    Can anyone tell me if the engine main components are to be painted individually thus leaving bolts natural color, or should I paint the entire assembled engine at one time.

    Just found out that my OE block is cracked, and i need one to replace it Car was built on June 26th, heads are cast "F 19 7" or June 19th. I'd be thrilled if it was an "FC" engine code (4 bbl Powerglide) but a late May or early June Flint casting will do.

    I bought this engine to use in my '55 Two-Ten build, but I have decided to go a different direction. When I bought it I was told that it was a "fresh rebuild", but we all know that means different things to different people. So I pulled the heads and pan to see what I had. Here is what I...

    I'm looking for an original large "tombstone" exhaust heat riser valve for a 55 265 V8. The one I need has a large weight that is rectangular with a curved top and part numbers plus "GM" stamped in the face of the weight.

    I'm trying to replace worn cam & lifters in a 235 engine from a '55 truck, 3 speed overdrive trans. The old lifters appear to be the original 838774 part with a hole in the pushrod cup and a hole on the side of the lifter. Replacement mechanical lifters I've found (with or without cams) are all...

    Alright, so on the 1,120 mile trip home from nationals, my car began to experience some problems. The alternator gave out, but i replaced it.

    I have a running 327 in my 55 chevy apache that I would sell. I believe it is a late 67 engine originally from an Impala. The heads appear to be from an early 68 Camaro. The engine runs, it is still in my truck, and I have used it for 5 years. It came with the truck when I bought it so I dont...

    Right side exhaust header has a non threaded hole on the top. I've read these are used for choke controls on the carb. Do I need to plug it as the engine seems to run fine without it or add a choke to the carb (Rochester 4Jet)? the exhaust still has the heat spring valve attached. The engine...

    I'm not talking the mega- dollar Moomba or Mastercraft variety- although I would take one if I could afford it! We have a very short season here and as well, we camp a lot. Pulling a boat AND a travel trailer would always mean taking 2 vehicles. That said, I'm still on the lookout for a boat...
