Tearing Down an Original Chevy 283 (in One Minute)
http://www.horsepowermonster.com -- A full engine teardown is boring, but now when it's all squeezed into a minute! This video is mostly just for fun. The engine is a 283 out of a '57 Chevy, and I think it will eventually make a great little motor for a roadster. The car had been sitting in a field for nearly 20 years, so I knew it would be in rough shape, but the squirrel's nest in the lifter valley was a bit of a surprise--don't blink or you'll miss it. If you are interested in 283s in general, make sure to check out the additional information in my website at the link below.

57 Chevy 2DHT 283 engine first start-up
First start-up of 57 Chevy 2DHT 283 engine. Originally bought, with 2-speed Powerglide, in the late 80s out of a 56 Chevy that had recently been imported to Australia. The 'greaseball' was re-built by Bruce, completed and detailed by Des, and set-up for first start-up by Trevor (Frosty) for owner John (also Frosty). Big thanks to all who contributed. The car is a Bel Air Sports Coupe (2-door hard top) being restored as a right-hand drive vehicle to factory specifications with Power Pack optioned motor -- which includes Carter 4-barrel carburetor, dual Exhaust and high performance heads.
