    Identify coating on my 273 rocker arms

    I would not guess DLC as I am looking at it? Dark "Cacao" Chocolate is a possibility.

    And go....

    Agreed. However, I do not believe they make anything but roller Lifters and not any flat tappets whatsoever.

    273 Rocker on 340

    I ran them on race cars 50 years ago with up to 550/570 Lift. They clear 1.47 spring with no grinding. Do not get crazy on the grinder as they tend to crack pretty easy around oil hole. Another issue is that the interference adjuster tended to loosen every 10/20 runs. I spot faced the rockers...

    Low oil pressure at stop light.

    Not a lot you can do on a small block. Try a heavier oil and perhaps put a aftermarket oil pressure gauge on your car so you can see how bad it actually is. You do not need a lot of oil pressure at idle but you need some!

    Torque plates

    How round the cylinder is makes a hell of a lot more an issue with ring seal than a thou or two in the ring gap does at least in our shop!

    Torque plates

    On our race engines (Especially Small Block Mopars) not only do we use a Deck Plate but we home the blocks at the water temperature that we actually stage the race cars at. Does it make a measurable difference? I do not know but we sure do get our feet wet a lot and go thru a lot of Socks.

    Hood clearance Question

    The Air Gap Intake does a pretty good job of keeping the carb cooler by itself. A 1 inch phenolic spacer should fit under stock Hood with room for a decent size Air Cleaner.

    383 Piston slap

    Not unusual for my engines to have some noise the first minute upon startup with the clearances I run on the skirt. Now if it lasts longer than that or sound like someone has a hammer inside = that is a significant concern. How much piston to wall clearance on the skirt 90 degrees opposed to...

    Starter issues

    Do you have a 130 /143 tooth flywheel? There is a 172 tooth ( I think that is accurate ) for a non gear reduction starter that the pitch of the gear may cause the starter to stick in engaged position.

    340 Oil Priming Question First Start

    No Oil pressure reading is fine. Oil only goes to rockers in a few certain positions of the engine rotation. Rotate it a bit at a time as Myron said in post #2. He knows these engines as well as anyone I know!

    What is the horse power benefits

    I would have a concern with cutting the mains down over .300 on a 360 cast crank. I would also be concerned with the opening up of the 318 block to 2.810. It would be quite a machining job for me and it would make the skinny 318 Main caps even skinnier yet. I have seen a 360 stock eliminator...
