Starting an old 283 chevy engine part 1

My son rebuilt this engine in highschool about 15 years ago. We put this in a 67 chev pickup and ran it till the truck rusted away. I junked the truck out and saved the engine. It was sitting in my shed in my way for about 5 years now so I decided to set it outside. So I'm starting it up before I tarp it up for now. Its got about 35,000 miles on it since the rebuild. It has a some what of a high lift cam in, but I don't remember what he put in it.

It was rebuilt and stored for 5 years with a total of maybe 10k miles on it (just broken in). Here we resurrect it from it's hibernation. It's been bored .030" over with flat top pistons and a 292 cam. She's got some thump!

Abandoned Old Truck Breathes New Life.
This 1965 Ford F100 was abandoned on the property I bought about 10 years ago.. We didn't think it would run or anything, as it was pretty rough looking, just sitting under some trees.. It appears to have never been tampered with, and it is all there,. It's a short bed, short wheelbase fleetside Custom Cab, and is worth saving.. We were surprised the engine purrs like a kitten, and doesn't smoke and.. We found out the previous owner was an old man (he died) that changed oil in all his vehicles every 1,000 miles, religiously.. The shifter needs work, and there are no brakes, but we will take care of that at a later date.

Old start, Ford flathead V8, John Deere rat rod update
.After 3 years of not finishing this project I thought I'd try and get at it again with a whole new concept. A Ford flathead V8 heart and running gear. I think this will be much better for driving on the road. Probly will never finish it, but at least I'm working on it again.





Supercharged 283 chevy
283 supercharged sbc .030 over, 12% overdriven, Rhs heads, Lunati solid flat tappet 632 lift, balanced, forged, two 600 holleys. Engine has to be partly taken apart later to be painted and finish polishing, just wanted to hear it, while I am getting my 57 chevy ready. I also have a 458 c.i. set up like this small block but gas will be a little cheaper besides this little fast reving sbc sounds really kool, I think I am going to like it. Engine built by G&M Automtive, Thanks Mikey.
