            This is really interesting I would like to learn how to do block and head machining even though I’m 13 years old but I love cars I helped my dad build a 440 big block to put in a 1966 Plymouth fury sedan

                      are there any freeze plugs in the block? I didn't see any

                        They're not actually freeze plugs. They're drain ports for the sand casting.

                      You guys are so awkward, and all the stupid filler comments are pathetic. It's amazing how modern amateur YT content is blowing away these sorts of scripted, cringy, condescending "professional" productions.

                          You should have used calipers on the crank for more accuracy

                            I bought a set of BBF P-51 Kazee heads and they worked awesome then I switched to a 9.5 deck Windsor and put a Kazee P-38 head on my SBF and their awesome too. Just don’t understand why your building a iconic BBF engine but advertising Chevy LS parts, that’s just not right. Love the video tho💯

                                                  I have to admit even as an American who was raised with and worked with standard tools my whole life those crazy thousands and ten thousands measurements are silly. It’s time we go metric.
