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. PS - For those of you who who did NOT get the joke and are taking the "engine" and "motor" thing WAYYY too seriously, here are a couple instructional aides to help you figure out why you have no sense of humor.... also I would never use "ir-regardless" in proper English. Thank you. Shannon
