Land Rover engine rebuild stuff you must know - CON ROD
There are more things to check with a feeler gauge than just valve
clearances on you Land Rover four cylinder engine. In this video we share
with you how to measure of couple of things on the 300tdi Land Rover engine
when undertaking repairs or overhauling an engine. Checks you should carry
out when removing the con rod from the crank.
We look at crankshaft end float and the need to check for distortion in
the con rod big end.
How to: Assemble Pistons with Rods
In this quick video I show you how to put together your piston and rod
assembly and get it ready for installation onto the crankshaft.
Here are the current specs for my KA build for those who are interested:
- .020" overbore
- Wiseco .020" over forged pistons
- Eagle H-beam rods
- Stock Crank
- No line boring or honing
- Clevite Main Bearings (In my other video, I showed you how to choose the
proper bearings for your KA. I'm going with the Clevite "standard" bearings
really for experimentation purposes, to see how they hold up.)

1989 Dodge Daytona Shelby Base line Dyno run. 1st pull was to set
the straps, 2nd run the guy running the Dyno messed up, 3rd and 4th run
were clean. Temp was 99.12 Deg F., 30.36 in-HG, 25% Humidity. Best run was
the last one at 273.49 HP and 280.37 Torque. These were base runs no tuning
has been done yet.
Blueprint 103 - Connecting Rods
Connecting rods are the crux of the engine. They're responsible for
carrying the force of the explosions that occur in the combustion chamber
and using it to turn the crankshaft. Oil clearance specifications of the
"big end" and "small end" are crucial to maintaining consistent oil
In this video we take 3 measurements:
Rod Journal (also called Crank Pin) Diameters
"Big End" Bore diameter
Using the Journal diameters and the "Big End" Bores, you can calculate your
oil clearances of each bearing. The process is illustrated here. Anyone
rebuilding an engine who doesn't know its history should check all of these
clearances whether or not they're re-using the rods. If the crank,
bearings or connecting rods are going to be replaced, it's imperative that
you measure the new parts as well to ensure they're in spec.

71 Dodge Daytona
Gary & Pam Beineke built their 1971(G-Series) wingcars based upon results
from a secret wind tunnel test report Chrysler had conducted in early 1970
on the new 71 Dodge and Plymouth B-bodies. No full scale cars were ever
built...until now. After building a car they tested the full scale version
in the A2 Wind Tunnel. This video shows the smoke testing from that day.
Bill Cosby 200MPH: In a Shelby Cobra
Bill Cosby bumped into Carroll Shelby one day, and Carroll told him he was
an American and needed an American car. Bill said his Ferrari would do 180,
So Carroll built him a Special Cobra that would do 200 MPH. It scared him
so bad he returned the car to Shelby!
