11 Months, 3,000 Photographs and a Lot of Coffee: Rebuilding the Engine of a Triumph Spitfire

June 29, 2012

Christopher Jobson

UK-based YouTube user nothinghereok bought this used engine off Ebay for his Triumph Spitfire after his own engine suffered a catastrophic failure. He then decided to document the process of rebuilding the engine from stripping its thousands of parts, cleaning them up to completely reassembling the entire thing again. Mind-boggling. Also, a great (no so great?) little surprise at the end.
