    engine coming out

    Well I'm pulling the engine this weekend to drop off at the machine shop.
    The owner has done alot of work for friends so I know he will give me good advise on how to rebuild. Then I will know whats under the hood. When I get it back, what color do most paint the block, intake and other bolt on parts. It came with chrome v/covers and open chrome air filter. Not looking for WoW but want more then stock.

      It's too bad about your engine
      but once you get it rebuilt you won't have to worry about it again. When I did mine I put a performer intake,slightly bigger cam, headers,600cfm carb. Made a big difference (351 2v) MB

            originally the engine would of been all blue including the valve covers and intake, just the carb and exhaust headers would of been natural colored.

                When you go through the engine do yourself a favor and degree the cam whether you re-use the existing one or replace it. When we went through mine we found the aftermarket RV cam the PO installed was WAY advanced with the new timing set. We installed the cam +2* and it degreed @ +11* - as a result we had to retard the cam 6* to get the +4* we were looking for.

                  if you are talking about my heads they are clone aluminum heads hahaha just kiddingBig Grin painted my 4v heads silver just thought it looked better
                  And when you take the engine out don't forget your digital camera,zip lock bags and a black marker. Sometimes memory just isn't good enough Idea

                      thanks now if I could get it to run perfectly it would be nice hahaha {engine is not the problem. The guys who built it did a great job. It's my ignition system giving me headaches but I'm getting there}
