Overview

The big-block Chevrolet engine is legendary. Making its debut in Chevrolet production cars in earnest in 1965, it quickly became one of the most respected and feared performance engines on the street. Even the two-barrel station wagon and pickup-truck engines are sought after today for swaps and performance builds. This, combined with an active crate-motor program by General Motors with displacements of up to 572 cubic inches, makes big-block Chevy engines the kings of the street.
There comes a time in every engine's life when the engine just doesn't perform as it should anymore. It even happens to legendary engines like the big-block Chevrolet. Rebuilding the engine in any used car, much less a classic Chevy, seems like a much more attractive option when you can save a lot of money by doing it yourself.
How to Rebuild the Big-Block Chevrolet covers the best techniques for rebuilding classic Chevy big blocks with more than 450 color photos and step-by-step instruction. Subjects covered include the history of the big-block Chevy, preparation and tool requirements, engine removal and teardown, first inspection, parts, machine work and clean-up, final engine assembly, and start-up. This Workbench Series book is essential not only for enthusiasts looking to rebuild their big-block Chevy, but as a guide for building high-performance engines as well. The photos in this edition are black and white.
