Best Tips for Breaking in a New Camshaft
http://www.horsepowermonster.com -- The first few minutes of operation will determine the long-term survival of your flat-tappet camshaft. More agressive lobe designs, stronger valvesprings and changes to the additives in modern motor oils makes a "wiped" cam lobe much more likely than in the days of classic muscle cars. These are a few very important tips for properly breaking in your high performance flat tappet camshaft.

Sehr Performance Machine / Old School Olds.wmv
1967 Oldsmobile 403, 780cfm carb, hyd. roller cam and rockers, ported and flowed 'C' heads, ported intake and one of `Jack Engle's' original cams. This build was done as a tribute in memory of one our customers by his father and widow to hand down to his son Andrew.





403 Olds Overview
This is a shot of the 403 Olds in my '84 Cutlass. Propelled me to many 11.50s time slips. Swapped the cam out to something more streetable for prospective buyers. $3500 with lots included. Less than 50 miles on the motor...under 100 passes.

My '79 Caprice (Bought New, Been in the Family Ever Since)
One of GM's last all-new line of full-size cars, the '79 Caprice and Impala 2-doors, with their infamous "bent" window glass, were in the last year of a body style that was introduced for the 1977 model year. These "downsized" full-size cars were almost a foot shorter and 700 pounds lighter than the '76's they replaced. But, trunk space and interior room stayed the same. In one year, the 350 V8 went from being the smallest engine you could get in a big Chevy to being the largest. As big Chevys had been for years, they were traditional body-on-frame construction, but they were the first cars to be partially designed and engineered using CAD-CAM (Computer aided design-computer aided manufacturing). GM's other B-body cars, the Pontiac Catalina and Bonneville, Olds 88, and Buick LeSabre, and larger C-bodies, the Buick Electra, Olds 98 and Cadillac DeVille/Fleetwood, also got the downsizing treatment in '77. Almost a million-and-a-half full-size Chevy sedans, coupes and wagons were sold in those three years, unfortunately not enough to take back the number-one sales spot from the mid-size Olds Cutlass. The universal complaint back then was that GM had made the Chevy full-size cars TOO small. (In '77, they were only slightly longer than a "mid-size" Chevy Malibu. How times change;-) For the 1980 model year, they were mildly restyled, and that basic body lasted 11 years, until the "pregnant whale" '91-'96 models, which, along with the Buick Roadmaster, Olds Custom Cruiser and Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham (all based on the same '77-vintage chassis), were the last body-on-frame big cars GM would ever build. This one was bought new by my mom in September of 1979 for (take your heart medicine now) $7,500. Thanks to an oil shortage and subsequent doubling in the price per gallon of gas that summer, sales of full-size cars had fallen off a cliff, so she had her pick of in-stock colors and options. If you've tried to find a clean '77-79 Caprice or Impala 2-door, you know it's next to impossible. So imagine visiting City Chevrolet, a Chicago dealer that was located in a series of old multi-story warehouses, and riding the freight elevator with the salesman to one of the enclosed upper-floor new-car storage areas. There, parked nose-to-tail and mirror-to-mirror, were at least 40 Caprice and Impala 2-doors, including the rare Landau models. Too bad City routinely undercoated all its cars. (A side note: City Chevrolet supplied the City of Chicago with its Impala and Caprice cop cars until the day GM ended production.) This one was bought at the now-vanished Circle Chevrolet at 82nd and Racine. It has very few options: the 305 V8, A/C, a rear window defogger and AM/FM stereo with 8-track player and rear speakers. Mom had it Ziebarted a month after she bought it, which partially accounts for the shape it's in now. It replaced a green '68 Impala 4-door hardtop with 78,000 miles, a 307 V8, Powerglide, drum brakes all around and no A/C, bought new by my dad. In her care, this one's led a pretty sedate existence. Except for a road trip to Washington D.C. in 1980 and a period of about six months where I commuted in it to Argonne National Laboratory, no long drives. Pretty much to the grocery store, to her friends' homes, and to church. The locking wire wheel covers became necessary in 1983 after the original wheel covers kept getting stolen. Also that year, a Metra road crew dropped a load of track ballast on it as she sat under a viaduct at a stoplight. Allstate (bless them) paid for all the repairs to the body and the pitted glass and litigated with Metra for the next seven years. When she passed on a few years ago, I inherited it. I'm basically keeping it the way it is. No Corvette motor. No 22's. No thumping stereo. It needs a little body work (after 28 Chicago winters, what did you expect?), and as soon as a little more money comes in, I've got to take care of the windshield wiper motor and find a set of the original wheel covers. It just got a new brake master cylinder and fuel pump (ouch!), and winter's coming, so converting the A/C from R12 to R134 will have to wait. But other than that, it runs like a top, and the interior's in almost perfect shape. And on sunny days, it's great to pull off the cover, back it out of the garage, and drive one of the last of GM's big cars. After zipping around in my Fiero, it's like driving a Cadillac (I used to drive my uncle's '79 Coupe de Ville, and the ride wasn't much smoother than this one). As with the Fiero, master GM mechanic Dave Armstrong keeps it running right. If you're in the Chicago area, get in touch with him at (773)282-1444. He'll keep your car on the road or get it back on the road if it isn't.

OLDSMOBILE 455 W-43 EXPERIMENTAL HEMI AND OTHER EXOTIC ENGINES - THE JOHN BELTZ YEARS PHOTO TRIBUTE
John Beltz was Oldsmobile's chief engineer in 1964 and one of the prime movers of the Toronado and 442 project. Beltz was promoted to Oldsmobile general manager at age 43 in 1969 when Harold N. Metzel retired. Beltz passed away in May of 1972 from cancer at the age of 46. John Beltz is leaning on a dual fan 455 Olds and posing with other experimental Olds engines that never saw production. Here are descriptions of these engines: 1. The 0W-43 all aluminum 455 with 4 valve per cylinders, four overhead cam Weber engine. With a redline of just under 8,500rpm it was originally conceived for CAN AM racing. At 3,000rpm it put out 300hp and at 6,000rpm registered over 600hp. The top output recorded for this engine in the Lansing Dyno facility was 700 real hp at 6,800rpm. Tests were run with both carbueration and fuel injection. The block was cast from Reynolds 356 alloy and fitted with pressed-in dry steel cylinder liners for the Forged-True 12.20to 1 pistons. Billet steel connecting rods by Carillo was used along with a forged steel crank. The engine weighed in at 50 pounds lighter than the production 455 motor! It was developed at the same time as the ZL-1 Chevy 427 motor. 2. The W-43 4 valve per cylinder 455 developed by JOHN BELTZ , LLOYD GILL , JOE JONES AND FRANK BALL. Rated at 500-550hp with a single Rochester Quadrajet on an aluminum manifold. Constructed with both cast iron heads and block and with aluminum-alloy block and heads 75 pounds lighter than the conventional 455 production engine. Engine featured four valves per cylinder with narrowed angles for a super efficient combustion chamber design, central spark plugs and could easily be adapted for chain for gear driven overhead camshafts. 455 engine had 4.625inch cylinder centers, a 4.125 bore and 4.250 stroke. Making use of the 3inch main bearings and 2.50 inch rod journals, the engine was fitted with a specially prepared cast crank fitted with SAE-1140 forged steel rods, forged 10.20-to-1 pistons which rode on Morraine 400 bearings. Four bolt main block boasted 2 additional 5/8inch drain holes. Four valve heads featured 1.750inch intake valves (SAE-8640 steel) with 22 degree stems and 1.375 Exhaust (214-N stainless steel) with 15 degree stems, special Stellite seats, bronze alloy guides, o ring plug tubes, 14mm spark plugs, 3/8 inch pushrods and aluminum rocker arms. (Of all the experimental Olds engines, this one came the closest to production and there are photos of this engine in street gear. MAY 71 HOT ROD MAGAZINE features some of these engines and the sadness of the Olds engineers of that time of how they would never be released.) 3. 455 dual turbocharged CAN AM ROCKET CHALLENGE. 659hp @ 6250rpm. 554lbs torque @ 6,250 rpm. Alloy block with 4 bolt mains. Forged steel crankshaft. Forged True pistons with 8.5 to 1 compression. 3inch main journals. 2.499inch rod journals. Carillo billet steel rods. alloy heads. 2inch intake valves. 1.625inch Exhaust valves. Crower roller camshaft with 555inch lift and 320 degrees duration. Dual TRW-375-E-10 turbochargers with Boost Wastegate 10and 1/2psi. Lucas fuel injection. Olds alloy intake. Competed with big block Chevy Mclarens and Porsche Panzers in CAN AM racing circa 68-69. This video is merely a couple of old magazine pages strung together with the exception of that blue 455 hemi which was found on the internet. Thats BRUCE MCLAREN in that green can am race car which is Olds powered. AT THE BEGINNING OF THE VIDEO JOHN BELTZ IS POSING WITH SOME ENGINES FEATURED IN THE JULY 1969 ISSUE OF HOT ROD MAGAZINE AND THE BLUE OLDSMOBILE 455 HEMI WAS FEATURED IN THE MAY 1971 ISSUE OF HOT ROD MAGAZINE. The incidental music I overlayed onto this video was muted by youtube.
