GenVI build


yes these are the stock rods, I'll find the cam card and see what valves should be set at and like I said the lifters may not have been pumped up. Comp say's they should be longer but Im with you longer will make it worse.

Was wondering if I can use a stock HEI distributor on this motor? I have one and seems I'm not using any of the electronics it came with its basically a 454 with a roller cam and a carb.

I don't see why you can't other than the fact it may slow you down just a bit...I don't think the stock HEI's have the capacity to work like the MSD or Mallory distributors, but the cost factor has a lot to do with choice also!...lol

Use a stock vacuum advance HEI . if you want you can get hotter modules and coils.

I looked at msd and petronix but for half the price and I can take it back if it doesn't work I couldn't beat it. I have another one sitting here that I took out of a 77 Chevy pickup but the shaft is a little loose so I think ill make a engine primer out of it.

I put the regulator on the elcamino. It helped it some but it still fouls plugs every time I start it. I have a summit brand HEI, for an intake I have the Chinese version of the edelbrock rpm air gap. I wonder if the intake is to much for this motor. I had a edelbrock 2.0 but never used it, probably should have stuck with that. Do you guys think a hotter plug might help the fouling.

Sure worth a try after you double check the timing
