    1. I’m expecting to hear some knocking noises.
      All I have seen all the way through this series is pure hackery.
      There aren’t many competent shops out there anymore, the few that are would never have the camera crew in the shop getting in the way.

  1. I watch other channels showing slick engine assembly but “the master” has that old school touch I could watch all day.
    You da man Davin!!

  2. “Fantastic to have friends” is an understatement. Couldn’t count the number of times mechanic buddies of mine helped me out 😂

  3. Watching a master work and teach with a smile on his face even when things don’t go smoothly. I can’t think of a better way to spend a little time on labor day. Thanks for all the hard work from you and your team. God Bless and be safe

    1. I appreciate listening to Rammstein even though I don’t speak German. It’s ok to appreciate things without knowing the language used within them. 🙂

    1. Sure seems that way! We could spend all day rebuilding small-block Chevys with no issues… but where’s the fun in that? There are a million of those videos already on YouTube!

  4. I love old engine builds… Just think once upon a time engine builds used to be done in every corner shop in town. I grew up with that mentality and I miss it. It brought the community together at least the auto community at least.

  5. you should rename this build “we hit a small snag” lol

    i love that you’re breathing new life into this, these engines are so cool and unique .

    1. We all know that the cam was to tight and the cam is going to gall the bearings in about 45 seconds if not sooner it would be nice if you would address problems like that and show the solution you came up with instead of just skirting the problem and moving on as if everything is OK
