This is a great book and the DVD is even better. Very informative and well illustrated. I have been working on Chevy's for years and rebuilt my share of motors. I always wanted something like this for reference. This would be great for someone who is just learning or intermediate. Get it you won't regret it!
I was impressed with the book and the DVD. As a novice to engine building I was able to follow the DVD and book with relative ease. There were a few areas of the process that are in the book that the DVD did not mention. Overall I think it is a very good tool for the novice like myself.
The book format is great: step-by-step, informative text, big color pictures on every page. The only hesitation I have with this book is the editing errors: wrong photo w/text (Ch. 2 Step #34 & #35), reference to wrong step (Ch. 2 step #51) wrong title (Ch 3 Step 12#), and this is just getting started (haven't gotten into the rest of the book).
The DVD we received within the book was defective - it played for about 2 minutes, right up to the "OK, lets get started" and then the screen would go completely white with a few lines across the bottom. Tried different DVD players, same problem. I e-mailed the publisher (CarTechbooks.com) about the defective disk, and received great support from Nancy K.; she immediately submitted a request for a new disk, and it arrived in my mail about a week afterwards - thanks again Nancy!!
I'm working on this motor rebuild project with my son, teaching him how motors work, and hopefully give him some skills he can rely on later in...
