After 2 years I finally feel I have the truck I had envisioned from the beginning. Some of the reasons for delay were my own mistakes, but after rebuilding the engine for the 3rd time, I feel those issues are behind me.
This video is an overview of the rebuild of my 383 stroker and how I finally solved my oil leak issues. It included the first start up and test drive. Be sure to turn up your speakers for that.
I hope the information in this video helps you avoid costly mistakes when you assemble an engine, and gives you some insight into engine building.
