Putting the finishing touches on the new power plant for the 66. Hope to fire it up in the next few weeks. The before and after pics attached.
1966 SD 396 4Spd
Numbers don't match! Especially HP and ET. http://www.cardomain.com/ride/496943
Looking good I think I have some GM black wires here for it... Is is a Chevy or Canadian Pontiac engine?
Thanks guys. It's a combination actually. 454 40 over botton end with 66 closed chamber 396 heads. Lots of goodies in there too.
I went with an xe268 flat tappet from comp cams. The headers are hooker 2 inch and crane roller rockers, an air gap intake just fits under the hood with a three air filter. It's the nervous time now just needs antifreeze tranny oil and a warmer day. No plans on going to the track but never say never.. beautiful car you have.
No hasn't run yet lol.. the block was rebuilt about 5 k ago. So it's just the cam really. Heads have been updated with hardened seats and new guides etc. Soon as I get a warmer day I'll get it fired.
The Pistons are dished with about .020 thou p2d and compression of mid 8s stock rebuilt truck block. So with the closed chamber 98cc heads should have a low to mid 9s compression. It's the best I could get without changing the Pistons and it keeps some part of it a 66 lol. When did you restore your 67
