How to Rebuild Big-Block Mopar Engines - B / RB Series Chrysler, Dodge and Plymouth engines - All years and models

When Chrysler introduced the 350 and 361 "B" series of engines in 1958, they launched a legacy of performance that sparked the muscle car war of the sixties and early seventies. Within a few years, these engines evolved into the famed 426 Hemi, 413 Max Wedge and 440 Six-Pack.
Dubbed "elephant motors" by enthusiasts, racers, and hot rodders alike, these big-blocks ruled the streets in Barracudas, Challengers, Furys, and Chargers. They were also used in a wide variety of other Chrysler, Dodge, and Plymouth cars and trucks.

This book is a comprehensive hands-on guide to rebuilding these motors to factory specifications. Included are fully illustrated, step-by-step sections that cover the entire engine rebuilding process, from inspection, removal, and disassembly, to machine shop work, reconditioning, assembly, installation, and tune-up.

Collectors and restorers who rely on correct casting numbers for authenticity will find the parts identification and interchange information to be invaluable. Written in an easy-to-understand and easy-to-follow format, this is an essential resource needed by any serious Mopar fan.

Covers 383, 400, 413, 426 Hemi and 440 cid engines.

How to Rebuild the Big-Block Mopar

The Mopar big-block RB and B engines have powered millions of Dodge, Plymouth, and Chrysler cars from 1959 to 1978, including some of the most iconic muscle cars-the Charger, Superbird, Barracuda, GTX, Road Runner, Super Bee, and many others. Over the course of 50-plus years, these engines have required and will continue to require rebuilding, and this book is an indispensable guide for the process.

Veteran magazine writer Arvid Svendsen documents a professional-caliber rebuild in this latest Workbench Series title. Photographs accompanied by exceptionally detailed captions with clear, concise instructions guide you through each crucial stage of the rebuild process. You will be able to confidently complete the rebuild of an entire engine, which includes pulling the engine from the car and disassembling the long block.

In addition, you are shown how to inspect all components, guide machine work, select optimal parts for a specific performance level, assemble the complete engine, and perform a final shake-down of the engine.
All crucial steps of assembly are shown and discussed in exquisite detail, so you can install main bearings, crankshaft, pistons, rods, lifters, push rods, and the entire valvetrain, heads, intake, carb, and all other parts with confidence. Once the engine is installed and the ignition key is turned, you will have the satisfaction of having soundly rebuilt an engine that provides years of strong faithful service.

How to Build Max-Performance Hemi Engines

Hemi. The word alone evokes images of ultra-high-performance street cars and dominating race cars. No other engine has earned as much street credibility and race success. This engine resides at the pinnacle of American V-8 performance, and cars that carry a Hemi are some of the rarest, most expensive, and legendary muscle cars ever made.
When Chrysler threw the wraps off the 426 in 1964, it made history. In the 1964 Daytona 500, the new Hemi-powered stock cars finished 1-2-3-4, announcing Chrysler's new era of dominance in racing.

This book details how to extract even more horsepower out of the incredible Hemi engines. All the block options from street versus race, new versus old, and iron versus aluminum are presented.
Full detailed coverage on the reciprocating assembly is also included. Heads play an essential role in flowing fuel and producing maximum horsepower, and therefore receive special treatment.

Author Richard Nedbal explores major head types, rocker-arm systems, head machining and prep, valves, springs, seats, porting quench control, and much more.
All camshaft considerations are discussed as well, so you can select the best specification for your engine build.

Induction options including EFI, aftermarket ignitions systems, high-performance oiling systems, and cooling systems are also covered. The book also examines in detail how to install and set up power adders such as nitrous oxide, superchargers, and turbochargers.

How to Build Max-Performance Mopar Big-Blocks

This book covers how to build Mopar's 383-, 400-, 413-, 426-, and 440-ci Big-Block engines to power levels of 600 to 900 hp. It discusses how to properly budget your engine build for a specific performance target and how to select a stock or aftermarket block for the desired performance level.
The reciprocating assembly (crankshaft, connecting rods, and pistons) is examined in detail, to help you select the right design and material for durability and performance requirements. Cylinder heads and valvetrain configurations are crucial for generating maximum horsepower and torque.

This volume discusses all the stock modification options, the best setups, selecting the right machine work, the latest aftermarket head options for producing huge horsepower, and building stroker engines. The camshafts and lifters chapter compares and contrasts use of hydraulic flat tappet, hydraulic roller, and solid flat tappet cams.
In addition, the book explains how to optimize fresh and spent fuel, discussing single- and dual-plane intake manifolds, as well as the exhaust-system design to optimize scavenging. Also details engine builds at 600, 700, 800, and 900 horsepower levels to provide insight and reveal what can be done with real-world component packages.
