22 re Engine rebuild questions
« on: Mar 15, 2005, 08:06:38 AM »
I am rebuilding a Engine for a 85 totota 22re   I an curious if anyone has pros and cons about the Dual row timing chain versus the standard one Lc engineering has a kit for 399.00 . Which year if any had a stock dual row chain? Also looking for recommendations  for a Machine shop Fresno area for Head and Block rebuild .Thanks Lynn

Pros of a double roller: Will outlast a single roller more than 2:1.

Cons of a double rooler: heavier rotating mass.

I'm not sure about the year, Gotta wait for Marlin, Glen, or Kyle to get in here, they should know, but I think its only 79-80 20Rs, and then some other later models ?

About a machine shop, try Clovis Machine in downtown Clovis. Call them up and ask for Andy. Tell him BigMike from Marlin Crawler sent ya :thumbs:

The double row chains came on all 20r's and early 22R's ( 81 to late 82 or early 83). They are definatley better , but the only way to put one on your '85 22re is to buy the kit from LC Eng. From my experience with the single row chains , the problem is with the guides not the chain itself. Single rows came with plastic guides that are notorius for breaking , where the duoble rows had metal backed guides.

If it where mine I'd save my $$ and just keep the single row and buy a set of metal backed guides for the single row. I think you can buy them from engnbldr.com . On the other hand if you just have $400 to blow then the LC kit would be great , but I'm just a poor machinist from Alabama so I have to be a tight wad. My  :twocents:

1st we need to determin if you have the laser block or regular/early block,  oh wait you said RE  :smack:
yes all 20R's and 22R's  80-82 had double row,    you can get a 20R chain kit and take 1 link out , ive not done that but im positive thats all LCEng does :headscratch:  but like bluetoy said the guides are the problem,   if you go dual chain you need the timing cover from a 84 or older 22R or from a 20 and have it cut down

but i think running the stock chain and metal guides is probably best for the laser block
and :pokinit: loads cheaper

Last Summer I had my 22R rebuilt.  My shop swapped in a Dual Row.  Here it is:

Finally decided to go to LCEngineering  Ordered new head larger stainless valves their EFI Camshaft and the double row timing Chain Kit
There goes a quick $ 1400.00  Now I just need to get the block checked and bored if necessary and the crank turned.

you can have your crank custom turned for a little more stroke but at a $$    you can get KeithBlack Hyper pistons from BeckRacing http://www.beckracing.com/index.html  i got mine 22R .060 oversize for $85
