Very detailed and easy to follow
Some of the information is dated
My copy of this book has a different cover, I believe it is more recent as I bought it about a year ago.
There is a lot of great information contained in it. Wilson does a good job breaking down the engine rebuild process, starting from removal all the way through to first firing. There is also a good amount of data regarding the identification of factory parts.
However, the information is copyrighted in 1983 so certain processes and parts are not mentioned. For example, hypereutectic pistons are absent, as are roller camshafts.
Overall I'd say this is a good book for use as a reference during engine rebuilding, however I'd look elsewhere when making parts selections.
