Have some good friends. Whether they are car enthusiasts or not, friends can make your rebuild project so much easier. I was very lucky in this regard, and have had people all over the world offer me encouragement online through internet forums and emails, and also here in Okinawa people have been helpful and… well, what god friends and good people should be.
rebuild a car engine It will not cost you any more than $200 to build the system and the parts can be bought at your local hardware store. Because of the advancements in technology you can easily do this yourself. Anyone who know a little bit about a car engine can install this easily.
Buy the Haynes Manual for your car — These manuals are car specific and have detailed information as well as pictures to help you. This will be one of the most valuable tools you have the deeper you delve into the project.
Parts cleaner and WD40 are your friends. When you get into the engine, cleanliness is definitely next to godliness. Cylinder walls must be as close to spotless as you can manage, with any specs of dirt & grit removed. To make things seal you’re going to need clean surfaces, so parts/brake cleaner, some Scotchbrite and drug rehab games a wire brush are vital. If something’s dirty, clean it well. If it’s clean, give it another clean to make sure it’s spotless. Similarly, once you get the head off the block, the clean surfaces you’ve got might want to rust pretty quickly depending on the humidity (my block developed a thin layer of rust in hours). Coat everything in WD40 and put a towel over the block to keep moisture out as much as possible. It will keep things lubricated and keep the rust away.
overhaul a care engine Not at all, as all the parts required building a hydrogen generator can be bought locally at the hardware store, so there are no big delivery charges. All this can be purchased for under $140, and to think of the return it will give. The ready assembled kits would be considerably more, but then again in the long run, money will be saved. A garage can also install them for you if it is too big a task, but they would charge in excess of $1000.
Firstly, you need to plan your work place; where are you going to work and store the car? Most vintage car enthusiasts do their restoration project in their own garage since the car cannot be moved about during the restoration process. If you don’t have a garage, then check if you could do it in the driveway of your home. Check with your building code administrator to make sure this is allowed because in some neighborhoods; this is not allowed.

With a diesel or gasoline-powered truck that is used for bigger workloads and heavy duty hauling, you may find that you should get an oil change at the recommended three thousand miles. We know that with smaller, lighter weight vehicles, this can be too soon. Some manufacturers suggest changing the lubricant in the vehicle around five thousand miles. Again, this may be too long for a truck in constant use.
