Would like to attempt the teardown to short block and installation of these parts myself. I have no prior build experience, but I am a millwright so I can use most tools/ guages/indicators. I have two of the books that grumpy recommended the BBC IV and V, VI how to. Not sure if this learning experience is worth the sum of these parts and my LS6 being destroyed, know what I mean? What do you think guys , need some words of wisdom. Thanks
I say go for it, take your time, ask as many questions as possible untill you feel comfortable with any decisions reguarding this project. I'd rather take the time and learn to do it myself rather than trust someone else to do it- a bit anal I guess
The old saying if you want something done right ya better do it yourself is very true IMO.
