Steve Huck will probably see this post and respond. He has drawings for a V-8 engine that is based on a Chevy. He is a member so you could search his name and then send him an email.

If only I had the skill. So is that a small block, or a big block?

For anyone that is even thinking of a build like this I just want to say that his plans are amazing as well as pictures of the build and his support.
Looking forward to getting started on the build.

This is probably one of those "if you have to ask, you won't like the answer" questions, but how many engines should one have made before they try this one?

I'm at exactly zero internal combustion engines. I've done one flame eater and one steam engine.

You should be fine. Just keep in mind that you will be making 8 times as many parts. Dont be in a big hurry to run it. The block and crankshaft are many hour pieces and then it gets a little easier.

You guys got me excited so I purchased a set of plans. Any recommendations for a manual machine build log? I can find several using CNC but bupkiss for manual.

Bob Shutt built one on manual machines. He used to stop in here. Not sure if he has recently.


Got this from a search of his name: bob shutt was last seen: Thursday at 12:24 PM

Yes you need to remember it will take some time if you are slow like me took 5 years. And I found the intake and the cam the most challenging parts to make.

Start on the block. It will give you something to show around. All my milling was manual. Did cheat with drilling all the holes. Did the drill on a Cnc. Only used it to position and then pecked by hand Great engine
