wolfy.

sir, you did a fine job at listing the teardown on here. my question to you is do you plan on putting a "rebuild" thread up??

getting everything back together is kinda reverse i know but there are little things like adjusting valves and whatnot that a lot of us might know about.

reguardless. your tear-down segment was first clasds.

Thanks, Chevy...I didn't take the valves out - I wasn't redoing a proper rebuild in the sense of new camshaft, pistons, bearing, etc...I WISH I could've done that, but don't have anyone here to help me with that part of it. I was only tearing it down to change the head and LIM gaskets due to the Dexcool pudding that was in there, and to try to fix some stripped rocker arms holes...

Unfortunately, I now may be looking at a spun bearing, I'm not sure and can't tell.  I've got a loud rapping that seems to quiet down at idle, but is quite loud under throttle and lessens a bit when in gear....it could be a rod bearing, could be a main bearing, could be yet another loose rocker arm, could be the transmission...I don't really know..

I do have a few pics of the old head and the remanufactured one before I put it on, but I didn't get the impression anyone was paying any attention to the thread, so I didn't put them up..
If you have any questions, feel free to ask here, or PM me..I'll be glad to help if I can..

BTW, since the 3.4L V6 was used on tons of GM/Chevy/Buick/Pontiac cars, this teardown would be the same for those - if you or anyone frequents other forums where someone might get some help from this thread, point them this way..

Mike, I see you have gone public with the not so great news. What have you decided to do about the "new" condition (noise)? Do you think you might do a small 3.4l bottom end inspection posting?  I think this would be a great post for the others to see if you are willing to drop the oil pan for inspection.  You may find this procedure a little more difficult and awkward and it will take a dedication and patience. This is no different than my swap teks original engine as we previously discussed amongst ourselves off this forum. If I can help again in anyway as always please feel free to ask and I will do what I can.
