What happens sometimes is that the wires which go to the pickup coil inside of the distributor break. Remember that they flex every time the vacuum advance moves the timing and over time they can...

This engine has a totally stock pump and it goes to show how much volume it really has that normally leaks away by either oiling the valvetrain excessively or escaping around the lifter bores. When...

They came with 5/16 pushrods that are not hardened and can't be used with guide plates. The heads use the valvestem guided "rail" rockers which will probably work ok with that cam as long as they...

If it were my engine for this sort of application I would probably just use a cast rebuilder piston. Who cares if its heavier than a forging the engine isn't going to rev high enough for the mass of...

I think that the "holes" which really matter are the bearing clearances which must receive oil followed by all of the leaks in the system. The hole going into the block is very large when compared...

A high volume pump is completely unnecessary on just about any engine and the real trick is to simply build it with the correct clearances and reduce any unnecessary leaks in the system.

Those are not necessary and it's not a good idea to cut back on the oiling to the cam bearings anyway. At 600 horsepower I don't think I'd sweat using the stock caps all that much but getting there...

If the block was made before about 1972 the KB piston will be above deck by a few thousandths which may or may not cause any problems.

I've built an engine for a Ford F700 truck with EFI but that engine was a 429 Lima not a 460. With that said the engine had the very heavy duty 429 Lima forged steel crankshaft which could be useful.

When you go down in altitude you go up not down on jet size because the air is more dense at lower altitudes. It won't be a drastic difference in 1000ft about 1 jet size or so given the same...

I'd just buy a kit from Holley. New gaskets, power valves if it has them, needles and seats and you'll be good as new.

A Holley carburetor is a very simple piece that's very easy to rebuild. You shouldn't have any problems freshening up the carburetor and installing a kit.

I think that bearing might be starting to delaminate/peel. That usually happens from corrosion.
