This is the first start up of my 383 small block that I built and installed
in my 68 Camaro. The
bottom end is a stroker kit that I purchased from Speedo Motive. Heads are
from AFR, intake is an Edelbrock super victor knock off, carb is a Mighty
Demond 750, MSD ignition system and Headmen headers. Cam specs are my
little secret. I built this engine to compete with a Shelby GT 500 that my
ex boss owns. He always chickend-out so we never raced but the offer still
stands if he ever gets the balls!

Basic Engine Building DVD - Chapter 17: Pistons

rod caps. You'll also get to see the crankshaft, rod bearings and journals
for the first time and inspect them for damage as they come out. Great tips
on protecting the cylinder bore while removing the pistons and connecting
rods. We don't recommend using a ridge reamer to make this easier. As your
block will need to go the a machine shop anyway. They are likely to damage
your cylinder walls and are hard to use.

This is the video of a 7 month build. The car is a 1973 Maverick Grabber.
The engine is a 332 Scat Stroker with Dart aluminum heads, roller cam, 10:1

Many other modifications including 4 wheel disc brake conversion, 380 posi,

for the first time on January 31st. There were some initial problems with
the carburetor. We could not get it to idle initially. After several
attempts to adjust the carb., we switched it out, and put the old carb on.
The problems were solved, but we ran out of video tape. More to come....
