Before beginning the engine installation – please review the following instructions:
STOP NOW and check your existing components!!
1. The intake manifold must be thoroughly cleaned and free of all debris before being installed on the engine. Debris such as old piston, piston ring, or valve material can be trapped in the intake, plenum, and EGR System. The debris can and will be pulled into the replacement engine causing the engine to fail. DO NOT GLASS BEAD, SAND BLAST, OR use anything that could get lodged in the intake.
2. Installer must diagnose, repair, and insure proper operation of engine related systems and subsystems. Failure to make repairs to these components may result in engine failure.
AFTER INSTALLING THE ENGINE
CHECK ENGINE FOR INTERFERENCE
Rotate the crankshaft by hand a minimum of FOUR complete revolutions before engaging the starter. Nuts, bolts, washers or other small parts may have been dropped into the intake manifold or intake ports and can severely damage replacement engine.
The oil pump on this engine must be primed and the entire oiling system must be purged of air before the drive belts are installed and the engine is started.
Engines equipped with adjustable rocker assemblies must be readjusted after engine “Run In”.
Oil cooler must be replaced!!!! Cooler cannot be cleaned and reused.
For any technical help during engine installation or after starting up please call 505 Performance Tech Support. All engine reported to be defective will be disassembled and thoroughly inspected.
Engine oil cooler must be replaced if you have one!!!
The tech department offers the following information concerning reuse of oil coolers.
Some vehicles are originally equipped with oil coolers which are part of the radiator assembly; others may have aftermarket cooler added to the oiling system.
Regardless of design the OIL COOLER must be replaced, or the replacement engine warranty will be void.
Small bearing and crankshaft material cannot be entirely removed by simply flushing the cooler. If this is attempted and the original cooler is REUSED it will contaminate the engine’s oiling system, resulting in multiple engine failures until cooler is replaced.
