How to Assemble a Chevy Engine Part 1
This video will show you how to assemble a Chevy engine (or any engine)
starting from the basic block. It goes through installing the crankshaft,
checking for the right clearences using plastic gage, installing the rings
on the pistons, installling the piston in the block, checking the rod
bearing clearence, torquing all the bolts to the collect specifications,
installing the rear main seal, and demonstrating how the motor works from
the bottom view and top view.
1951 Chevrolet Pickup 216 Freed up from being seized up part 1
This is a 216 complete rolling chassie that I got from a friend of mine. It
was a running motor and it sat for a while with the cab and bed off of it
outside. Im guessing it rained inside through the valve cover or just
moisture? Anyway it seized up tight! I put transmission fluid down all of
the cylinders and let it sit for about 4 months. I finally got back to it
and tried to get it to move again from the front of the engine and couldn't
get it to move. So I took the dust cover off from the fly wheel and with a
little help with a pry bar, I got it to move a little and a little more
until it was turning over on its on. In the process it bent two pushrods,
where two of the intake valves were stuck also. So here is the process I
did of removing the rocker arm assembly and cleaning and reinstalling the
1948 Chevy Fleetmaster barn find, rat rod
Nice old 1948 Chevrolet we found in an old barn in hollywood FL. This car
is all original except the 216 has been replaced with a 235. Almost the
same engine the 216 has poured bearings, and the 235 has inserts. Runs and
drives nice but needs a master cylinder. If any one has one let me know.
Also need to find where they put the vin#
