Basic Engine Building - Volume 1

View a 30 second Promotional piece of the video.

'Basic Engine Building' is like no other instructional video ever created. This DVD will teach any enthusiast or mechanic of any skill level how to rebuild almost any type of engine by going through every step of the rebuild process. Every engine overhauling tool, theory, method and procedure related to basic engine building and engine function is covered in detail.

This video can be used to learn how to work on almost any type of internal combustion engine including V8, V6, Straight 8, in-line 6 and even 4 cylinder engines.

This DVD follows the same 8 section formula as the previously available '8-Point Rebuild' to explain a complete teardown and rebuild of an engine.

An extra hour of video footage was added that puts the total run time to over 3 1/2 hours (not including the hours you could spend learning in the Reference Menus). There are dozens more computer animations and graphical explanations of complex engine building techniques. A fully redesigned graphic interface and completely re-written and narrated by three different personalities. This simply is the best automotive instructional video ever produced!

You'll be shown every tool and how to use them. You'll be taken through every process necessary to complete an engine rebuild. Nothing is left unexplained. With the help of this DVD, you can complete an entire rebuild or use it for a lifetime of reference to automotive building and repair.

  • Fully Interactive, 8 Menus with 64 sub menus

    Simply the Best
      This is by far the best instructional video I have ever seen. I have never seen or read any instructional material that could give so much useful advice on a topic while still keeping it applicable to many situations. This video hits on all cylinders, pun intended. Easily the best money I have spent in a while.
