Just make sure you don't get any heavier on them Valve Springs then you need to . Set them Valves Dead on . And use a carb and Dist that you know is Trouble Free when you Fire it off for the break in . Even if you have a slight Leak run it till the camshaft break in time is finished . Use a House Fan in Front of your radiator to add in keeping it Cool . I might be installing My camshaft into my 327 today as well .

I know what's you Mean Bud nod.gif It gets even worse as you get older and have even more stuff on your Plate .

Today I was trying to hook up my Street Exhaust on My Monte Carlo . Nothing was going right and the jerk next store started up another Giant Fire no I got out from under my car and Mother F-ed that Clown after throwing some 2x4's He's a Punk azz . But Quick he got his Water Hose out and died it out . I told him that's the Last Time !

Ya with Fire comes Smoke that's why I come un-Glued when re Light up them Fires + He uses Lot of Gas to Kick them off . I Heard this one go wolf !


Hey you think I don't get worried about building all the Junk I have over Here . That Truck engine swap was not so easy and I never have Help with any of my work ! No one ever wanted to Learn or hang out to hear an Engine Fire up . Sometimes it's better that why you get some of that work done quicker .

Just jump on that Job . Before you know it you will be sitting back all done and not even remember doing that work .

i did a couple of things. i just dont dfo them often enought og et fast and not double think myself?

tomorrow my racer buddy is going to come over and we should have the motor assembled the rest of the way and sat in the car by tomorrow night. im just picky about having everything right. haha. i took that roller cam out of the 355 what a shame? would of been nice to keep it in there oh well.

tomorrow the schneider cam is going in, the heads will go on it, the intake and carb and sit it in there.

Before you know it . That Engine will be up and Running pushing your car down the Track . Heck that Little 301 did a Darn good Job with G.M Iron Heads and a Flat Tappet . This 350 will do even better nod.gif
