    Default Numba1Stuna's 1990 7M-GTE Complete rebuild thread

    I have been doing a COMPLETE rebuild on my 1990 7M-GTE. Just got my head and block back from Boise Cylinder Head. They decked the block .015 and milled the head .006, then my work really began... In the last couple of days I have completely disassembled the head for a clean and precise rebuild. I know, I know... Pics or it didn't happen lol, so here is something better! Videos! They are also a little informational and you may want to bookmark them if you are doing it for your first time!

    1. Removed the intake and exhaust valves- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CsKiuRVtnJg&feature=plcp

    2. Cleaned the intake and exhaust valves, and the mating surface- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UUiwRXQM7GI&feature=plcp

    3. Lapped the intake and exhaust valves- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0BCh9CMRdkw&feature=plcp

    4. Installed the new valve guide seals- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w_Jm0-HQFvI&feature=plcp

    5. Blueprinting the water jacket ports on the head in order to remove old buildup and create a clean and clear path for the water to travel and cool the engine- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSlInWFGkes&feature=plcp

    6. Put the intake cam back in and am currently measuring the clearance between the cam and shims. In spec is between .006 & .010, had 7 that were not in spec... So we are going to have to take the cam back off and use a caliper to measure my extra shims and find the right ones to put in- NO VIDEO!

    I will make a video of it soon though. I still got a lot left to do! We are going to be putting new main and rod bearings in the short block, maybe new pistons(mine are still good and I have two sets for this car), and for sure new piston rings! More to come!

    My girlfriend did. her dad gave us a 2001 4x4 v6 ranger ext cab. Good free truck made it worth the long drive. I enjoy taking road trips so it was a vacation to me. The mountains are beautiful up there but driving through that pass in Nevada was kinda scary considering i dont do any driving in the snow regularly.

    Didn't work on the head today, tackle that tomorrow. But did end up cleaning and painting the valve covers. Going to paint the block the same color...

    Just realized that I haven't even shown you guys the exterior of the car... Got it as a parts car then decided to just rebuild it lol. It has a front body kit and aftermarket side skirts. Interior is a bit rough, and filled with parts right now, but I will invest in that after I get it running. Use to be a faded red, but here are the pics now, enjoy!
