    Did a 235 chevy 6 rebuild a long tme ago and it was a hoot! Something every novice gearhead should do once. By the way the 235 ran great !

    When I rebuilt a 5hp Tecumseh mini bike engine when I was 13, I too had parts left over. The older kids said “they give you extra parts”. It ran fine.

    Fantastic. My first engine tear-down & re-build was a ’69 Triumph Spitfire. This was like a memory, but better. No knuckle blood. Those few parts left over – I thought it was just me!
    Good piece Cyril. Thanks.

    I really, really, like this. Wish more engine rebuilds were filmed like this. Thanks Cyril and the guy who did this.

    When I saw those SU carbs I just knew it was A Triumph Spitfire!! Those carbs hated cold weather in connecticut.

    Cool, I remember doing the same exact rebuild to my spitfire.

    That is cool. If you have some time check this out.

    What’s shown in the video is the making of a tiny 1/12 scale V-12 engine
    built by a man named Patelo. It displaces only 12 cubic cm with a bore of
    11.3 mm and a stroke of 10 mm. The engine consists of 261 parts, 222
    fasteners and took 1220 hours to complete. It is powered by compressed
    air, eliminating the need for an ignition system, water cooling pumps and
    radiator or carburetion and allowing it to run for extended periods of
    time during demonstrations without heat buildup.

    Enjoy!

    Built the 235’s for short track racing in the 70’s . Had to gear in the high 6s to get that long stroke making mph. If you turned em hard enough and long enough they’d blow the whole bottom end off.
    Aint nothing sweeter.
