Re: SBC oil pan gasket help

O.P has a one piece rear main seal, it appears OS34510T is for a 2 piece.

Thanks

Re: Stock Eliminator Manifold Question.......

My opinion, a front sump is always a disadvantage.

Thanks

Re: South America Jeep Tornado SOHC engine

Great History story Ken! Thanks Randy PS: We love history! That engine originated in 1935 as a Graham flathead 169 cu in engine, grew to 217, got taken over by Continental as a 226, back to Graham which became Frazer, then Kaiser, then Willys, and they did a SOHC conversion with slight overbore in 6...

Re: Stock and hopped Z-28 engines here..

Right on friend!! I was very involved with cars in the 1960's and owned two 302 Chevys. The first one was the complete Engine only from a wrecked 1969 Z28. I had it in a few 4 speed cars and it was a runner considering its size. Had it in one automatic trans car, a Vega, and it still was a runner. L...

Re: Stock and hopped Z-28 engines here..

I guess mine was kind of a rhetorical question. When 302 Chevys were current Ford guys didn't bother with their 302's Chevy 302's were compared to much larger offerings on the street. Not counting Boss 302's, Windsor 302's were never really relevant. But when the Fox body 5.0 came out Ford guys were...

Re: Valve float due to exhaust back pressure?

Interesting thread for me as I thought I was experiencing valve float. My SOHC 2.2 Turbo hit a wall at exactly 6,000 RPM I thought was float. I shifted at 5900 and was happy as it performed well up to that point. I didn't see any point of pushing it and got used to my 5900 red line. I had a full man...

Re: Stock and hopped Z-28 engines here..

Very interesting discussion! Fascinating to me is the differing 302 philosophies. Ford guys invested heavily in developing their little 302. Chevy guys didn't much bother, mostly moving up to 350-400's Seems like shock towers played a part in many decisions. But we know the right answer!! Thanks Randy

Re: Cleaning out the garage...

Please post some progress pics if you can. I need some inspiration as I'm trying to do the same thing. A stroke knocked the wind out of me and organizing is pretty tough. Not complaining, I'm luckier than many but needing some inspiration. 2 dump loads and one scrap metal run barely put a dent in it...

Re: Stock Eliminator secrets?

Mr Nyhus, your Nova is brilliant!! I grew up in the Super Car era and bought and sold many. The 1968-72 Nova was my all time favorite although mostly SS models. The 327 versions were unheard of in my area, similar to the 1969 LM-1 This alone makes your 1968 L-30 Nova a Stock Eliminator secret! Thank...

Timing belt seems sufficient on some OHC 4 cylinder Engines?

Re: My next debate: origins of the canted valve Ford cylinder head.

The Plymouth Weslake Engine was often called an OHC or DOHC.

Many articles are still floating around the internet stating this.

In fact it was a push rod Engine.

Thanks
Randy
