  2. Exhausts and Headers
    63 Chevy II SS hardtop. I installed CPP'S Mustang II front end and I put in a 327 with a 700r4 trans. The headers I had came out of a 69 camaro and wouldn't fit (big suprise). Anybody know what headers will give me the least amount of trouble? Thanks in advance fellas

    My 73 coupe has an aftermarket gauge claiming 50 psi of oil pressure in park, but the second you put it in reverse or drive, it drops to around 5 psi, and only climbs to around 25 at most when driving. Any ideas why? It’s been like this for a while. If I put it back into park afterwords it still...

    I'm in the process of building a 383 stroker and I ordered a set of Howard's Cam 91164N hydraulic roller lifters from Summit back in May. Unfortunately due to covid the ship date keeps getting pushed (now in November). Anybody have a recommendation for a good alternative lifter?

    Building a sbc with a hydraulic roller camshaft. Got the camshaft in, cam button, timing cover, and balancer on. Decided to do a second check of endplay. When I checked it before attaching the balancer I was within 0.005-0.010, now I'm at 0.015. not sure why but is 15 thousandths too much...

  9. 3rd Generation Chevy II/Nova's
    Hello everyone. Just started this thing up on Saturday. Due to budgetary constraints and limited time from a Navy life, it took a year and a half to complete. Hand made from start stand casters to air filter. It wasn't a perfect start, but I've at least gotten through the cam break in. I cropped...

Even plain black valve covers with the fins on...

    I just completed a swap in my 77 from a six to a 350 sbc carb. Went to fire it finally and I'm not getting any compression in any cylinders. The 350 was torn down to the block and had been rebuilt not too long ago so I don't think all the rings could be bad. Thinking its the timing gear settings...
