Watch a Triumph Spitfire engine assemble itself

Mon, 24 Mar 2014

Chris Herridge bought an engine for a Triumph Spitfire on eBay. He then proceeded to take 3,000 photos as he disassembled and rebuilt it, possibly destroying his camera but gaining a shiny new SU-equipped Triumph engine by the time he was done -- eleven months later. We get the video above despite having taken no part in the labors. Not bad.

Spoiler alert: the Spitfire drives off in a reassuringly intact manner. For now. If there's ever an oil leak, we hope Herridge documents it (with a new DSLR) and sets the result to Mahler's Eighth.
