Today I attended the Mattituck engine assembly workshop. Mahlon of Mattituck put out a post on VAF about the class - One day class on engine assembly, free. Being only 5 hours away by car, it was a simple decision to make the trip and get educated on engines.

I had no idea really what to expect when I walked in the door. About 50 people were in attendance total. On the table in the front were all the components of an engine - crank case, mags, cylinders, cam, etc., and a crankshaft mounted on a stand.

From about 9:00am until 3:30 pm the engine went together with a full explanation of everything that was happening. All audience questions were answered fully and thoroughly. During the frequent breaks, Mahlon, Keith and John happily answered questions. On top of all of this, complimentaty breakfast, lunch and desert were provided as well as a tour of the test cell and the Parker car museum on the field. Worst part of the day was the drive home through typical NYC traffic. All in all, a great experience.

And 8 hours later, a perfectly good engine.
