    Default The ad said "fresh motor".....

    I should really know better by now....LOL

    Best cylinder outta 8



    hard to see in this pic, but the chamfers on the top shell was facing opposite the chamfer on the bottom shell...most were on the same side of the rod, but facing the wrong way...LOL....Luckily it worked out OK, since the crank was a cast CAT unit with a small radius instead of the forged 4130 crank with a big radius that he said it had..



    the "NEW" 13:1 gas ported venolia pistons...what a waste. This is one of the worst...



    "Autolite Racing Plugs"....too bad they're for iron heads




    RACE READY from Byram Mississippi. If anyone knows a guy named Brent who lives there...Please politely tell him to kiss my ass.




    Can anyone ID this cam at least?...looks to be about the only thing not fawked up...

    Guessing on a couple of things on the cam, but it probably a 306/311 duration intake/exhaust. the R9 makes me think its a Comp. But couldn't find anything with the those exact numbers in comps listings. The only way you could get the bearings like that is if you had 2 uppers or 2 lowers on the same rod. Guy probably just opened the boxes and dumped them on a table, I mean dirt floor. And I thought the guy who assembled the FE on Steelcomps thread was a butcher. But hey, better the plug be too short that too long

    The cam is actually in good shape...I think that's some oil and fingerprints or something that makes it look chewed on.

    I'm amazed that anyone sharp enough to grind cams would stamp and displace material in the surface that the cam gear mates too though.

    What's the B C stand for...Bullett Cams?

    Thats why I asked that question in my previous post. Its paramount to stamping the mating surface of your main caps. How does the cam gear sit flat on the face?

    I hope that isn't a Bullett. If it is, I'm more than a little disappointed.

    I failed to check cam gear runout when I disassembled...and was a bit to frustrated with stuff last night to really care.

    Although it does go to show you....always assume everything is fawked up, and check everything...like cam gear runout....LOL. One more thing on the list of stuff to check during engine assembly.

    Just got off the phone with Bullet...this is a Bullet Cam...an old one though, not like that makes much difference.

    Specs are:

    Lift
    In - .706
    Ex - .697
    Duration
    In - 268° @ .050
    Ex - 275° @ .050
    Lobe Sep - 109°
    Intake Cent. - 105°

    Think this would run good in a 10.5 489 w/ Dart 310 heads and a 1050 dominator?

    "fresh" water.

    It came in this boat...

    How much did it cost? Too much, but it's a T-deck tunnel, and that's what I wanted.

    Bottom Pic, it's a SWTD bottom with the Formula 19 top on it...made in texas by Eddies.





    If I had the choice to sit here boatless or home and slap it back together, I'd hone it and slap it back together. The pistons will probably be OK with 0.005" or so wall clearance. Side loads are high though with stock lenght rods. They should have at least went .250 long on the rods on this build.

    I've got another motor that I can put together, so the plan was to sell this one...but I can't consciously sell this to anyone...it's a piece of $hit.
