I was thinking about getting a 99+ 2 dr but perhaps I should scratch that idea.

Maybe ted boroski would have hooked up a remain job on the head. JJC might have rebuilt it for you for cheap as well. Talk to Chris Bene; he's a good guy.

When you pull the head could you take a pic of the top of the block? Also could you measure how thick the cylinder walls are? I'm wondering how much meat there is to play with if I wanted to to a big bore mod. The Aerio gets a 2.3 which is just a big bore version of the 2.0 which would be nice to have.

Thanks for the pics, they're great I was wondering if you get a chance if you might also be able to measure the intake and exhaust valve diameters for me? Nobody seems to have much detail or pics of these in engines internally so any opportunity to learn a bit more shouldn't be wasted.

Just to add to my earlier requests of you in my seemingly never ending search for details on these engines if you get the chance could you take pics of the inlet and exhaust ports and if possible with the gaskets on too just to see how well they match up and what the port is like. I 'm wondering if there will be much to be gained by doing a little port and polish. I'd still like to know the valve sizes and how much meat there is to work with for a bigger bore

Thanks,
CJ

If you plan on keeping your Tracker, the best books I purchased look like this:

About $45 on eBay including shipping. Incredible detail, about 600 pages each, includes detailed installation and removal instructions as well as detailed Diagnostic codes (DTCs).
Example eBay item number 190098848425
I haven't looked at the crank pulley, but on a Honda Civic Si, my son used a Snap-on large hex crank socket tool that keeps the crank from turning, by letting the handle rest on a frame component and then applying a 36 inch breaker bar to get the crank bolt loose. The tool is in Chicago now with him. We figured about 800-900 ft lbs must have been used to tighten it and that coincidentally is the upper limit on some of the best impact wrenches around. We borrowed a high-end Snap-On impact and our home air compressor didn't have the air flow to adequately power it. If you can't get it loose, you might roll it or tow it to a professional shop where they have a huge air compressor with sufficient air flow and high-end impact wrenches and let them loosen it for a fee. Hope this helps. Will H.

Must be senseless to fear breaking the head off this bolt then, huh? LOL!

Are you sure that 30inch pipe is well enough galvanised? It looks like it could do with some sandblasting before it goes in the galv. trough. Hope that doesn´t hold you back.......

Wot no smileys?

That pipe is an old, old, old one that sat under the house in the crawlspace just waiting for this day.
