  1. I thoroughly enjoy knowing that the first time this engine starts up, its going to be in the best conditions it could have (humanly) possibly been. Love your work Eric!

  3. LOL Silicone. Use epoxy instead! head, oil pad, timing gaskets, cover them all with epoxy first, it’s stay on and hold out leaks really good

    Eric, you are such a tease.

    You’re seriously going to make us wait another week for the next part?

  5. Make sure there is no oil on the mating surface of two parts that go together especially if there is no gasket. I have reused metal gaskets and sometimes I spray Copper Coat on them first If i have any concerns about the gasket. I use a stud and nut to install balancer and such, Less chance of messing threads up on crank.

  7. You are correct. The 2.2L GM engines are famous for those to crack and fail making the chain rattle when the engine is running.

  8. The thermostat housing hasn’t been reinstalled yet. It bolts on where he’s pointing @43:38 so he’ll probably do that in part 5.

  9. Wire wheeling the pulley stub’s sealing surface is a bit of a concern for me. All of those areas that I’ve seen on cams/cranks look like a mirror-polished/machined surface, so I would be worried that the roughening of that surface (which is great for a flywheel or brake rotor) could chew up the seal and cause a leak later on. Perhaps I’m just making a mountain out of a molehill though.

  10. It’s a ‘wasted spark’ system that allows you to use half as many coils as you have cylinders for a four-stroke engine. Won’t work on a 3 or 5 cylinder engine, but for a 4/6/8 etc you can pair your opposite cyilnders’ sparks so that you can use less parts.

  13. Yeah I a S10 with the 2.2l, at 122,000 so far so good truck, but i hope I won’t have to worry about the guides breaking… If any has tips to keep it lasting longer, that would be great.

  14. I have a 02 S10 with the 2.2l as well, It is weak especaly with the A/C on but okay around town . The 2.2l are just a economical engine but can be reliable If taken care of. I’m hoping to get a different truck soon but I do like mine.
