Basic Engine Building DVD - Behind the Scenes: Small Block Ford 351 Windsor
We gonna show you some never before seen footage from the filthy Ford 351W
we pulled out of a boat. BoxWrench Director Brent Bye recaps the story of
discovering the engines problem and what ensued as the tear down process
Basically salt water was leaking into a cylinder head thru some hidden
steel water plugs that only these small block 351 W motors have. Being a
marine engine they needed to be replaced with rust proof brass plugs. After
running for 5 years the water eroded holes straight thru them. Water
pressurized from the water pump was squirting into the cylinder heads right
onto the rocker arms, valves and valve springs, ultimately all the way down
to the oil pan and crankcase. It all made out for a surprising tear down.
This particular Ford 351 Windsor marine motor was fully rebuild on camera
in the "Basic Engine Building" DVD. Even a catastrophic blown engine like
this can be rebuilt with the proper knowledge and tools. The BoxWrench
Series is designed to give you that knowledge and let you have fun with it.

Summer's car "rebuild".
Summer's 16th birthday present, 78 Mustang II Coupe.
She likes old cars, we didn't want anything with HP as a first car, plus
not a "big" car either with C pillar blind spot. That little Mustang was about the only choice to
find something dirt cheap, fixable and looks classic.
Nothing too fancy in the refreshing, this car will end up on a highschool
Rebuild the little 2.3L engine, great on gas, 28-30 MPG on the highway.

Is It Numbers Matching? - Cougar by the Numbers
In this video we delve into the complex topic of decoding tags, date codes,
and other numbers to check if your classic Ford / Mercury is "numbers
matching," using Don's newly acquired '69 Mercury Cougar XR7 428 Cobra Jet
convertible as an example. While we haven't covered the subject 100% in
this video (to keep it concise) we think this covers most of the major
components and gives you the knowledge you need to figure out what your
numbers mean. As mentioned in the video, we highly recommend Marti Auto
Works, especially his Tagbook, which made this video possible. Visit him
at http://www.martiauto.com , and for everything Cougar, visit us at

Honda Civic Rebirth
My 1991 Honda Civic hatchback rebuild. The car was in really bad shape and
desperately needed TLC, so I went ahead and restored her from scratch with
the help of a few buddies who run a shop. The whole process took about 9
months, hence 'The Rebirth' title which seems to go along well like it's a
new born baby.
The motor is B16A with: CTR pistons, full Omni valvetrain, CAT cams, ITR
IM, Mild P&P head, H22A injectors, OBD1 converted, and stock B16A header.
The Exhaust is Apexi WS2. The actual
numbers at the dynapack are pretty embarrassing (I was just trying to get
her to run efficiently for the emissions test, which she passed no
problem). I have no idea what this motor is capable of. I'll post more
vids once she's fully tuned. Props to Nick at Teknotik for the tuning.
*Parts alone for this project costed about $5K to 6K. I did the labor with
the help of my buddies and bodywork was done by an affiliate. So I spent
roughly $10K in total. I plan to keep this car forever so I don't see 10K
as much money at all.
