How do you rebuild an engine?

Well, rebuilding an engine is sort of an art form and takes some experience, especially depending on what you are building. A chevy 350 is very forgiving and will basically run no matter how poor the build is. An aluminum block DOHC 4 cylinder can be destroyed the first time it's turned over if it's not right. So if you don't have the mechanical aptitude on how an engine works, start with something simple.
