Chevrolet Small Blocks Parts Interchange Manual (Revised)

In this revised edition of the Chevrolet Small-Block Parts Interchange Manual, Chevrolet expert and author Ed Staffel delivers detailed interchange information on cranks, rods, pistons, cylinder heads, intake manifolds, exhaust manifolds, ignitions, carburetors, and more.
Casting and serial number identification guides are included to help you through the myriad of available parts in salvage yards, at swap meets, and on the internet.
