The Jalopy Journal
Can't reach or see the casting numbers. Small damper so its probably a 2 bolt 396 or 427. I guess I'll have
to tear into it to find out for...
I have an old suburban that someone stuck a big block in but I cannot seem to identify it. The last 3 numerals stamped on the pad are 7FD. I...
Olds also used the SP ST300 trans from 63-67 in their intermediates and the 330 cu. in. powered full sized cars.
I did my 394 with the arms that came with the stand. Looked a little shaky but it worked for me.
I have used Restoration Specialties with good results. 814 467 9842 Windber PA.
The 63 manifold (3794129) has a 4 1/4x 5 5/8 bolt pattern. The 64-5 manifold (3844461) has a 5 1/4x 5 5/8 bolt pattern. Some large 4gc carbs...

A fake third pedal? That would be like putting Olds valve covers on a Chevy.
I know the custom guys won't agree with me but I think your Merc is by far the nicest one on here. Love the look and your choice of engine.
Very nice car. I had that article from Hot Rod when I started on mine. Plans were to put in a 327 365 that I had stored in the garage. My son...

Here is mine.
Any details; engine, trans, more pictures etc. thanks Bob

How about more pictures and details of your car. thanks Bob
Olds 394's never had 11.5 compression from the factory. The 345 hp Starfire had 10.5 and the 330 hp skyrocket had a little less. A 61 88 Olds...
A 59 chevy won the Daytona 500 in 1960.
That was a good episode. Olds powered rod, 56 Olds chase car and Bodericks 56 nailhead. All 2 doors even the 54 Olds in the beginning of the film.
The cam numbers do seem wrong; however the rocker arm ratio does not change the duration as is stated above.
Mark I have a 52 with an early Olds and my trunnions were bad. I had some made from a block of steel then later found some on Ebay which I...
Thanks for the video. Nice cars, nice location.
