How to Assemble a Chevy Engine Part 1
This video will show you how to assemble a Chevy engine (or any engine)
starting from the basic block. It goes through installing the crankshaft,
checking for the right clearences using plastic gage, installing the rings
on the pistons, installling the piston in the block, checking the rod
bearing clearence, torquing all the bolts to the collect specifications,
installing the rear main seal, and demonstrating how the motor works from
the bottom view and top view.

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.
