If you are looking for a high-gloss, well documented, packed with photographs guide to rebuilding the engines of these classic cars look no further than this resource. In years of being involved with automotive literature, I found the organization and layout of this book to be very intuitive and helpful. Some might wonder why we might still turn to text based resources for auto repair...this book and series beautifully answer that query. While YouTube videos might show live action of certain work being done, those videos provide a level of documentation and detail that lacks...the detailed, still photos of these engines at various stages of the rebuilding process add greatly to the users understanding of the process. I'd recommend this book for any classic car enthusiast who is looking for an easy to follow, highly detailed guide to rebuilding these timeless engines. Not only will the volume assist in your work, but will leave you daydreaming for the next project or jealously comparing the documentation to that which you've been able to produce with your iPhone!… (lisätietoja)

I received a physical copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

AMC V-8 Engines: Rebuild and Modify: 1966-1991
By Tony Pontillo

Most of my experience with cars is bodywork and some minor engine repairs (replace fuel pump, etc). I have never performed a full rebuild of an engine so this book caught my eye. A chance to learn something new.

I was pleasantly surprised by the layout, color photos and detailed information it contained. Not being a rebuild expert, I showed the book to a friend of mine (who has now tried to claim it as his own), and he too was impressed with the layout and content.

This book is full of great knowledge to include information on valve cover tags (by the digit), budgeting your rebuild, engine specs chart, and detailed step-by-step procedures for the actual breakdown, etc, etc.

Amazing, if I can just get it back from my friend!

Content: 5 stars
Layout: 5 stars
STARS: 5 overall

The AMC V-8 Engines 1966-1991 Car-Tech book by Tony Pontillo Is a “must Have” for anyone stock rebuilding or modifying AMC engines. Great photos, step by step build info and charts. The book has lots of aftermarket parts info as well as rare AMC parts and identifying information. The rest of the book title is “How To Rebuild & Modify”, and lives up to it very well. Great book.

Another very useful book from SA Design. I learned a lot about AMC engines I wasn't aware of. Biggest, most important thing is if you're having one of these rebuilt, take it to a shop that's familiar with them. They have several unusual design features that can cause you much trouble down the road if you aren't aware of them. Lot's of very useful pictures, though an occasional arrow to indicate what's being referred to would help. Technical note: bowls is constantly mis-spelled as bowels throughout the book. Briefly amusing, but should be fixed if practical.… (lisätietoja)
