    Good idea. 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...

    Happy with dyno results

    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...

    No the stp had nothing to do with this engine. That was about my truck with the lifter noise. It makes little to no noise now . No on the stp huh ?

    385 sbc dyno results

    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...

    Valve train noise after it's warmed up completely--SBC

    Yep I've seen that method used with success. I did go in another time and adjust them once more and the noise is all but gone. But im going to try the stp with ZDDP that you're suggesting.

    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...

    385 sbc dyno results

    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 . Everywhere. 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...
