What a long day (Turkey dinner this afternoon didn't help either LOL)

This is what I am doing...

I am putting in another TH400 w/brake and 4500 stall converter

447" 427 Big Block
Changing cam to solid roller .660/.666 lift and 254/260 @ .050 on 106
Changing 290 cast oval port for 291 cast rectangular port 2.25/1.880
Compression is 10.5-11.0 I think it's closer to 11.0(after heads come off I can re-calculate again)
4.10
750 Proform and Victor Jr.
All the same MSD stuff as before

275/60/15 M/T ET Street Radials
No Cal Tracs yet but full length CE slappers
90/10's and Moroso Trick Springs in front 50/50's and multi leafs in the rear
3480 w/o my fat ***** @ 250 and dropping.


I should have the cam out and the pan off tomorrow.
I'll need to get my buddy's degree wheel, clean everything up.
I'll be slapping the cam in this week and getting it all lined up. My head guy added +.100 longer valves so I will have to check my rocker geomitry, and figure my compression ratio.

I have to order my gaskets and head and intake manifold bolts. I'll post as I move along...

:D:D:D

Ok here are 3 to start with, tomorrow I will do a side by side of the oval vs the rectangular head.
Then as I move along some of the other stuff.
I don't know if you'll be able to see but the #3 and #5 ingested something years ago.
20 years ago I just did a slight hone to get the new rings to seat.
There is already alot of clearence between the piston and cylinder and she makes a little noise till she's warmed up.
Most of the hone marks are still there but the bottom and top of the walls lack the hone marks a little.
But the good news is there is still NO ridge at all.





PS These heads will be for sale after the car is back together. I had a lot of interest in them when I mentioned that they would be for sale some months ago.

Ok Here is the Ed Pink nitrited, ground, welded, polished and crank and dimple rods and Arais pistons from the bottom, with a nicely worn timing chain. I knew I held on to this baby for a reason.

Now to identify the old Isky solid cam.

Enjoy!
