I have had an issue with my KA T getting hot at idle. Pick up the rpms or stomp it to the floor and it cools right back down. This issue seems like the water pump is not turning fast enough. I have literally changed everything. New radiator and cap, water pump, thermostat. i recently did a new build...

Overheating at idle and low RPM

Freshly rebuilt and heater core deleted. If I allow engine to sit and idle it will over heat. Pick up the throttle to around 3500-4000 rpm and the temp drops like a rock. Cooling system is all new. Have verified it is NOT a bad gauge with heat gun and second gauge. Heater core and all cooling lines ...

Re: Oiling issue?

I believe I found the issue with the last motor but just seems weird that it is always number 3 rod.
Mobil one oil and filter. Drifting when each one has gone.
I had stock oil pan and with the side loading on this last engine it was uncovering the oil pickup

Re: Oiling issue?

Spinning number three bearing. 2 engines were stock the third was built. clearances were right on spec. New oil pump, etc.
All three spun number three rod bearing. No part or system has been the same on all three. The built motor was running a oil cooler and still always seems to be number 3

Oiling issue?

I seem to keep having an issue with number three rod. Three different engines and all three have had issues with number 3 rod bearing. Anyone else have this issue. Or an answer to this issue?

Re: Need a little info

Ok I understand about the head and upper timing cover being the same. I am wondering about the front cover and oil pump. I cannot afford any surprised down the road is all.
So if I use the 13 bottom end I can use the 14 head, 14 upper and lower timing covers,14 oil pump without issue?

Hello. My name is Tony and I recently aquired a 97 240 with a bashed KA-T. Starting over and found that some of the motor issues may have been caused by the way this was built. Starting over and learning as I go.
