Re: My School Project...Chevy Small Block...

Jan 12, 2007
Nice, I wish my school had a class where I could work on engines and cars.  We used to have a real garage on campus, but tore it down to build a new building.  Eventually, the entire program was reduced to building one electric car a year...and even that is gone completely, b/c Hawaiian Electric stopped subsidizing the program.

Unfortunately, that is so short-sighted in today's world.

i worked on this engine today. Removed entire ignition system, and put it back together. Also did the timing. I did this by myself and in about an hour or so. It wasnt working before because the kid before me was an idiot and messed up the firing order. When i was done it came to life on the first crank. Teacher said its been about 4 years since he has last seen that happen.






this engine comes from a 1979 Malibu. Its a 5.0 litre 305CID



I wish my school had auto shop!
