Surprised they didn't hold the rpms high and steady for the break in. I read on these forums to fire my Cleveland up, go to 3000 RPM and stay there for 30 minutes to properly break in the cam. I know you have the 429, but what did you do for the cam? Did you go with a flat tappet or a roller setup?

Sounds and looks good,congrats.

WOW! Another major step completed.

Standard bore & stroke.
Sweet! Nice to see another milestone achieved in the resto. Engine & tranny look spectacular with the detailing.
