Default DIY: Block Guard Install D-series

here are some pics of the BG finally installed! (labor provided by: My buddy)

Brief blockguard how to:
Install time 10 min.
skill level: B
Tools: Rubber mallet/ dead blow, Dowel pin

Set the guard evenly/square onto the block, gently press it down by hand to get a rough idea of fitment....


USING A RUBBER MALLET (RUBBER DEADBLOW)gently begin to tap it in from the center out (cyl. 2, 3, 1, 4) until it lays flush with the block


If you are not skilled I don't advise this part w/ the following tools you may see.....( unskilled pls. prepare: wire hanger [if you go too far], a dowel pin larger than cooling wholes, and a priest w/ some holy water!!)

In the same fashion begin to tap the guard gently down w/ dowel (in my case Philips screw driver) until desired depth is reached 1.5mm - 2mm. must be either or depth, even all the way around, not 1.5 here & 2 there!






FINISHED PROD.
FINALLY REMOVE ALL DEBRIS -- Most cylinders require re-honing

just a quick fyi, not bashing you btw.. block guards are dangerous man,i would never ever recommend one to ANYONE. they do not allow the cylinders to flex like they should. and before you jump to conclusions i have made numerous STOCK BLOCK single cams put down 400hp in daily driven form and 700+hp in track form and run hundreds of 10 and 11 second runs at bandimere.. and that at a elevation around 6000 feet....

EDIT* i know this is a write up, this is just info for anyone thinking about using a block guard.

DART blocks have Replaceable ductile iron dry sleeves... not block guards.

i think it really depends on your application, i've done a little research myself on these and asked around, i know with Hondaworks out in Charlotte they run a block gaurd on their b20 ls/vtec and the owner himself told me that he almost gets twice the number of races out of his motor when using a block guard. yes they can be dangerous, but theres always exceptions to every case

No offense taking here folks, this is a personal decision, and a DIY for that. Up to you! Thanks for the info. There have been success and failure stories behind a blockgaurd, this is just general info.

The only thing that I ever heard negative about them is they "egg shape" the cylinder. Rehoning I guess would help that as it usually is very very minor.
