Mon garage: Guide de construction du moteur V8 (Moteur orange/rouge)

Ceci est un guide simple pour montrer comment construire un moteur V8, qui est l'orange/rouge trouvé dans les voitures Brat et Chad. You could build this engine from the catalog, or pull one from a car. If you want to tear one down, it will just be the steps in reverse.

1. All the parts you need

First of all you need to get all the parts you need together. I’;ve broken this down into sections:
Engine case parts
Engine internals
Carb Parts
Accessoires
Spark and Fuel

I have a format I am going to stick with. I have circled each part and I will also give a quantity such as (2) if there is more than one. If there is no quantity, assume you need only one.

1.a Engine case

These are the parts that make up what you see when you look at a engine, it’;s the exterior of the engine. Keep in mind the cylinder heads and cylinder head covers are directional! There is one of each for the left and right side.

From the top and left to right:
Red –; Oil pan
Pink –; Cylinder Head Cover (R)
Blue –; Cylinder Head (R)
Cyan –; Engine Block
Blue –; Cylinder Head (L)
Pink –; Cylinder Head Cover (L)
Lime green –; Head Gasket (2)
Orange –; Rockers (2)
Green –; Timing Cover

1.b Engine Internals

These are the important bits, this is all the stuff that actually makes up your engine.

Encore, from the top down and left to right.

Green –; Timing Chain
Red –; Crankshaft Sprocket (I put it in the wrong place, should be down by the crank)
Blue –; Camshaft
White –; Pistons (8)
Black –; Crankshaft Pulley
Yellow –; Harmonic Balancer
Pink –; Camshaft Sprocket
Green –; Crankshaft

1.c Carb Parts

These are the parts that make up the carbs. The carbs job is to mix the fuel with air, which allows the engine to ignite the fuel.

Top to bottom.

Blue –; Air Filter Lid
Pink –; Air Filter
Red –; Air Filter Housing
Green –; Carb

1.d Accessories

These are the parts that are considered ‘;accessories’; things like your alternator and water pump.

Top to bottom, left to right.

Yellow –; (ignore this, I included it with the engine internals section.) Harmonic Balancer (0)
Green –; Water pump
Cyan –; Engine Fan
Orange –; (ignore this, I included it with the engine internals section.) Crankshaft Pulley
Red –; Alternator Belt
Blue –; Oil Filter
Green –; Alternateur
Pink –; Thermostat
Dark Blue –; Starter (This actually goes on the transmission, not the engine)

1.e Spark and Fuel

This is what provides fuel and spark to the engine.

Top to bottom, left to right.

Green –; Spark Plug Wires
Blue –; Spark Plugs (8) ; You need one for each cylinder, totaling 8.
Cyan –; Ignition Coil
Green –; Distributor
Yellow –; Fuel Pump

2. Engine Block

Alors maintenant que nous avons toutes les pièces dont nous avons besoin pour le moteur, il est temps de commencer à les assembler!

Commencer avec, prendre le bloc moteur et le coller sur le support moteur.

Une fois sur le stand, vous voulez faire tourner le moteur pour pouvoir installer le vilebrequin dans le bas du moteur. Be sure to tighten all 10 bolts.

Une fois le vilebrequin en place, vous pouvez commencer à mettre le piston. There are 8 for this engine, et chaque piston a deux boulons. Je recommande de les faire un à la fois.

Une fois que tous les pistons sont installés, vous pouvez continuer et installer le carter d'huile. There are 5 bolts on each side, making a total of 10 bolts on the oil pan.

Now is the time for the camshaft. You need to rotate the engine so you can get to the top of it now, we’;re done with all the bottom end work. It can be confusing as to where it goes if you don’;t know engines well, so I’;ve included a photo of exactly where to hold it to install. There are no bolts to hold the camshaft on this engine.

Once that is done you can install the crankshaft sprocket (the small one) and the camshaft sprocket (the larger one) only the camshaft sprocket has a bolt.

Next is the timing chain. It just goes on without any tools or bolting, you need a pry tool to remove it though.

Now the timing cover, it goes on the front of the engine and . It’;s just 4 bolts on this engine.

Now the head gaskets! These are important. Like really important, don’;t forget them. No tools needed, and you will need to drop your wrench to grab them.

Now is time for the Cylinder Heads. You have a left and right one, but the process is the same for both. Just be sure you’;re putting the left one on the left side of the engine, and the right one on the right side. There are 5 bolts for each cylinder head, and they can be easy to miss.

Now is the time for the rockers. They go directly on top of the cylinder heads, each set of rockers has 5 bolts.

Next is the Cylinder Head Cover as the game calls it (normally called a valve cover) again there are 2, one for each side and they are directional. So one for the left side, one for the right.
5 bolts, 3 on the side 2 toward the center.

And that is it for the internals of the engine, now at this point you should have a very enginey looking engine. Next we will start working on fuel and spark!

3. Fuel and Spark

Now is the time for fuel and spark. This will be the fuel pump, ignition coil, distributor, and spark plugs.

First the spark plugs, if you don’;t have them in already.

Next is the distributor and the ignition coil. These go on the back of the engine, right above where the transmission goes.

Then the fuel pump. This goes on the frnt of the engine, right in front of the right exhaust.

After that is just the spark plug wires, which I put on once the engine is in the car.

4. Accessoires

This is the final part! And the easiest, but also the easiest to forget parts, so be attentive when doing this.

First comes the Harmonic Balancer. This goes on the front of the engine, right onto the end of the crankshaft. Only one bolt.

Now the crankshaft pulley, this bolts straight onto the harmonic balancer. It has 3 bolts.

Next is the water pump. It can be easy to miss the bolts on this engine, as they’;re kind of hidden. It has 4 bolts.

Next is the engine fan. This bolts on to the water pump. 4 bolts.

Then the alternator. 2 bolts, plus 1 main wire on the back once the engine is in the car.

You’;re now ready for the alternator belt. I didn’;t take a picture of that, but I have confidence in your ability to put the belt on. Not tools needed to put the belt on or to take it off.

Now for the final 3 parts. Première, the flywheel. 6 bolts.

Next is the clutch plate, no tools needed for this part and it just sits on the flywheel.

Finally is the clutch pressure plate. 6 bolts

Now you have a engine that is ready to put in a car, or to stare at longingly. Votre choix.
