I'm trying to find the step by step rebuild with photos I saw here a couple of months ago. I don't see a search mode here so can someone hook me up with a link please? I have a 92 1.0 G10 engine. Thank you.

I am now putting my rebuild back together. Problem is my thrust bearings for the crank have two manufactured grooves on one side of each bearing. I can't remember if they go out or in. Any help please? Thanks.

The grooves face toward the crank faces. Away from the block.

Thank you. I've got another one. I have what looks like a brass check valve with a small slot that looks like for a screw driver to fit into. It came out of the top of the block where the head meets. It fell out of a small hole. I saw this in my last engine when I replaced the head. Can someone tell me what this is and shouldn't it be secured in the hole? Thanks a bunch guys.

Oil check valve and yes, you want it in the engine.

It just sits in it's hole. When the head is back on it can't go anywhere, but when the head is off it likes to take a walk down the street, explore new options, and generally rethink it's life.

I have another question. I am just about done rebuilding top and bottom and would like to know what the break in process is? Such as how long before changing the oil and driving limitations. Thanks again guys.

I go about 20 miles on the first oil and am gentle with it, then change to 5-30 and drive it normal to fairly hard for 1000 miles. Then goto a synthetic and drive normal and change out every 5000. On this however opinions are like butt holes everyones got one.

I installed the new oil pump, crankshaft seal and water pump with just the gasket. Should I have used sealant?

The only thing agreed on, is change the oil. Put something like 100-500 miles on it, and give it a change.
