At the point of ordering my final parts before assembly and trying to decide whether I should be going towards and Fluid Damper or sticking with a stock style Dampener.

    My Achilles heel admittedly is camshaft selection. The specs of this particular engine are a 73 440 truck block, 452 heads, standard bore. Craptastic compression (8.2:1?) I just want to get it running, and healthy. It's a temporary engine at best... I've toyed with the idea of something...

    Small blocks

    In planning for the rebirth of my 69 convertible, I have come to the point of engine. The car it's self is (was) a E44 318 2 barrel car. When I purchased it, it had a 78 360 in it. I sold it and found a good used 69 318 that had previously been rebuilt. At this point I've spent too much time...

    Late model NV3500...

    Found a 5spd out of a ram fairly cheap....I don't know much about them, but is it possible to mate it to a 440? As much as I want to just do a A833 4spd, I wouldn't mind better driveability of having an O/D or 5th gear. Nick

    Questions, and lots of them.

    I'm getting to the point where I have questions for my respected fellow C Body enthusiasts. Some will be stupid, I work on fuel injection all day. Carbs and distributers I've never been taught. The girlfriend and her mom convinced me finally that a 4 barrel is the way to go for my 318. (I'm...

    Okay, using newer 318 ('85-'91)/360 ('86-'92) heads on my 318

    So I've been scowering the local yards and have only found one 1989 Power Ram that has a 360, and fairly low mileage, it happens to be in a yard that I know the owner of pretty well and he's willing to cut me a very good deal on them. Question is will these work or should I continue my search...
