I always figured that taking an engine apart couldn't really be that hard. The more I stare at this video, though, the more dumbstruck I am with how many components go into even a relatively simple, old engine.

I can't imagine keeping track of every little washer, or getting out every spring just as it went in.

Maybe I'm wrong. Have you torn down an engine before? Am I blowing things out of proportion?
