    Actually it is a 73, the year the script valve covers were used. Here is the 83 Canadian non CCC 800 cfm Qjet.

    That will have the very agressive swirl port timing curve, it may be too much for 9.5 to 1. Also that duration may be too much without a custom prom. What is the LSA on that cam? That should haul ass. You will need upgrades in the TH2004R trans and consider a 8.5" out of a Caprice with better...

    My 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass S

    I think the 9 to 1 with 1970 #6 heads and custom cam with stay in the 70S, just matches better. I do have to change the oil pan on my current 350. When it fell, it broke the weld off the inner drain pan nut. The 2004R I picked up was rebuilt at some point, it will get a 2300 stall, Transgo Pump...

    Since my daughter will be driving it, I decided it will be getting the stock 350. Well, I went and got the motor, it is actually a 1974, corporate blue and say Oldsmobile on the valve covers. The guy said he thought it was a good running 307 then he checked the block numbers. I turned the motor...

    Well, it looks I will pulling the pan off this 350. When it fell, I had the drain only half tightened. It actually broke the nut inside the pan. I do have another slightly dented pan, actually came on this 350. This 350 is a stock 76 short block, 214/214 .472/.472 custom cam on a 110 LSA, I...

    My 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass S

    I the 350 out months back. Well, I may have a line on a 1975 Olds 350 attached to a working 2004R trans. Should easily give 20+ mpg, keep the car mobile. Plus 200 hp beats the hell out the 100 hp turd 260, just couldn't stomach putting it back in anything. I still plan on building the 424, not...

    1985 computer delete?

    I assume it has a 2004R trans? Add a trans cooler and add a controller or toggle switch to lock up the torque converter.

    Brought some Grade 8 fasteners to use when lifting the Olds 350. I will also use two on each end. Cutlassefi, will be sending my parts this week, so at a standstill till then. I will get the kids to help me push it in the garage this weekend.

    Well I was wondering why intake gaskets were pushing oil up to the top of the intake? Well they weren't, this is where the leak came from. Well, here is the fix, Permatex Cold Weld. Their version of JB Weld, works very well. This is what happens when a rocker arm is set too tight. I over...

    New John Luc Picard series and Star Trek direction in general

    Sorry, my tablet was on the fritz. I liked the second episode, critics have called it CSI: Picard. He has to figure out the mystery, so yeah he had to do some investigating, duh. No cameos either. I say this show has a great blend of old and new, liking it as well. What are your thoughts on the...

    New John Luc Picard series and Star Trek direction in general

    Well, I really liked the first episode of Picard and most critics did as well. Same Picard in a very different future, not a bad premise.

    Another 403

    Big problem is the swirl port timing tables, super aggressive. Plus the carb is very lean on the primary side and secondary side. The secondary can easily be fixed, primary not so easy.

    Ignition spark

    Check everything over good. Is the ground strap attached to the coil? Maybe a module? I have had more than one pick up coil die in the HEI's. New distributors are around $30 and we'll made for the price.

    SBO Holley Street Dominator

    Yeah, the BBD version also tested near to top on the dyno, very good down low for a single plane and very good higher up. I know Cutlassefi likes the BBO version. Copper Cutlass runs low 12's with one on his 350 in his 72. Shanghai Smith ran similar with a 403 in a G body Cutlass. It is a good...

    What did you do to your Olds powered vehicle today?

    Nice, good job on the undercoat when almost new. Slightly mismatched paint is better than primer, been there. Yes, the X pipe tucks under the single hump. The lowest spot for pipes is to give the oil filter clearance. Minor contact on big bumps but my car has soft springs and sits fairly low.

    SBO Holley Street Dominator

    The RPM is better than either, best of both worlds, long, reasonable diameter, sweeping runners, 2" longer than the Performer and a dual plane design to retain low rpm torque. As far as I know, the Holley Street Dominator only is one design, maybe thinking Strip Dominator? There is a SBO and BBO...

    Head bolts

    Not that I know of but the stock bolts hold up fine on anything but a diesel. It is a problem, you could replace all the bolts with ARP except the bolts with the built in studs.
