      1. Icy Uranus

        what did mr chandler think of the kaases messing around with his motor? how about the displacement shrinking?

      2. Trey Rich

        hmm. i think i would prefer to just watch it on youtube for free.

      3. Amir Pomen

        waiting for ep3 coming up on this channel

      4. Justin Lafferty

        benoit8850 It’s on HISTORY Sunday mornings between 7-9AM ET/PT

      5. benoit8850

        I used to watch every episode on Spike tv. Then in January, Power Nation disappeared and was replaced with back to back episodes of Bar Rescue😳 WTF?

    3. stevensrspcplusmc

      If it’s going into a museum why do all of this

    4. Ryan Walker


    5. Ithmiths

      I would totaly do one last year with the truck in monster jam... i dont care how mutch id have to pay

    6. NICK M

      This is really interesting I would like to learn how to do block and head machining even though I’m 13 years old but I love cars I helped my dad build a 440 big block to put in a 1966 Plymouth fury sedan

    7. Santiago Granados

      So why was it removed in the first place?

    8. j wazy109

      It's Bananas !! it Should be kept at the National Museum . The Smithsonian

    9. Brett Smith

      This is INCREDIBLE! Keep it up, make merch!

    10. Patrick Rapan

      Cork gasket? Fuck off

    11. Backwood studios

      are there any freeze plugs in the block? I didn't see any

      1. Phillip Aubin

        They're not actually freeze plugs. They're drain ports for the sand casting.

    12. Jeffrey Simmons

      You guys are so awkward, and all the stupid filler comments are pathetic. It's amazing how modern amateur YT content is blowing away these sorts of scripted, cringy, condescending "professional" productions.

    13. Marco Natal

      Wow putting this engine together is a real b**** they very lucky they got a master Jon kaase to help put this into together everybody did a great job the mechanics here are amazing

    14. Shubham Pawar

      You should have used calipers on the crank for more accuracy

    15. jamie muncy

      I bought a set of BBF P-51 Kazee heads and they worked awesome then I switched to a 9.5 deck Windsor and put a Kazee P-38 head on my SBF and their awesome too. Just don’t understand why your building a iconic BBF engine but advertising Chevy LS parts, that’s just not right. Love the video tho💯

    16. James4wd

      I love building engines, always been fascinated with machining and the technical side of things in general. Great video guys!

    17. Jacob Sanders

      I'm going to get a lot of hate for this, but these guys are complete shit. Sure, they know what they're doing, but they're just annoying as hell

    18. snowfurthefox

      God I would kill to have an Allen Roots engine to put into my econoline van.

    19. buubised

      really enjoyable video, loving this!!! but still being a rotor head :D

    20. TheZXKUQYB

      Do love watching a good engine build

    21. thodkats

      Hey kid! Care for some metric measurements ?

    22. Gary Harper

      I am surprised by how thin the walls are between the cylinders.

      1. Patrick Rapan

        Doesn't matter at all

    23. Fee

      I’m not building an LS wtf are you talking to me like a commercial for

    24. Kam

      Pat.. Do you really need 25 pens??

    25. #YAY# -

      These guys are old school genius talent

    26. Honest Acehole

      I need my 429 rebuilt

    27. anysnail

      I have to admit even as an American who was raised with and worked with standard tools my whole life those crazy thousands and ten thousands measurements are silly. It’s time we go metric.

    28. Pete M

      "self clearanced" LMAO

      1. kmccurdy21

        Pete M IKR. I loved that part

    29. fanghicheck

      i am dreaming of a BIG BLOCK , are you ?

    30. T J

      Not your normal Misfit Garage engine build.

    31. jason

      sort it out will ya how many pens you need to show off in your top pocket

    32. KingCharlesVI

      love how early 2000 this video is

    33. NatureRecycleFlorida

      cool video

    34. stilltlrforlife

      Supernerds at thier finest..

    35. D G

      That used to be my shirt, but I sold it to this guy because it couldnt hold enough pens

    36. Bryan Roupe

      What a kick in the balls. BBF build series and plugs LS parts at the end. 🤣

    37. Bryan Roupe

      I wished I could afford a set of Kasse sbf heads. Have been wanting a set for years but my Windsor SR heads get the job done.

    38. Chad w

      this is straight up car porn.... no joke straight up car porn.... im gonna watch this for another 3 hours

    39. Richard NZ

      9:05 what is he doing with a feeler gauge

    40. Chris Cooke

      Very interesting , will be great to see it running. but how many pens

    41. Trouser Schnauzer

      sending this truck to the smithsonian is such a massive waste. it will never move under it's own power again. i saw this truck when i was little in st. louis and the thought of it wasting away in a museum is depressing.

    42. Julian Ospina

      I can't stop looking at all his pens in his pocket

    43. Nagy Andras

      fun fact.. pistons needs to be a bit oval. so the measurement shown here is .. meaningless.

    44. Ryan Klapperich

      "Tool on the flywheel bolts were installed at some point and they self-clearanced on the back of this cap and block. The fix after these bolts were removed required helicoils to the crank." Uh... Say what now?

      1. Ryan Klapperich

        Holy crap.. it only got more confusing. Backlash on the threads... Tension on the mic... Jounals... I thought you wrote in jounals, lol.


      *Worst Part Washer fluid EVER!!! Dump that soap out, disconnect the Heater and put Kerosene in it............I miss Varsol and real Creosote ...Stay outa my life, Stupid Ass EPA!!!*

    46. Ben Miosi

      I understood 1% of this video and enjoyed 100%.

      1. Kam

        @Donaven Moon I think a V8 motor gave birth to both of them. :)

      2. Donaven Moon

        These motherfuckers are smart

    47. Woody Woodlstein

      Excellent excellent tutorial

    48. Bryan Smith

      What ever happened to Alan Root? The guy just dissapeared. I remember AR back in the late 80's building some awesome BBF stuff for boat racers.

      1. T J

        Bryan Smith I was wondering the same thing?

    49. H u l k a r o n i & C h e e s e

      12:25 lol

    50. burt24pop

      good job fellas!

    51. Timothy Bueschel


    52. dumpsteRat

      Bigfoot an American icon and legend reborn. Sadly the beast will be put to sleep

    53. David Mcnerney

      Dude way too much shit in your pocket protector.

    54. Liam Rella

      Paul Giamatti sure does know a lot about engines

    55. davydaly

      Pity you yanks wouldn't update and use the metric system

      1. Bryan Smith

        LOL. Not for a lack of trying. It was pushed hard in the 70's. Just didn't catch on.

    56. pacificnwgroup2

      Ware in the hll are the next episodes? Looking all over 4 them

    57. Shawn Eliason

      I would rather go full blown homo than watch this crap!

    58. chrysny413

      Why is all the damage a mystery? Like bob doesn’t remember blowing a rod through the side of the block?

      1. Phillip Aubin

        No shit right

    59. DarthFunkNinja

      Put more body oil on it; god damn. Gloves people.

    60. thegenrl

      Damn there's a surprising amount of good tech info for engine building in this episode! Great job PowerNation on quality content!

    61. AlphaAsFuark!

      I hope this kind of work doesn't disappear.

    62. GIJo

      LS adds on a Ford build... pft.. piss off

    63. henmich

      .0002" you'd be lucky to get those kind of numbers. That's funny to call that out of round... Brand new CNC mills are lucky to hold that number.

    64. intintsgamer

      less talk and more work gezz!!!

    65. importsstillsuck

      Gonna do all that work to it just to have it sit in the Smithsonian.

    66. lucian kristov

      Jon kaase has a reputation for ripping people off with the 427 cammer heads.

    67. Get-The-Lead-Out.45

      NICE VIDEO Actually went into a lot of details and no stupid music edited in!

    68. Yağmur Bayrakdarlar

      10 pen guy

    69. andrewford80

      This stuff is fascinating!

    70. pacificnwgroup2

      Ware r all the episodes?? It jumps to the final after this one
