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 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!

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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.
