Episode Notes

This is the 63rd episode (S05E01) and the season 5 premiere! We’ve got 12 exciting new episodes coming your way!

In this episode, Chris digs up an old junk yard Chevy 350 small block engine and tears it down, part-by-part, showing you how easy it is, and which tools to use. In this multi-part series, we’re rebuilding our Chevy 350 and showing you each step of the way from tear-down, to machining, and the entire rebuild.

This episode also has our regular segments, Partz and Letterz. In “Partz”, Chris talks about the budget mechanics tool set from Craftsman (which he also recommends in the upcoming Sears holiday catalog), the all-new BedStep2 from AMP Research which mounts on the side of the bed of your truck, and the RPM300 high performance racing fuel filter and water separator from FST Performance.


1:30 We are aware that this is not a 69 Chevy pickup. It is a 73+ Chevy/GMC. We were mis-informed.


This episode features an original Motorz theme song by Jeremy Pritchard.
