Been one hell of a journey with the motor in this old #chevyvan... recently had both head gaskets fail on me. Again. Being that I’ve never been able to get it to run right since converting it back from propane, it’s getting the #vortec upgrade. Along with a new cam and lifters and pushrods and timing set... things are happening. •
Block has been stripped except for the crank and pistons. Lots of carbon. But the walls look great. Checked the lash and clearances all still tight. I may just leave the bottom end alone. Or maybe replace the bearings.
Some high compression pistons would be nice. But this is going to be a budget build if I decide to keep the 22.
On the V8 side has anyone put a gen I 350 in a yota? I'm pretty sure it won't fit under the hood. *** If anyone wants a complete 22re (disassembled) I have on sitting on another roll cart. For a fair price I'll let it go*** #22re#toyota#yota#4runner#firstgen4runner#22r#4x4#yotabuild#ls#vortec#v8#engine#350
