The most authoritative book on the Chevy Small Block Engine 8 Jan 2013
By Dave Titchenal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Growing up in Northern California my first interests in hot rods and performance engines began at about the age of 12 watching older brothers and their friends build GTO's, Corvettes and SS's in the neighborhood. We lived close to Modesto California where George Lucas grew up. Modesto was the inspiration for American Graffiti. These guys would build their cars and cruise them on McHenry blvd. As a kid you pick up on buzz words and "289" or "327" were very important to a young man's vocabulary. Later, when I started to build my own engines I was already a Chevy man and I absorbed everything I could learn about the Chevy small block engines. That's why this book by Tom Madigan is such a treasure. There is so much history and provenance written into it that even if you never touched a wrench as a kid you could be as knowledgeable as anyone after reading this book. Madigan has always been known for getting his information first hand from the people who were making the history. The Bible is no exception. Madigan talks to and quotes some of the biggest names in performance building and manufacturing in the world. The guys that drove the industry and created the legends. Like Ed Pink and Paul Pfaff and Vic Edelbrock and his son. If you have fond memories of the small block Chevy from your youth, buy this book for nostalgic reasons. If you are currently building engines then you must have this book for the wealth of knowledge and insights is contains.

a must have for the first time builder 29 Dec 2013
By walter nevis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
this is a good book it was well written. this is not a rebuild manual, but there is valuable information in here. If your getting ready to build your first motor this book will help you make a plan. It would be worth reading at least twice before you build or rebuild you first engine. lots of basics you may not of thought about.
