Episode Notes

The long-awaited finale to our 5-episode series showing you how to rebuild a Chevy small block engine is here! With the teardownmachine shopbottom end rebuild, and top end rebuild episodes complete, there’s just one thing left to do–finish it! In this episode Chris shows you how to put together all the remaining pieces from Trans-Dapt, Holley, and PerformanceParts.com.

Note: There’s been a lot of confusion and questions about the Demon brand. We talked with Holley and they informed us that Holley’s parent company purchased Demon out of bankruptcy, but they are being ran as separate brands.

This episode features Olivia Korte as our Motorz Girl and also has our regular segments, Partz and Letterz. In “Partz”, Chris talks about the new Craftsman Figure 8 wrench, honing tools from BRM, suspension products from Stiffler’s, and sound deadening material from HushMat.

As always, be sure to stick around to watch our out-takes at the very end!

    Can’t find those studs and nuts on the website help

  2. gabigowriel Says:

    what’s the price for one of these engines NEW and could it be mounted to a 1996 range rover P38A?

  3. Dave Foley Says:

    Did you use the engine yet if so which episode, I would like to see.

  4. redin575 Says:

    Beautiful, but a minor point is I would have filled the oil filter with oil before installing. The last thing you want on a newly rebuilt engine is oil starvation.

  5. wgoldenny Says:

    I have never seen the dist connectors to the right side? Hun something new

  6. sokodad Says:

    I like the Demon carbs. Would anybody other than a housewife use that cheezy wrench he was advertising?

  7. Erik Bush Says:

    Kinda glossed over the whole valve adjustment thing. That was what I needed to know most.

  8. xxRamD3yruxx Says:

    I like this show but after watching the bloopers, the show could be a lot more fun if you left that stuff in instead of being so scripted.

  9. Mapple Cat Says:

    We have custom built oil pressurizers that pressurize the motor without turning it over.

  10. drumingmachine Says:

    Nice vid but the sears guy at 18.35 looks like he’s being held at gunpoint and told to read hahaa!

  11. Moon Hitsearth Says:

    Olivia would make a great Wonder Woman, don’t you think?

  12. SourDjay Says:

    Is a chevy 1974 350 SBC engine the same as this ?

  13. Ironheart Fabrication Says:

    What did you do to prevent cam walk? No button or retainer noted.

  14. Der Eggad Says:

    Wow, these engines are so easy. I’m 15, and after watching your videos and one other video, I kinda know how to build a Chevy Smallblock. I don’t say I can build one on my own, but I kinda get the idea how it works.Greetings from Germany.

  15. TheMostMan Says:

    Awesome job, Awesome tools

  16. Jay Stevens Says:

    the extra spacer will allow for more horse power….cooling down the gas

  17. Jay Stevens Says:

    hand tighten plus 1/8 rotation on the oil filter

  18. necro1143 Says:

    i was hoping they were going to show me how to replace the barrings, pistons, and replacing the valves in the head but it was too go to be true ill find another way of learning have such love for the chevy 350 and man you put a lot of HP to that car it starts to sound like a nascar its just amazing.

  19. alittledemon Says:

    Is there an episode where the engine is started for the first time?

  20. Braedon Kennelly Says:

    unless your building this engine for performance wouldn’t it be almost half the price to just get a new crate engine? Machining the block cost almost half or more of this whole project.

  21. cmen94 Says:

    so once you hit TDC on your #1 cylinder are you good to tighten all rocker bolts?

  22. Liam Viznaugh Says:

    Does anyone know the total cost of this build (without machining)

  23. Alex Paish Says:

    Why the fuck did he use corkThat shits one hell of a pain

  24. Ashton Williams Says:

    What is the advantage of using an extra capacity oil pan??? Awesome videos by the way.

  25. Dylan Howard Says:

    Why didn’t you paint the heads since they’re cast iron?
