...This is NO Mechanic!! Using a 'Cheater' Pipe on a 'Rachet' Handle! He does Not know the Difference between a Rachet Socket Handle, and a 'Breaker-Bar'! Keep him out of My Shop!! The Next Morning, hear it 'Click-Click-Click', he just taught the world how to Destroy a Precision Tool. He turned in the opposite direction of rotation...Because He HAS too, to keep from Loosening the Damper Bolt! Not allowed in My Shop, I don't care who he is.

Interesting videos.  Part 3 is a bit like my engine except mine has no sleeve, and perhaps more detail work…

Everyone is concerned about the Cleveland thin wall castings, but in this video, you would have thought they would have mentioned if they punched through the block?  I guess there was no issue.

How thick are the sleeves, I wonder?

IIRC, there is a desirable minimum thickness of the cylinder wall on the thrust surfaces…. (After review of the post below… it is .080” minimum on the non-thrust surfaces, and .120” on thrust surfaces!  Thanks, Rene!)

Anyway, nice review of the machining process.

They should have used a torque plate on top of the block when they bored out the cylinders…
