Been a busy winter so far with three projects on the go and a few engines being built for them.

The first one is this all forged lightweight solid roller assembly with aluminum heads that will be going into my little blue 68 car. A fully balanced, blueprinted small block with Manley internals, Lunati 254/262 solid roller cam, CNC ported aluminum heads with Crower stainless rockers, and a Victor Junior intake. That's been topped by an AED 750HO and behind the new engine is a Lakewood Bell with Hayes Gold Clutch and a fresh M22 Super case trans. Needless to say, the car's going to need some rear suspension upgrades to keep the tires planted and that will come from Comp Trac Bars and Frame Connectors that are going in soon. The first task is to run the new engine on the test stand and get the valve train broken in and lashed while checking everything for leaks. I'll then pull the old motor out, install the rear suspension upgrades, and will wire in a new MSD system within the car. Then it's time to install the new motor and get things ready for some spring test & tune sessions around the nearby mountain twisty’ s. I love springtime with a bunch of performance goodies to test out.

Few updated pics of the new motor being assembled before some test runs.

Flywheel is backwards. You might want to fix before it goes in the car.

Car looks great!!!

That was only on there while measuring the bell housing for alignment.

I've posted some new pics too.

A few more pics of the flywheel, clutch, and bell installation. This should hook up nicely!

Added an Edelbrock pump and an SFI balancer earlier today. Now to get the old pulleys off the 68 and get it fired on the run stand.

Well...I finally pulled the drive line out of the 68 last week and got around to a test run of the new solid roller motor that will now be going into the 68. Ran it in last night and will do some more tuning later today as I dial in the carb and re-lash the valves. It will be installed soon along with a new Autogear M-22.

Engine Specs:
  • Seasoned 010 Block 4-Bolt Main
  • Fully Balanced and Blueprinted Build
  • Decked .005, Bored & Honed .060
  • Moroso Blueprinted Oil Pump w/ Pickup
  • Milodon Deep Pan w/ Windage Screen
  • GM Forged 1182 Crank Std/Std
  • Manley SMR 4340 I-Beam Rods 3/8" ARP 2000
  • Manley Platinum 4.060 2618 Forged Pistons 10.5:1
  • Lunati 40120528 Solid Roller 254/262 @ .050 582" Lift
  • Lunati Roller Lifters c/w HP Oiling
  • Trick Flow 7.900 Pushrods
  • ProMaxx 200cc Aluminum Heads 64cc Chambers
  • Manley S/D Valves with Lunati 1.450 Springs
  • Crower Stainless Roller Rockers 1.500
  • Edelbrock Victor Jr Intake
  • AED Ultra 750 HO Carburetor
  • GM Finned Cover c/w Drippers Intact

It'll make a great little screamer for the street and should pull hard through 7500 rpm on the mountain twisty's that I like to run. Let the good times roll I say.

Got a little tuning time in today. Changed the oil, re-lashed the valve train, set the carb up and got the timing dialed in a bit tighter. Runs great, no leaks anywhere and now I'll pull it down to get it into the car over the weekend. Might buzz it with open headers tomorrow just to hear how it sounds uncorked first.
