We LOVE the Hagerty Redline Rebuild movies and we particularly love the truth that they don’t draw back type displaying all the main points that encompass the seemingly magical engine teardown and reassembly movies.

Nicely, that new engine arrived and the disassembly course of started…with a hammer.
Fortunately whereas this one had ridge within the cylinders, it didn’t have a number of cracks or different main flaws like the opposite engine did. If they’d proceeded with the unique piece it might have been just like the outdated great-grandfather’s hammer joke. “Sure, that is my nice grandfather’s hammer.

It’s not simply Ford and Chevy small block stuff (which there’s no drawback with) however it’s enjoyable to see the center of engine that you’ve got by no means been that deep into earlier than.
