  1. Thanks for the support. I already figured it out 👍🏼
  2. Thanks I’ll be contacting arp tomorrow. do you have any idea about the rings? If the pistons have 0.030 marked on them could that means that the rings are the same size 0.030?
  3. Hello guys, what happened is that I put a new set of felpro performance head gaskets on my s c 350 and I found some antifreeze in the oil again. I removed the left side and it was very tight, however the right side came off very easy, they both were tightened to 70lbs. As the block is a good wrench and the heads are the edelbrock 6073 aluminum . This time I would like to replace the pistons rings, the pistons have marked 0.030 on them, are the rings the same size 0.030? Now if i tighten the heads studs on a cold engine and then repeat it on a warm engine could this prevent the heads from getting loose? I have arp studs and I don’t really know which ones I have. As they just have the arp letters Imprinted on the head. Should I replace them? Your help is appreciated.
  4. Hello, I just wanted to thank everyone for all your support and suggestions, I did narrowed things down and it was the camshaft, I already replaced it and added a new timing chainsaw well, the car operates well now, I know is a long journey but the car has everything operational, I just need to open a new trend about a good radiator. Best regards.
  5. Hello guys,the distributor was tested and it’s in good working condition, however I found out that timing chain is loose, so I’m going to replace the timing chains. The camshaft is also damaged, so I would like to get the best camshaft available for my engine, google tells me that COMP Cams CL12-600-4. But I would like to get the best for my application, as I have mentioned before I have 6073 edelbrock heads they’re 195cc Intake Runner Volume however it was previously ported out so it could be higher. performer 2101 exhaust manifold, 700R4 4 speed overdrive transmission, hooker headers.. what else is needed as basic information FYI I’ll be using a Holley 4150 670cfm street avenger carburetor, (I’m replacing the 1406 edelbrock carb.) (the reason why I asked all these questions is due that the mechanic just do the labor, so I have to do the research and get the parts ready for him, so the next time he comes he can work on the car.) thanks for your help.
  6. I apologize, was diagnosed with Giulian-barrel, and Miller-fisher syndrome, kinda like stroke, I had to relearn how to write and many other things, I delete the posts.
  7. Hello guys I this is an old tread, I already rebuilt the engine and it worked good, I took the heads to machine shop for a rebuilt (it was a blown head gasket antifreeze got mixed with the oil)however I decided to change the distributor harness because it was kinda loose, so because the wires were a lil different to the stock one I decided to adapt it, and soldered the wires, after the mechanic put it on time it started right up. I went for a ride and the car was running really good, the problem is that while driving i heard a big sound by the distributor and smoke coming behind the car ,I know I didn’t have much fuel as I was on my way to a gas station, then my dad decided to bring me gas and put some on the carburetor, it was causing a lot of flames, I towed the car back home and the mechanic opened the distributor but it looks good but it makes a noise when I am trying to start the engine, and the fuel comes right up the carburetor, like explosion the mechanic checked inside the engine by the distributor and looks very clean and the rotor it gets aligned all the time, he thinks it might be the timing chain, now it won’t start, he said. The distributor rotor doesn’t turn the way it supposed to, I’ll record it next time he tries to start it.he is coming next Tuesday so I am getting a new distributor and have it handy just in case that’s the problem. now the golden question.... which distributor is better for my application it’s a good wrench gen 1 4 bolt pre 1985, edelbrock 6073 heads,edelbrock performer intec, 1406 carb, I was looking into ACDelco 93440806, MSD8362, or autozone Duralast Gold New Distributor BDLG-GM08 just because I have $50 store credit(could use it on oil change though) I want to get the best option for the money, budget is around $200s, spans do you guys have any idea or suggestions about what could be related to my problem? thanks guys for your support on this matter. Sorry guys for the Rocky. FullSizeRender.mov

  9. thanks for your wishes. The previous picture shows a lot of carbon buildup on the pistons.I did looked out for a mechanic but he gave me wrong information on how to remove the heads, however it ok as I like to think out of the box and was able to send the heads to a machine shop. Can’t wait to get the heads back and put them back on the car, I am getting a digital torque wrench so I can put them back using proper procedures.
  10. Hello guys, I Also decided and was brave enough to take off the heads (LoL) and found out that there was in deed coolant mixed with the oil. I already sent the heads to a machine shop for a rebuild. A mechanic told me that my crankshaft sounds like a 383 stroker, the pistons has 0.030 written on them and I did a research and shows that a 195cc inner runner volume and 70cc combustion chamber was enough for that type of engine. Could you confirm that? I am going on a 383 direction, it has an edelbrock 1406 and I was told that with spreas modification ( carburetor jet kit) can improve its performance and cfm ratio, as it’s only 600 cfm , it’s in great shape though or should I get a bigger carb? Thanks for all your support. Shows rust like in the holes closer to the distributor . This how the pistons looks before and after i cleaned them out as you see the pistons have 0.030 on them.
  11. Thanks guys for all your support. I went and rented the compression tester gauge set and I’ll keep posting as I go through this process. And there’s a closer picture of the part I was talking about.
  12. Sorry for the Newby questions. Could you please tell me what is that and the purpose?
  13. Thanks for your reply I don’t have much experience as a mechanic, everything I am doing is based on research and google, I had made many mistakes using you tube as sometimes they explain things as if you were knowledgeable of mechanics, I got the idea of the coolant in the engine as in the video if you look at the left lower corner of the heads looks like there is some coolant or water with the oil, and base on what I was told in the past I assumed antifreeze was getting in the engine mixing with oil, I’ll check the oil and see if there’s any mixtures, it still has the oil the previous owner put into the car, when I looked in to the oil it was good texture and color but he could of have changed the oil to sell the car for a higher price. Also I moved the distributor and it might be out of time as I watched a video on YouTube on scratching the distributor rotor makes better contact and better spark. But my main concern is the engine and the mechanics that always try to rip you off.
