    2F Engine "resistance" cause?

    So... finally got around to putting the motor on a stand and flipping it over... Looks like the Oil Pan took some damage during transport and the resistance that I was feeling was when the big lobe of the crank came back around on the outboard side of #1...

    Builds Project Pikachu: 1977 FJ40

    The previous owner put some old field turf in and used it like an indoor training facility. As @cbmontgo mentioned no issues with keepers or Jack's rolling... I do my best to limit liquid spills, but at the end of the day it's a shop... I've thought about pulling up the turf, but man, it sure...

    2F Engine "resistance" cause?

    Thanks Jim... Yeah, that is what I was wondering... should be able to confirm once I get it on the stand.

    2F Engine "resistance" cause?

    Doh... yes, like I said... haven't removed the cover... I'm sure the cam is still in place, unless the previous owner did something with it...

    2F Engine "resistance" cause?

    Understood... * - no crank pulley... just BFN * - Timing cover in place * - "I" haven't removed any lifters... * - no Dizzy in place * - cam is in place... I assume... as timing cover, and presumably chain haven't been removed. One thing that looks odd is the combustion residue on the top of...

    2F Engine "resistance" cause?

    Could be I guess... in general all the bores look pretty good from what I can see from the top... guess I will see more once I drop the pan...

    2F Engine "resistance" cause?

    I recently picked up a 2F short block. When turning the crank by hand, there is what I will call resistance, in other words it hits a point in the cycle where it wants to stop (not rotate freely) and I have to apply more pressure in order to fight past the resistance and continue the cycle...

    Builds hairy_apple's 2FE build

    As for re-wiring... I did this years ago... my suggestion is to get a full sheet of 1/4" or 1/2" plywood. Use a sharpie to draw/label physical contact points (i.e. lights, horn, etc) on the plywood. Obviously lable (with masking tape) your wire ends. Once you have it all pulled out of the...

    2F Motor Damage?

    @Howard705 I am not sure I am following. I assumed that @Rock40 was talking about the type of compression test where you unscrew each of the spark plugs and test for compression stroke of each cylinder. What you mention sounds like trying to check pressure a different way...

    2F Motor Damage?

    So... I'm assuming that the drain plug check is just to get an idea of how much water is in there... As for the compression tests 1) what would the wet vs dry tell me? 2) is good compression a foolproof way to make sure that the cylinders dont have cracks? Or just higher probability... Just...
