And the final engine tear down... SKIP TO INSTALLATION >>

The Engine Build


Here on the left we have the old oil pan and gunked up baffle and pickup, we'll be replacing these with a new GM pan kit for V8 Colorados/H3s. On the right is the front cover, camshaft and old oil pump. A new LS6 camshaft was installed (not shown) and we will be replacing the oil pump with a high flow Moroso one. The front engine cover will be reused after some cleaning and replacing the gasket.

Here is the new gasket set, it comes with most of the gaskets required for a rebuild and a new set of headbolts. The new Moroso high volume oil pump is on the right

After degreeing the cam the engine got a coat of Duplicolor Red engine enamel.

With the defelctor and pickup in place the front cover can go on. I needed to order a cam swap gasket set as the other gasket set didn't come with a new crank seal or the front cover gasket.
