Starting an old 283 chevy engine part 1
My son rebuilt this engine in highschool about 15 years ago. We put this in
a 67 chev pickup and ran it till the truck rusted away. I junked the truck
out and saved the engine. It was sitting in my shed in my way for about 5
years now so I decided to set it outside. So I'm starting it up before I
tarp it up for now. Its got about 35,000 miles on it since the rebuild. It
has a some what of a high lift cam in, but I don't remember what he put in

After a not-so-long-and-cold winter the project moves ahead. The new
pistons, rings and rod bearings are installed and checked by Katharine and
her dad, while rebuilding the 283 small block for their 1959 Corvette.
Tearing Down an Original Chevy 283 (in One Minute)
http://www.horsepowermonster.com -- A
full engine teardown is boring, but now when it's all squeezed into a
minute! This video is mostly just for fun. The engine is a 283 out of a '57
Chevy, and I think it will eventually make a great little motor for a
roadster. The car had been sitting in a field for nearly 20 years, so I
knew it would be in rough shape, but the squirrel's nest in the lifter
valley was a bit of a surprise--don't blink or you'll miss it.
