Automotive Machining : A Guide to Boring, Decking, Honing & More (Paperback) (Mike Mavrigian)
about this item
A detailed, authoritative, and thorough automotive engine-machining guide for the hard-core enthusiast has not been available until now. Mike Mavrigian, editor of Engine Building Professional, walks you through each important machining procedure. A stock 300-hp engine build has far different requirements than a 1,000-hp drag race engine, and Mavrigian reveals the different machining procedures and plans according to application and engine design. The author also shows you how to inspect, measure, and evaluate components so you can provide astute guidance and make the best machine work choices. Machining procedures included are cylinder boring, align boring/honing, decking, valveseat cutting, cam tunnel boring, and a multitude of other services. In addition, multi-angle valve jobs, setting the valveseats, altering rocker arm ratio, re-conditioning connecting rods, and machining and matching valvetrain components are also covered.
Whether you're an enthusiast engine builder or prospective machining student who wants to pursue a career as an automotive machinist, this book will provide insight and in-depth instruction for performing the most common and important machining procedures.
