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. http://in.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20061118030153AAa0H3F http://www.ask.com/question/what-is-the-difference-between-a-motor-and-an-engine Thank you.

"WARNING" DON'T- bolt on "New in the Box" heads on your motor without. 1.0
www.headbytes.com 615-212-7168 This is one of MANY of the sets of heads through the years of doing heads. I cannot tell you enough that you DON'T bolt on a new set of heads that are out of the box that the company claims "ready to bolt on"!!! I know that many of you out there are going to say "that is ridicules, why would I buy a new set of heads to take to a machine shop to have them tore back down and possibly a valve job and guide work done? The reason is simple and can be explained in TWO WORDS....MASS PRODUCTION!!! All of the companies are guilty from AFR to World Products and all the letters in-between (Brodix, Dart, Indy, Trick Flow, GM) I have seen the following during the course of my 24 years of doing these things, and are as follows: 1. Seen daylight through the valves using a flashlight at the entrance of the port pointing to the valve seat 2. Seen the heads WARPED as much as .015 on the deck surface requiring the heads to be surfaced (GM was real bad about this with the Vortec 906 and 062 heads) 3. Uneven Valve guide clearances, of inconsistent measurements of Taper from top to bottom of the valve guides. This can cause Valves to stick, or to Smoke excessively. Remember, the life of the Valve Job is the straightness and Taper of the valve guide! 4. THE VALVE JOB IS 85% OF THE TIME "OUT OF ROUND" AND OUT OF CONCENTRIC AS MUCH AS .006, CAUSING LEAKAGE AND BACKDRAFT PRESSURES RESULTING IN MAJOR horsepower LOSSES!!!! These are just a FEW of the major reasons to have the heads ordered BARE, order the parts on your own to assure you don't get CHINA VALVES, along with CHINA SPRINGS, CHINA Guides and Studs!!! Remember, if the difference between an assembled set and bare set is just $150.00 to $200.00 then you got China parts all through the head (I have actually seen China writing on guide plates and marks of China on Studs and Valves....... This is part 1 of "WHY you don't put new heads on your engine without first going through the heads by taking them to a well versed and good reputable shop before putting them on your engine.
