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.

305 Chevy running on Engine Stand - Test Run
Finally got home built portable engine stand up and running. Stock 78 305.
Should be putting in next week, big ol' comp cam and double hump heads to
see if i can spin a bearing.
Disassembling the 305 Chevy
I pulled my old 305 from the 1985 Caprice apart this fall. We got to this
point, and haven't bothered to re visit the project, since my new truck has
been taking up all of my time.
Replacing valve stem seals in 305 H.O. small block chevy from 1986 Monte Carlo SS
I'm putting the original 305HO back in the Monte after taking the ZZ3 out
for my Iroc project. This is mainly to make the car mobile but it may end
up tagged with this engine for a while. Previous owner reported that this
305 has over 100k miles on it and has been out of the car since 1997. He
said it smoked during startup and sure enough the valve stem seals were
worn out. Hopefully this will fix the issue.
1986 Chevy 305 V8 PARTIAL ENGINE OVERHAUL
***I realize I didn't need to torque the timing cover bolts down, I just
did it for the vid, also the start up at the end of the vid was NOT the
first start up.*** This is a 1986 Chevy C10. We only did a partial
overhaul, just a new cam, lifters, water pump, timing chain, gears, a new
gas tank and different 4-barrel carb was also installed, and just some
other smaller parts. Thanks for watching and please subscribe
305 Chevy running on engine stand - test run - pt3
Finally got the comp extreme 4x4 cam put in. Also put in gear drive. The
gear drive was a cheap pro comp unit, I checked it againest the stock set
and 2 double rollers and the timing mark were off. They had the number 1
piston already headed down the tube and the cam still retarded about a
degree. And that was with the 5 degree advanced key. It was almost zero, so
I ran it. Did not like whatso ever. Seem to have real bad harmonics, just
ran real bad. So I put the new double roller on and rolled with it. Plus I
added a 650 double pumper, in place of the 600 vac secondary. And added two
spacers. Plus I did a re-curve kit on the distributor. So all in all, Stock
305 2 brl maxed out at 5950 rpm went to a 650 Double Pumper Comp Cam Double
hump heads, double roller timing chain and now maxes out at 6950 rpm. Dont
know anything else to do with it but sell it. All comments welcome.
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
