The photos in this edition are black and white. Skylarks, GSXs, Grand Nationals, Rivieras, Gran Sports; the list of formidable performance Buicks is impressive. From the torque monsters of the 1960s to the high-flying Turbo models of the '80s, Buicks have a unique place in performance history. During the 1960s, when word of the mountains of torque supplied by the big-inch Buicks hit the street, nobody wanted to mess with them. Later, big-inch Buicks and the Hemi Chryslers went at it hammer and tongs in stock drag shootouts and in the pages of the popular musclecar magazines of the day. The wars between the Turbo Buicks and Mustang GTs in the 1980s were also legendary, as both cars responded so well to modifications. "How to Build Max-Performance Buick Engines" is the first performance engine book ever published on the Buick family of engines. This book covers everything from the Nailheads of the '50s and early '60s, to the later evolutions of the Buick V-8 through the '60s and '70s, through to the turbo V-6 models of the '70s and '80s. Veteran magazine writer and Buick owner Jefferson Bryant supplies the most up-to-date information on heads, blocks, cams, rotating assemblies, interchangeability, and oiling-system improvements and modifications, along with details on the best performance options available, avenues for aftermarket support, and so much more. Finally, the Buick camp gets the information they have been waiting for, and it's all right here in "How to Build Max-Performance Buick Engines."

Millions of Chevrolet vehicles were built and sold in the 1960s and 1970s, and the great majority of those were rear-wheel-drive models with differentials known as 10-bolts or 12-bolts. High-performance limited-slip versions of these differentials also have been installed in Camaros, Chevelles, Corvettes, and many other GM muscle cars from 1964 through the 1970s, as well as Chevy and GMC trucks. If you have owned a GM performance car from the 1960s or 1970s, you have owned one of these sturdy, reliable, and versatile differentials. Many of these differentials are now more than 50 years old and are due for an overhaul. In Chevy Differentials: How to Rebuild the 10- and 12-Bolt, author Jefferson Bryant walks you through the entire process of procuring, evaluating, and rebuilding the perfect differential for your GM application. In this step-by-step guide, you learn how to completely disassemble the differential, evaluate components, and select replacement parts. You're also shown all of the up-to-date techniques for re-assembling the differential and axle. Informative sections on axle identification and replacement parts are also provided. Maybe you have found a salvage-yard unit and want to rebuild it to upgrade your existing vehicle. Maybe you would like to install an aftermarket 12-bolt assembly for extreme performance or racing. This is the only book dedicated solely to rebuilding, setting up, and modifying these axle assemblies for long service life and maximum performance. If you’re going to rebuild a Chevy 10- or 12-bolt axle, this book delivers the essential information to get the job done right.

Over the last 40 years, millions of Chrysler, AMC, and Jeep vehicles have used these differentials, propelling these high-performance vehicles to victory on the street, in drag racing, and other applications. Chrysler used the Dana 60 and BorgWarner Sure-Grip high-performance differentials in the Challenger, Charger, Barracuda, Super Bee and many other renowned Chrysler muscle cars. These differentials have been tied to historic powerhouse engines, such as the Chrysler Magnum and Hemi V8s in stock car, drag racing, and other forms of racing, making history in the process. Jeep CJs and Cherokees have used the Dana 44 and AMC 20 and put these differentials under tremendous loads, which often requires frequent rebuilds. After years of use, these differentials require rebuilding, and of course aftermarket suppliers offer ring and pinion and other parts to upgrade these axles. In this Workbench series title, the focus is on the disassembly, inspection and step-by-step rebuild of the most popular high-performance differentials. Axles and differentials are not incredibly complex components, but there are some specific steps to follow for rebuilding, upgrading, and setting them up properly, and this book demystifies the process and explains it in detail. A book dedicated to the Dana, Sure-Grip, and AMC Jeep axles has never been published before, and Mopar, Jeep and AMC enthusiasts are hungry for this information. The Dana and AMC axles should remain in wide use into the foreseeable future, and therefore there will be a consistent demand for this information. This book will also feature extensive gear and application charts, so the reader is sure to select the correct gear ratio for a particular vehicle and application. Special coverage is therefore dedicated to ring and pinion gears. In addition selecting the best aftermarket and production axle shafts is covered as well as modifying and upgrading the differential housings.

Introduced in 1997, the GM LS engine has become the dominant V-8 engine in GM vehicles and a top-selling high-performance crate engine. GM has released a wide range of Gen III and IV LS engines that deliver spectacular efficiency and performance. These compact, lightweight, cutting-edge pushrod V-8 engines have become affordable and readily obtainable from a variety of sources. In the process, the LS engine has become the most popular V-8 engine to swap into many American and foreign muscle cars, sports cars, trucks, and passenger cars. To select the best engine for an LS engine swap, you need to carefully consider the application. Veteran author and LS engine swap master Jefferson Bryant reveals all the criteria to consider when choosing an LS engine for a swap project. You are guided through selecting or fabricating motor mounts for the project. Positioning the LS engine in the engine compartment and packaging its equipment is a crucial part of the swap process, which is comprehensively covered. As part of the installation, you need to choose a transmission crossmember that fits the engine and vehicle as well as selecting an oil pan that has the correct profile for the crossmember with adequate ground clearance. Often the brake booster, steering shaft, accessory pulleys, and the exhaust system present clearance challenges, so this book offers you the best options and solutions. In addition, adapting the computer-control system to the wiring harness and vehicle is a crucial aspect for completing the installation, which is thoroughly detailed. As an all-new edition of the original top-selling title, LS Swaps: How to Swap GM LS Engines into Almost Anything covers the right way to do a spectrum of swaps. So, pick up this guide, select your ride, and get started on your next exciting project.

Le nouveau chef d'œuvre de l'auteur de Dans le jardin de la Bête. Une invention qui va révolutionner le monde. Une des plus grandes poursuites criminelles de l'histoire. Le nouveau chef-d'œuvre d'Erik Larson. 1910, Londres. Un respectable médecin, Harvey Crippen, met fin à un mariage insupportable en assassinant sa femme, une flamboyante chanteuse d'opéra. Lorsque naissent les premiers soupçons, Crippen, accompagné de sa maîtresse, prend un bateau, le SS Montrose, à destination du Québec. Sur ses traces, un inspecteur de Scotland Yard qui, grâce à une invention toute récente de Marconi, la communication sans fil, va permettre au grand public de suivre, par médias interposés, cette incroyable poursuite en haute mer. Dans cet exceptionnel document historique, Erik Larson nous conte en parallèle les aventures de Marconi et du Dr Crippen – dont le destin fascina tant Alfred Hitchcock qu'il s'en inspira pour de nombreux films, en particulier Fenêtre sur cour – et nous donne un tableau saisissant des débuts du monde moderne. Captivant de la première à la dernière page, Les Passagers de la foudre passionnera autant les amateurs d'histoire que les adeptes d'enquêtes policières. " Une nouvelle réussite de Larson ! Comme dans son précédent livre, il s'attaque à un fait historique peu connu et en fait de l'or. Une véritable alchimie ! " The New York Times " Le don véritable qu'a Larson de restituer une époque et des personnages captivants fait des Passagers de la foudre une lecture irrésistible. " The Washington Post

À la Kite’s Nest Farm, les vaches vivent en liberté. Chippy refuse de dormir avec les pieds boueux et fait toujours sa toilette avant de se coucher. Fat Hat préfère la présence des hommes à celle des femmes. Le vice caché de Jake est de renifler les émanations du tuyau d’échappement du Land Rover. Colérique et farouchement indépendante, Gemima salue tous les humains qu’elle rencontre d’un hochement de tête. Dans son délicieux et très inattendu ouvrage, Rosamund Young nous donne des chroniques affectueuses, drôles et touchantes du monde des vaches avec lesquelles elle vit depuis plus de cinquante ans. Loin de l’agriculture intensive, respectueuse de l’environnement, elle nous offre ici le plus convaincant et le plus amusant des plaidoyers contre la souffrance animale. « Rosamund Young a écrit un livre d’observation, d’affection, d’amitié. Rosamund Young a écrit un livre de tendresse, de compassion, de complicité. Rosamund Young a écrit, oui, c’est bien ça, un livre d’amour pour les vaches. » FRANÇOIS MOREL Traduit de l’anglais par Sabine Porte

Le Ministère du Bonheur Suprême nous emporte dans un voyage au long cours, des quartiers surpeuplés du Vieux Delhi vers la nouvelle métropole en plein essor et, au-delà, vers la Vallée du Cachemire et les forêts de l’Inde centrale, où guerre et paix sont interchangeables et où, de temps à autre, le retour à "l’ordre" est déclaré. Anjum, qui fut d’abord Aftab, déroule un tapis élimé dans un cimetière de la ville dont elle a fait son foyer. Un bébé apparaît soudain un peu après minuit sur un trottoir, couché dans un berceau de détritus. L’énigmatique S. Tilottama est une absence autant qu’une présence dans la vie des trois hommes qui l’aiment. Cette histoire d’amour poignante et irréductible se raconte dans un murmure, dans un cri, dans les larmes et, parfois, dans un rire. Ses héros sont des êtres brisés par le monde dans lequel ils vivent, puis sauvés, réparés par l’amour et l’espoir. Aussi inflexibles que fragiles, ils ne se rendent jamais. Ce livre magnifique et ravageur repousse les limites du roman dans sa définition et dans sa portée. Vingt ans après Le Dieu des Petits Riens, Arundhati Roy effectue un retour époustouflant à la fiction.
