Technician Brian Ament went to work assembling the engine. He has assembled more engines than most people have seen in their lifetime. He began by installing the camshaft and then the timing assembly and heads. Here you can see him installing one of the pushrods. The Hemi engine uses 16 valves and a dual-plug design. The cam is mounted high in the engine so the pushrods are short.
