That's why every threaded hole in aluminum should be heli-coiled. Should have come that way.
I hope you'll provide an update after you run em for a while. Thanks for the feedback. Cley
I am finally done, was trying for a I can't hurt anyone kinda look. It works unless you hear it running.
I'm being forced by my "engine builder" to imagine what my 340 looks like; BECAUSE HE'S HAD IT SINCE DECEMBER!! Note to self, when your engine builder has 7 big blocks under his workbench waiting to be finished, take your small block somewhere else!
Special 273 dressed ...
What oil pan are you using???

Before and after.
As of a few weeks ago.... Next month it will be a 318 with 0.030" over Wiseco Pistons at 9:1, ported Toth aluminum heads and a gasket match Edelbrock Performer intake....
Your filter setup is fantastic. What relocation kit did you use? Thanks!
Thanks. I started out with a Trans Dapt relocation kit #1113, but didn't use the hoses or push on fittings it came with. Then after fire-up, I couldn't get the Filter Bypass piece to stop leaking - crappy machining on the pipe threads. So it turns out that all I used from the kit was the piece that the filter screws on to. I just made up my own -8AN braided hoses to match my other lines under the hood. I bought a nice billet piece (Performance World #83290) that takes -10ORB to -8AN adapters. That went on the block just fine and no more leaks. If I was to do this again, I wouldn't bother with a "kit". I would just pick up a couple of nice billet pieces for the Filter Bypass and the Oil Filter mount, and again do my own -8AN hoses to connect them up. Silver cast piece: junk. Black Billet piece: nice. As far as the drip tray goes, that's just a magnetic parts tray, some 1/4" brake line and a bit of JB Weld.
Little by little. The V8 swap will happen
i thought you could run these without the plate installed on the block ?
Test fitting headers before paint under the hood. 360

Show us the entire car, please.
Mike its a 360 solid roller stroker, EFI but will dress it like 273 within reason.
