1993 Toyota Camry Repair Question
93 Camry in-frame piston ring replacement
My question is "is this wise on an engine this old?" Can it be done or is there something that would prevent this from being done in frame? The car fits our needs perfectly, so I hate to see it be scrapped.
Thanks in advance.
There is nothing really hard about doing a re ring in situ. You have mentioned all that needed to be done in your post, although do use a good repair manual as a definitive guide. I would have the head checked while it is off, even if only to replace the valve stem seals. You should measure the bore diameters and the pistons to make sure that it will accept std rings, check the oil pump as well while your in there. Don't skimp on the little things as you might as well do a through job as possible while you have it down. But remember that you are only doing a part rebuild, so keep that in mind with your expectations of the end result.
