Hoobz904. How aluminium forged pistons are made. Narrated using satire.
I have a broken wrist at the moment and was looking for something to do so
I doctored up this short, partially tongue in cheek, video showing how
aluminium forged pistons are made just for a bit of fun. The video footage
is not mine but the sexy voice is. It has many remarks that are purely
satire. This was never meant to be serious. The footage is from the show
'How it's made'. It's a top show.
5 Horsepower Briggs Restoration Project and How to unseize pistons and valves
May be a while on the rest, just hang in there, I will eventually work on
this again, its just going to take alot of money to get it bored out and
sleeved, new valves, new piston/rings, new rod, everything! i found an old
briggs and stratton engine block with a thrown rod, seized piston and
valves. In this video i unseize the piston and valves, and remove them. And
begin the clean up process. Cylinder might have to bored. Also note, i said
on the video that i may need a new piston because of the stuck rings, not
necessarily true, because the rings should come off with no problem. Unless
the piston is scored or worn, it shouldn't need replaced. Thanks for
watching, and please subscribe!
