Edelbrock RPM Olds 455 Head Porting
The scariest thing I ever did was port a set of new Edelbrock aluminum
cylinder heads. My first attempt at porting any cylinder head. I raised
the roof .200" and dropped the floor .040". It's best to leave the floor
alone or raise it by filling with epoxy. Porting kit by Mondello.
Engine rebuild part 1
This series is available on DVD Here is the link
We are rebuilding a GM 350 5.7 engine. Now in this particular case we
are also going to upgrade the engine to a 383 6.0 This is called
building a "stroker" motor. In other words we are increasing the "stroke"
of the engine which increased the torq & horsepower.
If you are able & wanting to rebuild an engine, this video should give you
a good overview of what to do. If you are having someone else build an
engine for you, you will be able to see what's involved in the process

Basic Engine Building DVD - Chapter 25: Cylinder Block
By this time your block is disassembled and in the machine shop. One of the
most informative sections, here we take you behind the scenes to show what
goes on while your away. We show the process of align honing the main
bearing bore that is needed before anything else can be machined. Then the
block deck is leveled and machined as needed for the new head gaskets to
seat properly. And finally the cylinder walls are bored out just shy of
their new size, which will be achieved when they're honed.

After several attempts, the Mighty Fiat 850 Sedan is back to her old self
once again. After several lead changes, we had to settle for third place
after all the numbers got crunched. But, still a great showing for the
Mighty 850! I had to run against 4 Morgan's with 5 drivers, a Jensen
Healey, a Mustang, and a VW
Scricco. Lots of more powerful cars to hammer on the Fiat. John Edwards @
