Now 60 years old, your Slant Six could probably use some freshening up. Slant Six engine expert "Doctor Dodge" Doug Dutra has produced this volume to walk you through every aspect of disassembly, evaluation, rebuild, and reassembly in an easy-to-read, step-by-step format. The book also covers modifications, showing how to squeeze the most out of your engine.
From the introduction: "I will cover all the basic Slant Six engine configurations . . . and present information on how to correctly identify those engines using casting numbers, ID stampings, and visual clues. I will also show major engine components and the differences that distinguish them. . . Rebuilding an engine is a big, expensive job, so I will give some attention to engine evaluation with the hope that you can get your engine running well by doing a simple tune-up or valve adjustment. . . The steps for engine removal, breakdown, and inspection will be covered in sequence as I perform the disassembly. The particular sequences shown were chosen so your work is easier and time is not wasted. I want to support a do-it-yourselfer who has access to basic tools and is working on a street-driven vehicle, so the engine rebuild I show here will be a 'pump gas' engine, not a race engine. . . Engine assembly, installation, and initial start-up will also have an important sequence of operations that should be followed. I will share additional tips and tricks to address the special needs found when working on a Slant Six for the first time. As a bonus, I will review some currently available performance parts and special Slant Six engine combinations I have tried, in case the owner wants to got the next step and squeeze more power out of his or her engine. In summary, I want to share all the Slant Six-specific engine rebuilding details I have learned over the years and deliver understandable information to the owner of a street-driven Slant Six vehicle who has some mechanical ability and a set of basic tools."
