How To Build a Chevy 383 Stroker - Part 1: Block & Crank
This is a new multi part series on how to assemble a small block Chevy 383 stroker motor (actually it is an internal combustion engine - "motors" are electric - but I digress LOL).
MOST of the assembly applies to any small block engine. I have divided up the assembly procedure into many parts so you can skip to the specific part you are looking for, i.e: crank, camshaft, timing chain or how to adjust rockers.
This whole series was shot by myself with my iPhone so presenting, filming and assembling could all be done smoother but "ir-regardless" I hope it helps.
Thank you. Shannon http://www.corvettesandcustoms.org
Dyno pull of my 318 stroker (390) Dyno pull of my 318 with a 4" stroker kit, bringing the displacement to 390 cubic inches. It's a very simple and mild street engine combo, consisting of 9.3:1 compression, a mild hydraulic cam, and bowl ported but otherwise stock iron magnum truck heads. It made 367 HP @ 5,300 rpm, and 407 foot pounds of torque @ 4,100 rpm. This engine is going in my 1989 Jeep Wrangler. Special thanks to Performance Only in Delray Beach, FL for the excellent machine work, building of the engine and tuning. Thanks to Eddie "Elvis" Miller at The Engine Works for working the Dyno and providing tuning assistance.
Mopar 426 small block stroker on test stand
Freshly built 360 small block Mopar stroked to 426 cubes on engine break-in stand. This is after cam break-in with mufflers and oil change/valve lash. Pump gas engine going in Original paint 78 Lil Red Express truck. Should be strong!
Redneck Wood Car Rotisserie
This is a device that I created (though I stole the general idea from another guy on the internet) to flip the car that I am restoring on it's side so that I could sandblast and paint the bottom. It worked perfectly. My wife was manning the winch control.
There were safety features in-place during the lifting process and while doing the work which are not shown in the video. Please use extreme caution if attempting a similar endeavor.
