YouTubers What’s Inside Cut Engine in Half

By -

Father and son team take on their biggest challenge yet: seeing what’s inside a car engine.

When you were a kid, did you take apart your toys (and other stuff) to see what they were made of? The YouTube channel What’s Inside┬ástarted years ago, with an elementary school project to see what was inside various sports balls. These days they have gone much further. And in one of their latest vids, they cut open a typical car engine (with the help of a local shop).

No, it isn’t an LS motor. But who cares when they are going to destroy it anyway? Of course, you aren’t cutting something like this in half with a hacksaw, or a cut-off wheel. Luckily, a local shop has all the necessary heavy-duty machine tools. But even the liquid-cooled, industrial, carbide-tipped band saw had a hard time with the hardened wrist pins, and they broke several blades in the process!

From the point of view of the 10-year-old-kid co-host, this must be the most awesome stuff ever! In the end, they are forced to literally break the last little bit of the block with a wedge and a hydraulic press, like a hunk of wood.

This father and son team are YouTube stars, so there are plenty of other videos to entertain you too. If you like educational destruction, you can watch plenty of it here.
