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.
