transmission pan off and have never replaced the transmission filter. Ive used only Valvoline brand of Oil and have used their T-Tech machine for my transmission fluid changes at approx every 50,000 miles. I change my oil approx every 10,000 miles. I have to add a quart of oil every full tank of gas so there is always some new oil in the pan. I just wait for it to go black before changing it. My longest period between oil changes was 55,000 miles a few years back. Is that bad?? I use the regular Oil, no high milage oil. On 7-16-07 I replaced my first muffler and tailpipe, in front of the muffler still original. I was able to get over 500,000 miles on my original serpentine belt before changing it. I kept it as a high milage trophy belt. I had to keep a belt with that many miles on it. With 1 million miles on the van, Ive only broke down 6 times. 2 times it was the alternator, 3 times it was the fuel pump and once was a wheel bearing. Most all my repairs are done by Mytee discount automotive on Holland Sylvania rd in Toledo, Ohio. B&R quick lube in Monroe, Michigan is the oil change place that taught me about all my fluid changes. Big thank yous go to both of them places.
ORIGINAL PARTS: Motor, Transmission, both radiator hoses, water pump...
REPLACED PARTS: 3 Fuel pumps, rebuilt alternator 3 times, 2 front springs and usual front end parts, 1 radiator in July of 2004 but still original hoses, 3 or 4 serpentine belts, turn signal unit, 2 windshields, driver side mirror and normal tune up parts.
Did I mention I did all these miles with no cruise control and last 5 years with no air conditioning?!
