Machining is an essential part of high-performance engine building and stock engine rebuilding. Although you may not own the expensive tooling and machining to perform all or any of the machining required for a quality build, understanding the principles, procedures, and goals for machining is vital so you can guide the machining process when outsourced. Classic and older engines typically require extensive machining and almost every major component of engine, including block, heads, intake, crankshaft, and pistons, requires some sort of machining and fitment.

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.
