BIG BLOCK CHEVY 396 ENGINE REBUILDING SERVICE
We have a 1965 Chevy Corvette 396 6.5L V8 long block engine in for a complete rebuild at the machine shop this week.
Compared to some of our other jobs, this came in pretty clean. Check it out.
(The orange looks really bright online, my real pics are a lot duller)
First up, we have to tear it apart and inspect all the parts. Looking for any signs of cracks or severe wear and tear. Everything gets scrubbed and hot tanked and re-inspected.
Cylinder heads get prepped for a Valve Job. Grind the valves, cut the seats, resurface the heads, install new exhaust guides and valve stem seals. Clean, Paint, and Assemble the 396 heads and they’re ready to bolt on the block.
We have to machine the block for the new pistons, so it’s off to Bore and Hone the cylinders. Giving them a nice cross hatch finish. Crank and Cam get a grind and polish.
It’s time to build the Short Block. We’ve got the Engine Rebuild Kit parts and we’re ready for assembly. New Pistons, Rings, Engine Bearings, Full Gasket Set, Freeze Plugs, Oil Pump, and Timing Set.
Chevy 396 Long block assembly is completed.
Long Block is ready for pick up.

Hi, I have a 1965 impala coupe with a 283 small block but would like to purchase a 1965 396 motor, do you have one and what would the price be?
Thank you for your inquiry, unfortunately we do not have a Chevy 396 engine in stock at this time. Those are hard to source.
