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.
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.

Should be putting in next week, big ol' comp cam and double hump heads to
see if i can spin a bearing.
