    You are truly a snake.!!……..I was ready to jack audio up to eleven, then you pulled the plug…..Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. What a beauty ( I'm talking about the motor here) and super build job. I could sit and look at this all day. Thanks for sharing, i think. Stay safe and keep up the good work. ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Surely that's not plumbers tape on the thread of the oil plugs @3:10, why are those oil plugs even there? Regards.

    Great engineering, and interesting radiator tap ))

    I canโ€™t remember if the music at around 13:00 mins with the piston placement is what Iโ€™ve heard on Project Binky or the Skid Factory, but Iโ€™d sure like to know what it is.

    Hey Davin, my first question to you.. I see you use click type torque wrenches and I go to school where the preferred wrench is the newer electronic one. But me personally grown to like the click types.. whats you preference on either wrench?

    'Not that I've ever been there…" Has never happened to me either!


    Haha, some good acting there in the end. One turn of the engine and then looking up โ€œgotcha!โ€


    I inherited 5 Buick Riviera's from 63-66 when my father passed. This was awesome to watch and I now have a better understanding of the nailhead. Thank you thank you thank you!

    Nice work guys, my Dad and brother had several Buicks with that engine, strong runners. Btw, the Buick 430 also uses the same ring set. ๐Ÿ˜‰


    Would you ever consider doing a 242 4.0l inline 6 and if so, could you do something different then a standard rebuild? Like instead of it making at most 180 hp stock, why not going for more hp. Just something I was thinking as Iโ€™m rebuilding my 4.0l And love seeing all the time lapse
