Kevin's 1977 Chevy Silverado Big Block 454 w/ TH400 trans
This is the truck I've been working on for about three years. The frame and
axles are from a 1985 GMC Sierra 3/4 ton 4x4 with a 350 engine and a TH400
transmission. My grandpa purchased a 1977 Chevy Silverado Camper Special
brand new back in 1977. That truck had a 454 big block engine and a TH400
transmission in it. My goal is to make the '85 GMC look like a 4x4 version
of my grandpa's truck -- with a plethora other modifications/
customizations. I have pictures of the project posted on webshots:
I recently posted this same video on a different website that doesn't
destroy the quality of the file. Check it out here:

454 Chevy Big Block Teardown and Rebuild.
This is my bud Marc's BB 454 that had been sitting for a LONG time. It's
had the heads off, and moisture got to the bottom end. We tore it down,
cleaned everything up and bored the block. New rings, and a few other
things to be installed, as well as a clean up of the cam shaft lobes and
lifters. Should be ready to fire in a couple weeks. I'll post a vid of it
running when it's done!
Engine rebuild part 1
This series is available on DVD Here is the link
We are rebuilding a GM 350 5.7 engine. Now in this particular case we
are also going to upgrade the engine to a 383 6.0 This is called
building a "stroker" motor. In other words we are increasing the "stroke"
of the engine which increased the torq & horsepower.
If you are able & wanting to rebuild an engine, this video should give you
a good overview of what to do. If you are having someone else build an
engine for you, you will be able to see what's involved in the process
