on my vr6 rebuild
I did the following
honed the block
new rod bearing set
hears the story
my vr was once supecharged and when taking out 3 of my pistons they had cracked skirts. so at my job i had a few used pistons and i tossed the new rings on and put it in there
everytime i put a piston in i would turn the engine around and it would spin fine
but it kept getting tighter and tighter as i went to the next and next
on the 6th and final piston i droped it in torqued the cap and now the motor has locked up.. after takeing the piston out checking everything i gave up and threw a rod cap on there that i had around
so the motor turns now. but it feels tight in my opion
so my question is.. does a vr6 BRAND NEW rebuild have tight tolerneces? i can turn it with the 27 on the crank but u have to plant you feet almost but once i get it rotating with the wrench i can keep it spining..
in you honest opion am i just nerverous or would you have checked by a machine shop?
thank you ryan
