How to Swap GM LS-Series Engines into (Almost) Anything shows how to fit these powerhouse engines into popular GM F-Body cars, such as the Camaro and Firebird, but also how install these powerplants non-GM muscle cars, sports cars, trucks, and of course, hot rods. This book includes a historical review, complete specs and detailed information, so you can select and fit the best LS engine for a particular vehicle and application. A section on mounting kits explains how to install these engines into a variety of cars using readily available motor mount kits, universal engine mounts, or fabricated mounts. In addition, the book shows you how to perform necessary oil pan modifications and adapt accessory drivers as well as choose the most suitable fuel pump, exhaust system, wiring harness, and electronic control module.

This book presents operational and practical issues of automotive mechatronics with special emphasis on the heterogeneous automotive vehicle systems approach, and is intended as a graduate text as well as a reference for scientists and engineers involved in the design of automotive mechatronic control systems. As the complexity of automotive vehicles increases, so does the dearth of high competence, multi-disciplined automotive scientists and engineers. This book provides a discussion into the type of mechatronic control systems found in modern vehicles and the skills required by automotive scientists and engineers working in this environment. Divided into two volumes and five parts, Automotive Mechatronics aims at improving automotive mechatronics education and emphasises the training of students’ experimental hands-on abilities, stimulating and promoting experience among high education institutes and produce more automotive mechatronics and automation engineers. The main subject that are treated are: VOLUME I: RBW or XBW unibody or chassis-motion mechatronic control hypersystems; DBW AWD propulsion mechatronic control systems; BBW AWB dispulsion mechatronic control systems; VOLUME II: SBW AWS diversion mechatronic control systems; ABW AWA suspension mechatronic control systems. This volume was developed for undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as for professionals involved in all disciplines related to the design or research and development of automotive vehicle dynamics, powertrains, brakes, steering, and shock absorbers (dampers). Basic knowledge of college mathematics, college physics, and knowledge of the functionality of automotive vehicle basic propulsion, dispulsion, conversion and suspension systems is required.

In this remarkable new photographic history, local historian and photographer Dennis LeBeau presents a heartwarming tale of life in the Brookfields at the turn of the century. The photographs in this collection are those of William Bullard, an itinerant photographer in the 1890s and early 1900s from North Brookfield, whose work has never before been published in book form. The story of Bill Bullard's life and photographic legacy are dramatically revealed in this fascinating glimpse into the past. After the photographer's untimely and tragic demise, the rich photographic archives of Bill Bullard were carefully preserved by his brother, Charlie Bullard, and three generations of the neighboring Gaudette family. Dennis LeBeau has individually reprinted each image in this collection from its original glass plate negative. Mr. LeBeau's researched and well-informed captions accompany the photographs in Bullard's collection, creating a comprehensive historic portrait of both the Brookfields and the Bullard family.
