  1. Olds 307 and 403

    Another 403

    Yeah, I ran that Melling cam in a 350 and 403, both ran fine, same specs as the Performer. I didn't degree that cam, the Erson from Cutlassefi was within 1/2 a degree. My Cloyes Street roller timing set was accurate but sloppy. A few others found them off a few degrees and sloppy like mine...

    Another 403

    Yah, some of the 403's had the solid balancers, not a good idea IMHO. One of the famous 403 carnage pics have that balancer. I ran the Performer cam in a low compression 403, it did fine. Plenty fun on the street but only ran a 9.7 in the 1/8. How far in the hole are those pistons? Should be fun...

    Not exactly a car guy.

    That was brutal, he did get fired for it.

    HELP 394 PLEASE HELP!!!

    Are the water pumps interchangeable? I would think they are. Most of us know the second gen Olds V8's which have FOUR different length water pumps which mean different pulleys go with the matched length water pump. I would think a new replacement or your current water pump off the old 394 will...

    My 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass S

    I have been able to get the washer working so I ran a separate toggle switch and cut a hole in my washer bottle to fit the 96 Toyota Tercel washer motor in. I had it from the cracked washer bottle I had. I see Canadian Tire has a very similar universal pump if it ever dies. It works great, wired...

    Self-Inflicted Wound

    Number 8 looks oily. Is #2 kind of carboned up? I think some guide measurement is in order.

    Fluid Film!

    One place it is definitely effective is battery terminals. My daughter pointed out how the battery looked on her car, I told her it is to stop corrosion. It does keep them from getting green better than white grease.

    Fluid Film!

    I believe I tried it one winter, it seemed to work fairly well. I also used Amsoil coating. Rust is tough to stop, don't know if anything helps.

    Funny stuff found on the internet

    That is a long hair mini Dachshund. I have three females.

    Self-Inflicted Wound

    I used snap gauges with micrometers. My guess is your shop set the center guides to tight. Which cylinder has the contact?
