      Yes... it can. He manages to pull it off. Sometimes he's right, sometimes he's wrong.

        That's an awfully tight margin.

          They lost 800 bucks on the deal, but, they did a nice Mach 1 and i'll bet they got good ratings from that episode.

              Yes, I do agree. But I thought maybe it was an old episode. It was the one about the General Lee, right? Surprised to see and hear mention of the goof balls that got canned. Mark was almost likable ...............................MO

                It was definitely the best episode of the season. It had less of the BS. That show is at its best when it sticks to the cars and the builds. The non-car stuff in this episode seemed a little more genuine, like when he was telling stories about his cousin borrowing his car for a date. It seemed like two old buddies working on an engine and giving each other some crap from their past. Something we call can relate to.

                  I like watching it whether MW is doing stupid stuff on camera or not. It is a show about Mopars for cripes sake!
                  With that said, I was a little miffed as they were putting that 340 block together. Did they measure any clearances on the piston / valves? Did they measure the pushrods? And it looked like the valvetrain went together dry. They could have done this prior but it would be nice if they explained the process if they did.

                    Agreed. I think talking about piston to valve clearance or pushrod length would have been more educational than explaining why the 1/2" drive socket couldn't be used to torque down the head bolts. Even so, it was better than a segment showing Will and the weird guy going on a road trip to pick up MW's car from the dealer. Had to fast forward through that stuff.

                    I missed it, what was wrong with the 1/2" drive socket?

                      physically didn't fit when accessing the upper row of head bolts. looked like interference with head casting in the valve area. I zoned out to be honest.
