AMC Rambler 196 Engine
1963 AMC Rambler 196 3.2 OHV Straight 6 long block engine rebuild. These engines were produced from 1952 through 1965 in two versions, (OHV) overhead valve and flathead (L-head) side valve versions.
Teardown and Inspection, Hot tank and clean, and Magnuflux for cracks.
Machine Service: Bore and Hone, Grind Crank and Cam, and Valve Job
Clean, Paint, and Assemble the Long Block.
We rebuilt this long block with new pistons, rings, bearings, gaskets, timing components, freeze plugs and oil pump. First it went to the hot tank machine for a good degreasing. Engine block was bore and honed. Cylinder head got a basic valve job- resurfaced head, grind the valves, cut seats, clean, painted and assembled. Any broken or missing parts were replaced.
Check out the progress photos. Block work up first.

Cylinder head repairs up next. Resurfaced cylinder head, cut valve seats, grind valves, installed new guides and valve stem seals, cleaned, painted and assembled the cylinder head.
