    Update: Flattened some cam lobes. New cam and lifters going in. I can't afford roller! All the labor covered by them. We are also going to install a limiter as insurance and a rpm tach. Growing pains lol

    Yes Block is a '58 872 (plug cooling blocked) Head is a 791 I'd love to know which car it originated from in Canada, as the head covers had the little lip for holding the wires.

    That part I don't know! Will find out once the motor is open I guess! Hopefully it's nothing

    Don, So as it happens, when the linkage got stuck upon firing the motor that one time, the high revs bent pushrods, which were changed for free since they are the ones that had set up the linkage in the first place. Don't ask!!!!!! That hurt the lifters. Hope this is all making sense to you...

    Pretty sure my Canadian passenger 348 W came out of a Pontiac??? So "Turbo Thrust" - 250HP I added the 3x2 therefore making it a "Super Turbo Thrust" or "Tri-Power" Pontiac Edition - 280 (well 275)...LOL :D:dunno It was out of a Catalina if I'm not mistaking!! Correct me if I'm wrong :)

    Had an amazing cruise. Almost 4 hours long. I shook her down. Plenty of highway time, running 100 kmh+ I pulled the #6 plug and must sadly report that it started looking pretty wet and gummed up. Spoke to my motor builder and advised him, along with other symptoms such as the RPMs not decreasing...
