Great resource
A great resource for rebuilding a small-black GM V8. Has a lot of good information that will assist me in the disassembly and reassembly of my 283. I haven't watched the DVD that is included with the book. This is a manual that I may pass around to others that may be in the situation as I am -- I know how to do everything but may need some instruction here and there.

The Motor Bookstore shipped quickly and I received the shrink-wrapped manual in perfect shape. No problems working with these folks!

Nice stuff here Maynard.
I'm an old fart who is putting this engine in my 60 Corvette and the thought of taking it out and putting it back in again has lost all charm, so I was interested in getting a 'Help' manual so I wouldn't make any stupid mistakes I seem to be so good at.
This book filled the bill:
Clear, concise, pictured instructions in an easy to read style, with numbered steps, that showed me much more than I knew before about rebuilding a small block. (This is my third)
Only 2 problems I encountered were the DVD had some trouble running the last sixth on my computer. (works in the DVD player, might be a computer problem) and during the rebuild they didn't tell you to fill the bolt hole that you used to hold the fuel pump pushrod up with another bolt! Not doing this will make a BIG mess on your floor when you hit that starter.
All in all an EXCELLENT book that will be extremely helpful when I get my block back from the machine shop. After it warms up here in Milwaukee.
I am going to take it to my machine shop (C&S Performance) and suggest they try to sell a copy or two.-

Great book. I like the individualized sections for every item. Easy reading, and plain language.
Still at the beginning of my project. Reading and rereading until it sinks in.
