It's an OEM Roller Cam engine
The long dowel had chewed into the timing cover which shouldn't happen as roller cams have retainer plates so don't need even a thrust button? so I don't know why it had such a long dowel? Some one enlighten me if I'm wrong please.

Image

The Cam is quite good for a computer controlled car ( Crane Powermax 2032 ) and it will stay in as my budget won't stretch to a more suitable one for my set up, they cost five billion dollars each and my budget is three haypennies and a sixpence :lol:

Image

Oil pump pickup,
I knackered an engine once because the pickup fell off so I now stick them in place with a bit of snot.
Big thanks to Roy as I turned up at his, un-anounced at a really bad time ( I mean really bad ) and he welded the pickup when it really was the last thing he needed that day

Image

And then Roy did me a super special deal on a Torque converter to try :P :P

I really have got some top mates

Image

The engine is a bit cleaner now and I have to decide whether to put my AFR heads on or my old cast iron jobs which I ported myself?

i may stick these cast irons on then I can leave this as a working unit when I take it out or I will have to take it apart again if I put the AFR ones on to build the 400

Image

I did alot of work on the exhaust ports as I used them on my nitrous engines. Intakes weren't to shabby though for an amateur with a hobby drill and 200 Marlboro blowing smoke through to get a nice cone shape round the valves :P
I ran a 10.9 with these heads on a 355 with cast pistons and stock rods
they need a bit of a clean

Cheers Badger, it's coming along but there will be a few cut corners and a throw it in and hope kind of thing :lol:

Things like the valve springs won't be up to the job, they are not roller cam springs never mind being matched to the cam but we'll see :?
