Small-block Chrysler, Plymouth, and Dodge V-8
engines came in a variety of vehicles since 1964. These powerful,
durable engines powered everything from high-performance Cudas and
Chargers to torquey Dakotas and Ram trucks.
How to Rebuild the Small-Block Mopar is the most comprehensive
book on small-block Mopar engines ever released, covering 273, 318, 340,
and 360-ci LA engines and 5.2 and 5.9L Magnum V-8s. Author William Burt
uses photos and descriptive text to teach readers the complete rebuild
process from removal to break-in.
This book describes ways to increase the performance and efficiency of
your small-block Mopar, and also points out the unique steps required
for LA and Magnum versions of the engine. Topics covered include
removal, tear down, inspection, selecting parts, machine-shop work, and
assembly. Special sidebars cover torque sequences, cc-ing heads,
calculating compression ratio, and painting engine parts.

builder, though the experienced mechanic can benefit as well." -Hemmings
