    turn over your engine ?

    Just finished you the Winterizing project. After all the rocker's were backed off I put a torque wrench on the engine to turn it over. Pump disconnected and alternator off; it took 41 lbs. ft of torque to turn over the 565" engine. It's a pretty cool day in El Cajon today.

    Have you ever turned your engine over with a trq. wrench ?

    You're in good company.... make that two of us. But I'm not sure how many were in

    With all of them out it was 30 ft. lbs of torque to turn over ,but it's a cool day (58*) and there's Lucas oil stabilizer in the system.

    4.6" bore, 4.25 stroke, with Total Seal zero gap rings standard tension.

    Would you like to explain ????

    Oh, because of your valve springs, got it, with mine (rocker's) bolted down it's a bunch, but I did pull about 75-80 psi open pressure off the over the nose # last year. Didn't need that much psi with the Ti intake's. I'm thinking about bumping them back up next year when I drag her to the track just in-case I need 350hp worth on Nos.

    I have an unfired 509 ( 4.500X 4.00) on the engine stand.
    If I can remember I will check it tomorrow.

    What is special about the Lucas oil stabilizer that it would make the rotation of the assembly different? More slick?

    Less slick.... it's pretty tacky, not sure how much it would add to the rotational friction but it doesn't make it easier. I put it in for the Winter so it would stay on the bearings,roller lifters and rockers. Put in two quarts and ran it for about 20 minutes a few weeks ago.

    Not even sure if it's measurable though ?
