Bring that old Oldsmobile engine back to life with this new, all-color Workbench-edition book.
Oldsmobile caught the performance world by surprise when it launched its new overhead valve (OHV) V-8 in 1949 called the Rocket. These engines, along with Cadillac, were the first post-war OHV design produced by General Motors. In a world of flathead V-8 performance, they were a major step forward and an instant hit. As was the norm for all American car manufacturers in the 1950s and 1960s, the Rocket V-8s grew in size and performance capability until the Generation II engines began production in 1964. Offered in a variety of displacements over the 27-year run, the Generation II engine was offered in sizes ranging from 260 to 455 ci, suiting every possible need from reliable fuel economy to all-out performance.
In Oldsmobile V-8 Engines 1964–1990: How to Rebuild, veteran author Mike Forsythe takes you through the complete process of rebuilding and restoring your Generation II Rocket V-8 to its original glory. Covered in a thorough step-by-step format are the tools required, the disassembly process, analysis of what went wrong, parts selection and replacement, the machining process, pre-assembly, final assembly, and the break-in process. Some performance upgrade options are also included.
The Oldsmobile Generation II engine had a lengthy and productive run not only powering Oldsmobiles but also a variety of Buicks and Pontiacs. If you are in the restoration process or simply want a return to factory-original performance in your Cutlass, Delta 88, Vista Cruiser, Toronado, 98, or 442, this book is an essential tool in bring your Oldsmobile back to its original glory.
