Building a 5MgTe... W.I.P.

Post by Graffitipanda on Tue May 21, 2013 12:53 am

So I will be building a 5mgTe soon and figured I would start by reserving my spot here where I will try and post updates and step by steps of what how and why I'm doing a 5mgte.

I am sure you will love it there is nothing like a high compression turbo engine. Be prepared to spend plenty of time tuning it.

I'm rebuilding a 1989 Cressida 7mge (blown head gasket), all machine work is complete (head & block), crank just needed polishing and can use standard bearings.  Will post photos if any body is interested.

because of the tight tolerances specified in manual I broke down a bought a 2-3" micrometer that reads in ten thousandths as well a feeler gauge that reads in ten thousandths as well.

Can't use a feeler on the crank, need plastigauge or something similar.

Actually, the feeler gauge is used to check the clearance on the oil pump drive shaft.

Although plastigauge is shown in the tech manual and will get you in the ballpark clearance wise, nothing beats a good set of micrometers.
