Default Rebuilding a D16z6 w/ Scrap Metal Money

Ok boys, I have a complete D16z6 long block in my garage and I've been thinking about doing another rebuild. I pulled it from a buddy's Eg and he let me keep it.

I would also like to add that this rebuild will be dedicated to a good Friend I knew for a short time that lost his life 3 weeks ago at the young age of 20. I remember when I was putting my gsr rebuild together, he was doing his z6 also.


Here is the motor that's we're going to rebuild.

But on this thread, I'm going to change it up a little bit. I'm not going to use NO money from my pocket. All the funds are going to come from scrap metal I get from work. I'll post pics so you guys know exactly what I'm talking about. Last month I threw load of scrap metal and man, it was good so if I keep that going, I can make this rebuild happen with like 6 or 7 loads





I just throw it on a pile of metal this yard has. And yes, that was a Honda block. A blown D16y8 I had and a couple worn out clutches that were trash. Also perfect for scrap.

Remember that D16y8 rebuild for Eg I did for my buddy? We might put this z6 in his car and the y8 on a ek. He's already saving up to buy from Honda a new z6 oil pump, water pump, timing belt and tensioner

disclaimer:
Refer to your owners manual for complete rebuilding instructions.
This is another one of my basic step by steps with pics to show how I'm doing this.
Build at your own risk y0!


so tear down begins,
Didn't take a lot of pics due uber oily hands
today, my buddy's brother will have the honors in the tear down.



removing head bolts...



head is off. Setting it to the side for machine shop after block is cleaned up.
Getting the head done is the easiest part..



freken block still had coolant in it.
Removed drain plug and drained.



after all was drained, flipped to remove girdle bolts.
gotta love that 1/2" Makita

after removing girdle, on to removing rod caps to pop out pistons.
only took pics removing one. All are the same...



didn't get a pic but with your rubber mallet, hit rod cap on both ends to loosen.
I use a flat head screwdriver to get in between cap n rod to seperate.



then rod cap easily comes off.
Note: Do not mix your rod caps.
As they come off, put rod cap back on piston rod the same way.



With the butt end of your rubber mallet, slightly tap piston rods down cylinder..



and here is the piston out of the cylinder taking it out carefully!
(again, put your rod caps back on the same way they came off)

I got a new head and block gasket seal kit yesterday.

And a buddy is going to donate new main bearings, new rod bearings, new piston rings and a new oil pump!
