Technomadia's 8V71 Engine Rebuild - Disassembly (Part 1 of 2)
Photo montage of the disassembly of our 8V71 Detroit Diesel 2-stroke engine out of our 1961 GM 4106 bus conversion (named Zephyr). On June 15, 2013 we had a failure that caused overheating, and this is a big step of the diagnosis and intention to rebuild. All work done at Interstate PowerSystems in Billings, MT. Part 2 of this series (the reassembly) can be found at: http://youtu.be/pMX8qaKjzvM Follow the engine rebuild progress at our blog http://www.technomadia.com/rebuild .
