you definitly know more than me about it, but doesnt the dist. shaft drop into the oil pump?cruiserdan said:Brass or bronze, I don't remember which of the top of my head. That process will ruin the bushing, then you get to buy a new block. I do not know of a sucessful attempt at duplicating one.

Yea, top those bad head gaskets off with a free two day rental car, completely free R&R of the gaskets, and also all free labor to replace everything else in there under factory HG recall ( front crank and cam seals, water pump, etc) and its really not such a bad deal. The 3VZE produces about 40 HP (IIRC) more than the 22RE, so its not "low power compared to the 22RE" by any means, its just low power in general, which is what I think you were trying to say? Dont know how to compare the mileage to the 22RE but at 6500 feet with an auto tranny, that 22RE is a "gas dog", and I'd rather want a gas hog that does about 18mpg most of the time and can actually climb up Pikes Peak, which I have done dozens of time in my trusty rusty Runner. Still, the 1FZFE is clearly completely superior. Anyways, again, just another data point.cruiserman said:The 3VZE makes such low power and is a gas hog compared to the 22RE.

Has anyone had to rebuild their motor becouse it wore out? Does the 1FZ ware out?
What's the leading reason for rebuilds?
