    Couldn't have been Ruben, it wasn't on a kitchen table.

    Who's to say that Ruben's kitchen table is not actually a Black and Decker Workmate™?

    Well, it does end with the one motor being removed from the car before the rebuilt one goes in there, so the circle can remain unbroken.

    But I confess that wasn't me, I would have had a few more leftover parts than he did.

    I used to own an old Volvo and the engine looked a lot like that.

    Nice stop motion video!

    Fantastic stuff! The only thing that bothered my aesthetic senses was that he didn't paint the block etc while it was disassembled. That seemed odd to me (but I've never rebuilt an engine...).

    That's a cute video. The motor looks an awful lot like the motor out of my MG, only backwards.
