    Exploring Engine Rebuild Parts and Practices

    Hi everyone, my name is Lee Flounce. I am crazy about rebuilding engines in my spare time.

Once the engine is broken into its individual components, I take some of the parts to the machine shop and clean others at home.

I would like to explore all of the parts and practices employed in this process through my website, as it differs slightly from engine to engine.
