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
Rap 24 hp semidiesel, third start attempt, the successful one.
More than two years since the last start attempt. Too many other projects
have had priority.
We used a couple of hours to get things running smoothly again and pumped
out more than 10 litres of rainwater from the crankcase but when we tried
to start, it went far better than expected :-)
The engine started running backwards and at time 3:00, I reduce the rpm and
give it a couple of manual fuel injections to change direction to forward.
Rolls-Royce Merlin Engine
Considered a British icon, the Merlin was one of the most successful
aircraft engines of the World War II era, and many variants were built by
Rolls-Royce in Derby, Crewe and Glasgow,as well as by Ford of Britain at
their Trafford Park factory, near Manchester. The Packard V-1650 was a
version of the Merlin built in the United States. Production ceased in 1950
after a total of almost 150,000 engines had been delivered, the later
variants being used for airliners and military transport aircraft.
The PV-12 first ran in 1933 and, after several modifications, the first
production variants were built in 1936. The first operational aircraft to
enter service using the Merlin were the Fairey Battle, Hawker Hurricane and
Supermarine Spitfire. More Merlins were made for the four-engined Avro
Lancaster heavy bomber than for any other aircraft; however, the engine is
most closely associated with the Spitfire, starting with the Spitfire's
maiden flight in 1936. A series of rapidly applied developments, brought
about by wartime needs, markedly improved the engine's performance and
Many ascribe the victory during the Battle of Britain to the Merlin powered
Royal Air Force (RAF). And later its use in the American P-51 Mustang.

383 Stroker 500HP+ rebuilt
a few days after everything was finished (old 383 Stroker with stock iron
heads)the engine blew up with a broken piston.I will post a video about
that later. Luckily the Engine-Block didn't suffer any damage and after
disassembly of the whole motor it was the perfect 4-Bolt base for a real
500+ HP 383 Stroker. This time I wanted serious horsepower!
So here we go, over 4.700$ in parts later...assembly is finished and right
now the motor waits for going back into the Truck. Still a lot of other
stuff to do at the Truck, but I think the Motor will be in the Truck
running, in about 4-5 Weeks.
