I'll get a pull .016 hot and then tighten it up .003 and see if it makes more power . But if it does make more power that doesn't necessarily mean I need a bigger cam. It just means that there's more power with more duration which is usually the case anyway. More duration is gonna...
Big power numbers there per cube man ! Nice car too .
Why do you have to swap springs ?
They're for solid roller . Right ?
What am I missing?
I've got a very similar engine but I went with the afr comp 195's.
My cam is a howards solid roller as well but 243/243 .628/.590 . I went with the...
You Joe Shermans son or somthin ??! Lol
Who gets 600 hp out of a 383 ?? Oh that's right about the top couple percentage of builders do !
Sorry if it sounds like I'm over doing it here but im not .
I'm that excited to see a build like this . CONGRATS MAN !
MAN I ALMOST...
Yeah maybe but let's see what its gonna do with the 12 to 15 degrees I've already left behind.
Engine was running on dyno at about a 230 duration. .it peaked hp 6000 like that.
The cam is 243 @050 with .0016 lash.
And that is a single pattern cam.
I didn't want more duration because I didn't...
Yes the assembler/ builder tried a few different pushrod lengths Before hitting the bulls eye .
I however did my own work on the head swap on my truck and dialed in pushrod length/geometry.
No I don't actually have a build sheet and in the defense of the guy who assembled it that was on me .
I didn't build it. .
I chose all the parts though.
I guess you could say i actually did build it just for the fact that I picked the parts but a 40 year veteran builder/ machinist put it together for me .
Thanks for the vote of confidence.
Yes I agree . I think there's still a fair amount...
On another note I called howards today to ask about lash .
Specifically about how much more or less than the recommended lash could I safely run .
Guy said 3 or maybe 4 more or less than the .016 for this cam .
Then he added and I quote " every. 001 lash changes duration about 3 degrees ...
This dyno shows the bigger carb making more power everywhere on a sb stroker. Not just high . Not just low .
Actually if you look at this he isn't specifying whether or not he used an anular booster here . Maybe it was a down leg .
Its more likely he used a down leg .
As can be...
Did I tell you about the pertronix distributor?
I bought this pertronix III at the recommendation of a few different guys . I had it on the engine for the dyno but I didn't bring a coil with me .
Dyno guy put on a round yellow accel coil on it . The engine broke up at 5000.
Then they put an msd...
Please elaborate/try and simplify the statement about the 5/16 vs the 3/8 pushrod. Now you've got me racking my brain on which pushrods I finally did end up with . I bought like 3 different sets. Bsck and forth till finally got the right length. I cannot remember length or diameter now . I...
