Chevy, Olds, Pontiac and Buick V8 engines are not the same!
Evidently a segment of the automotive enthusiast population does not believe that the four main GM divisions had their own versions of a V8. In addition there may be people who simply never knew that fact.
In this video I show photos of a 350 cid engine from Buick, Oldsmobile, Pontiac and Chevrolet and highlight the differences in each. Buick and Pontiac V8 engines went out of production in 1980, Oldsmobile's in 1990 and of course the Chevy versions lasted a lot longer because they were cheaper to produce and easier to smog/mpg certify.
I challenge anyone to video themselves removing a Chevy SBC head and then installing it on a Pontiac, Olds or Buick engine.

Old Mercedes diesel start attempt 25 degrees
This old diesel refused to start at 40 degrees. Will it go now after a
valve adjustment and fresh synthetic oil?

Moving the Oldsmobile
Starting and moving the 1963 Oldsmobile 98. This is the first time I've
tried to move it this summer and aside from no brakes and a few leaks I
think it went pretty well.
