New Redline Rebuild Video: The Time Lapse Of The 283 Chevy Teardown and Assembly Is Here And It’s A Fun Watch

We tend to stick onto the Redline Rebuild series videos like glue around here. But this time? To be totally honest, we weren’t really THAT into the 2-bbl 283 rebuild in-depth but we sure wanted to see the end product, which we have for you below. No, we have nothing against small block Chevy engines, that’s for sure, but it doesn’t strike us as compelling (on a granular basis) as the straight eights, Mini engines, and other weirdo stuff they have done in the past. In some sense, if you have seen one SBC you have seen them all, right?

This said, the payoff video for the 283 is brilliant and like all of these, a feat of really interesting film making. It has to be pure tedium to create these films bolt by bolt and nut by nut. As the engine “takes itself apart” in a seemingly uninterrupted and smooth fashion that’s got to represent hours and hours of work.

Perhaps there is an element of cool in the sense that this engine got a small roller camshaft and that’s about it. Factory intake, exhaust manifolds, and even factory style 2bbl carb. It burbles a little but that’s about it. To a degree that’s unique these days because who doesn’t plop an aluminum intake on the thing, some headers, and a hopped up ignition system?!

Watch this little mouse motor tear itself down, get some human help, and then rebuild itself. Wild.

    Watching the video in fast motion made me think of how fast the world is moving these days around a mind !Nope‼️Not able to get out in Biden’s economy.I have a 62 model 283 I freshened up.Still in standard with factory steel crank.Installed new cam bearings new crower ba-ha beast cam.Used factory Quadra jet intake.But I think the 4barrel was too much for the factory heads,small valves and and 58cc chambers.
