Separate names with a comma.
So what's the NEW plan?
Heads have been sitting around gathering surface rust, the humidity here has been ridiculous lately. The will get a trip through the blast cabinet...
Nope, hydraulic cam, non adjustable rockers
Heads have been disassembled, cleaned, and crack checked, they look pretty decent, although worn out. I'll try to snap a few pics tomorrow of them
Well.....I am the machine shop.....so the bill is no problem, it's the challenge I like!
Yes, a neutral balanced LA flexplate will work fine
Not really, I just call things as I see them, sometimes that ruffles feathers!
Well, the pistons got destroyed being removed, despite the electrolysis soak, then a week of penetrating oil, and even some heat. But the rods...
Soaked the short block in a electrolysis tank I built a while back for 3 or 4 days, the results were impressive!

Car looks killer!
Where is your channel? Is having a YouTube channel the measure of success? Showing every possible wrong way to build engines and cars, using a...
I think there is another video somewhere explaining that he cut and lightend the car to somewhere near 3100 lbs, and it's one of his "hot" 318...
So....car is still slower than a one legged turtle. Dude is a moron, that is self evident.

Good lord! Where is the short turn????
If you have a dished piston that far in the hole, your gonna be a bit soft on compression
Which poly are you interested in? There are 2 distinctly different poly engine families
