9781932494723: How to Rebuild Any Automotive Engine (SA-Design) (Performance How-To)

There comes a time in every automobile's life when the engine just doesn't perform as it should anymore. It may be burning oil, it may be leaking, the compression may be so low that it only starts on cold days, or maybe it just isn't very efficient anymore. When all of this happens, you have to decide whether to just dump the car and replace it, or add some new life to your old car by rebuilding the engine.
Rebuilding the engine in any used car, much less a classic, seems like a much more attractive option when you can save a lot of money by doing it yourself. Sometimes the savings are the difference between keeping your car or letting it go. If you want to keep you car running strong and lasting for years, this is the book for you.
A part of CarTech's Workbench Series, How to Rebuild Any Automotive Engine covers the basics of any engine rebuild in over 400 color photos of step-by-step instruction. Subjects covered include preparation and tool requirements, engine removal, engine disassembly, machine work and clean-up, short-block assembly, final engine assembly, installation, start-up, and break in. Also visited are the options of purchasing crate engines, remanufactured engines, and performance upgrades. This book applies to all cars on the road that feature an internal combustion engine. Spend a little on this book and save hundreds down the road.

Review:

We can see a lot of GRM readers benefiting from the information in this guide. ---Grassroots Motorsports, December 2008

Well worth the price. ---Hemmings Classic Car, reviewed by Richard Lentinello, December 2008

For anyone who is not a master mechanic, but is interested in saving money as well as restoring new-car power to his old car, this book is an investment as valuable as a set of quality sockets and a torch wrench. ---Cars & Parts, reviewed by Jim Hinckley, February 2009
