The small-block Chevrolet is easily the most popular V-8 engine ever built. It was introduced in 1955, and remained in production until the mid 1990s. Of course, whether restoring or modifying, the time comes when your small-block Chevy needs rebuilding.
This updated version is a quality, step-by-step workbench book that shows you how to rebuild a street or racing small-block Chevy in your own garage. Detailed sections show how to disassemble a used engine, inspect for signs of damage, select replacement parts, buy machine work, check critical component fit and more! Performance mods and upgrades are discussed along the way, so the book meets the needs of all enthusiasts, from restorers to hot rodders.
