Now that's the way to rebuild a motor. Wish it went that fast!

Having never seen pulling/rebuilding/reinstalling a Motor before this is a real treat. Thanks for posting this.


Got a kick seeing the guy sitting on the bumper drinking a soda watching the other guy work.

Notwithstanding the existence of six pages of impassioned argument about the crankshaft bearings in this video series, I really got a lot out of seeing the whole process and I'm excited that they took the time to document this.

I really liked the tool they used to heat up the studs prior to removal. Have neve seen the process they used for pouring the bearings. Was not like the way I was shown in MN by one of the members of the Lady Slippers Club using the old original tools. What I did not see was them weighing the rods, and pistons to get them less that 1/2 gram difference. Did notice that they used a counter balanced crank.

That's neat thanks! You wouldn't mind paying those guys even $200/hour if they worked that fast!
