    Idiot Light

    Who's using their low oil pressure light with a high volume oil pump? Reason that I ask is I had a 383 years ago, installed a high volume oil pump and blew the sending unit apart. This was a guage sending unit with the larger "can" looking unit. This application would be for a light "small"...

    727 Trans or Torque Converter Sound

    I'll start off saying, I hate these kind of threads and here I am starting one. It's very hard to describe what's going on without being there in person but I'll do the best that I can. Driving my '62 Polara, 440ci. with the original pushbutton transmission (rebuilt), I'm noticing a harmonic...

    I'm Thinking I Should be Getting More Oil

    Fired up the 440 today and I'm just going over different things. This engine has the cam broke in but hasn't seen any asphalt yet. Oil pressure is 40 lbs at idle and off idle will go to 80 lbs. I thought I would pull the valve cover fill cap and see what kind of oil I am getting to the rockers...

    A Couple of Questions About Your Rear Ends

    I was installing my 8 3/4 third member today. Looked up the torque specs on my phone and the first thing I see is a thread asking about the torque. "A Bodies thread, and the op states that he has broken off two studs at 45 ft. lbs. The rest join in with 35 lbs is fine or just tighten them up...

    Questions on Lifters

    When I bought the Summit K6401 cam, it came with the KT 2011 lifters. I just realized they are for oiling type push rods. Can you use these with solid type push rods? Also I can not find any specs on what size ball is recommended for these. 5/16 or 3/8. TIA

    Valve Seals

    I'm doing a valve spring replacement on a set of 452 heads. I've already done the machine work for the positive stop seals. Reading info here and there, some are leaving the seals off of the exhaust valve. The fact being, the ps seals do such a good job and the valve doesn't get lubrication...

    Valve Spring / Rocker Clearance

    I'm wondering about the recommended valve springs for my Summit 6401 (911 Comp Cams valve spring) having enough clearance with my adjustable Crane rockers. The O.D. of these springs are 1.525 and it looks like they might be a little tight. Looking for any input on someone useing this combo...

    Measuring Pushrod Lenth

    Did my measuring for pushrod lenth and came up with 9.00, outside of cup to end of ball end. Summit has one that measures 9.030. That should work just fine. So I receive them today and they measure 9.200 from outside of cup to end of the ball. Too long! So I guess Comp Cam measures to the...

    727 Trans / Condition?

    I have the early 727, ('62) and was wondering if there is a way to tell the condition of it without doing a total teardown? It seemed to operate ok when I first bought the car. There isn't any leaks. Just cutting corners at the moment due to lack of funds. Planning on doing a rebuild in the...

    Rocker Arm Location

    I was mocking up some parts and noticed some inconsistencies on these Crane adjustable rockers, not being centered. Can you take some material off the sides to center them or just install the valve covers and forget about it? Also where the guide clips under the mounting bolts comes in contact...
