Bad shifter ,
Good eye !
Sorry to hear this Dana ,,,, I know you drive yours a lot .
Good luck on the repair,,,,,hope you get it back on the road soon .
Is your Y block down for repair?
What’s up ?
It’s a Weiand intake,,,,I’m pretty sure the center carbs will feed all the cylinders .
It’s a good idea to double check though.
My “over the top” is OT here,,,,,it misses the cut off by 5 years ,,,,,it’s in my information where I signed up though .
I can’t believe I’m still...
Like Jim said,,,,,5/16 is plenty .
Make certain you have a good regulator in there,,,,,these carbs can’t stand a lot of pressure .
Believe it or not,,,,there are some young guys on here,,,,,,,might be absolutely tickled to have old books .
And the internet is not...
If it’s fine after warm up,,,,it’s not the carb .
My 440 Tunnel Ram ,,(2-3310’s ),,was like that,,,,,,had to get to 100 degrees temp to be able...
Sorry Mike,,,,,,paint .
Put a fine coat inside,,,,,won’t hurt a thing .
Dad gum,,,,,,no numbers at all ?
Oops ,,,,LoL .

10 Lloyd’s,,,,,,you know ,,,,I believe that is the name of the guy in the commercials for beef jerky. (Just kidding.)
Like the Indian ,,,,10...
Hoosier makes a very good tire,,,,and those little nubs can be trimmed really easy .
It might take a little while,,,but still easy to do .
I’m reasonably sure it’s not in the valve train .
It’s,,,Either reciprocating assembly,,,or flexplate area .
Big Lloyd can fix it .
That is an excellent pic in post #4 you posted .
I wonder how many numbers matching blocks in extremely expensive cars have those same inline...
Great video Mart,,,,I really enjoy these shows .
That’s okay,,,,it’s still cool that you posted it again.

That’s chrome,,,,I thought it was polished .
Either way,,,it’s cool .
The reunion is still a ways off .
You can get that engine running just like...
Sorry,,,,but an actual factory broach to do production blocks is enormous .
Probably 50 feet long or better .
These machines did it...
I know the guys are just trying to help ,,,and I appreciate that .
But,,,,you know in your heart that is not a lifter noise ,,,internal...
I agree with you Danny .
The broach for a block deck is extremely long,,,,,,and has many sections of tooling assembled on the fixture .
The tooling is set on the desired...
Great,,,,I’ll have a better appetite this time,,,LoL .
Sounds like big fun then .
Make sure and keep me posted about Bowling Green,,,,,,I’m gonna be there more than a couple of hours this time,,,LoL .

A nice Mopar will bolt right in !
Hey Billy ,
You are right about the markings,,,,,,it was done with a broach,,,,,at least Mopar was .
Machine shops use a mill,,,totally different...
Don’t give up on it Lloyd ,
Some guys still do a very good job of things .
But,,,,if you see crap under the valve covers,,,,beware !
