Re: SBC 350 + Test Stand

I cleaned and painted the intake yesterday. I also rinsed off the carb with carb cleaner. Here's what it looks like now... IMG_0321.JPG Looking a little closer, I found a broken off bolt in a boss on the front of the intake. Someone had drilled and tapped it to a smaller size. If I remember correctl...

Re: 1966 OLDS 442

This is the best part of being a hot rodder. Fixing, improving and then the TEST DRIVE where everything works as expected is the reason we do what we do. :D

Re: SBC 350 + Test Stand

Great day today so Maverick worked on the engine alone. He checked ring fit on the cylinders. Although the top, second, and oil rings all have different allowable ranges for the gaps, they all are OK at .018". So, all that's required is to check that every ring has at least .018". All OK s...

A study in contrasts

Last September, Randi and I spent a few days at the prestigious Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia. The Greenbrier offers various optional activities for their guests...horseback riding, croquet, tennis, off-road vehicle rides. More in character for us, we chose the latter. I had hopes for an advent...

Re: Spring Carlisle 2018

For you FaceBook fans, I did post an album "Spring Carlisle 2018" on FB with 33 photos. Nothing about Ice Cream on Friday night, no one would believe we ate ice cream when it was so cold. :) TRADITION! (From Fiddler on the Roof) Ice Cream at Carlisle is a tradition regardless of the weath...

Re: SBC 350 + Test Stand

While shopping for heads, I saw that the heads that we bought were advertised as 185cc heads. What the heck is that about? It's intake runner volume. So why should I care about that? This explains it quite well: http://www.racingheadservice.com/rhs/cylinder-head-runner-volume-faq/ Learning never sto...

Re: SBC 350 + Test Stand

Maverick did a calculation on the compression ratio with the new heads. I pulled this from his email: According to Summit's calculator https://www.summitracing.com/expertadviceandnews/calcsandtools/compression-calculator 72 cc heads should be fine. Compression Ratio: 9.6 : 1 Total Displacement - cub...

Re: SBC 350 + Test Stand

I just took a look at our spreadsheet for this project. As of now we have $990 in it. :shock: Wow! This stuff adds up fast. I don't know if we will make much profit on it, but only time will tell.

Hey Dave. How about explaining what a "neural net processor" is and why it's a good thing for this purpose.

SBC 350 + Test Stand

After selling his '81 El Camino, Maverick has an extra SBC engine left, so we decide to turn it into a project.

We are planning to rebuild it for resale and build an engine test stand to show buyers how well it runs.
