Re: My first V8, help me please
I hope you have a good selection of tools and a good clean work shop with a lot of space!
I found for my first engine build that it helps to lay everything out in order first.
And cleanlyness is the key to a good engine with a long life. You want an air compressor and a decent wash trough and thoroughly clean everything that is second hand in your engine, then blow all the moisture out with the compressor.
I cant recomend any books, I have never used any. But alot of older ( 80's & early 90's ) magazines have really helpfull building tips in them. I have this magazine written in about 85 with a very good article on building a clevo written by Dick Johnson, great read.
