once i had all the parts apart i put them all in the parts washer at work. i had to put the pistons on the wire wheel to clean them up

as for the block shit loads of brake clean and elbow grease. on the deck i had to use my drill with a wire wheel to clean the surface then finished it with a 3m scotch bright pad. The cylinders i just used a honing tool in my drill witch you have to do anyways to help the piston rings bed in

 

of course i used paint to make it look all shiny an perdy

Yep, understood. I just want to get all the oil and gunk off my 2jz block. I got a 2 car garage with about half a cars worth of space, few cans of degreaser, wax/grease remover and an assortment of different bathroom brushes... Oh and a few old towels :lol:

 

I make do

man i have a 1 car with no space at all i feel ya pain there lol

 

be careful what you use on alloy though if there is carbon build up in the bowls of the head use a peace of hard wood or something to scrap that off first

 

buy brake clean its your friend work just like contact cleaner and leaves no residue

Won't be opening it up, just a clean up like down between the rocker covers, sides of the block, just above the oil pan and behind the balancer just to remove the gunk. Also found out that the guy swapped over the sump from front to rear but didn't gasket them up so that's another thing I have to remember.

if your not opening it cover all the holes use degreaser let it soak and hit with a pressure washer

I'm so close to turning the key on this thing.....

 

my new ASI rad is hear all i have to do is mount Au thermos to it and find somewhere that has the correct thread size fitting for the tranny cooler

then fit all my new heater hoses fill the auto and power steering up with fluid and i can kick it in the guts

 

Quick question to any mx83 owner with the new Au thermos can i just use the plug that the small std fan uses or is that more for the air con

im talking about the small fan next to the clutch fan that is

Not an MX83, but I ran new wires on my MA70, also 7MGE. AU thermos draw around 30A, so I wouldn't trust the AC fan loom.

You'll also find that early 90s Camry temperature switches fit nicely in the plugged thermostat housing hole, and they're the type that goes open-circuit, which is the safest bet. If you want individual control of the fans, just ditch the emissions vacuum thing on the other thermostat housing port.

 

Funny how your cleaning process was exactly the same as mine; degrease and pressure clean block, wire wheel piston heads, dump the rest of the sh*t in a parts cleaner. Lol.

thanks for that info mate now i know to just rewire it

so your saying i can use a Camry temp switch to have it act as a Thermos instead of just a fan is that correct?

my new rad was to thick to use the Au thermos so had to use the std equipment witch doesn't worry me ATM

so if any body wants a brand new set of Au thermos $100 plus postage and there yours

i think the total rebuild cost ended up close to $1000 bucks witch isnt to bad considering i spent $400 on the head alone

the hoses and clamps and oils where the other most expencive things beleave it or not but im happy with the out come
