Buick 350 on test bench

This is a fresh rebuilt Buick 350 runnin' on my test bench.. Got 9.8:1 compression (Speed Pro hypers & moly), rebuilt heads with good portjob, 470/470 lift cam, Poston aluminium Intake, 600cfm Holley, 1968 1.6:1 aluminium rocker arms, modified oil passages, timing cover and filter housing, oil balance tube on rear side, crooved cam bores in block, double roller.....and so on. Let it run for more than 30min. with 2500rpm's to get it REALLY HOT (more than 100°C!), and to have a look on the oil pressure when running such high temps...with 15-40 standard mineral based oil..OF COURSE! Huhh...32psi..at roughly 650 rpm's..did you expect this? I DID!! Get your hands dirty and rebuild your good old Buick engine!! HE IS WORTH IT!! NOTHING pulls lika Buick engine!!

Here is the Buick 350 from previous videos. We fired the engine today and broke in the new Crower cam. Oil pressure is 20 psi at a hot idle and 40 psi at 1500 RPM. The engine sounds MEAN!!

This is a Buick Dauntless V8-350 motor that my hubby is building for his little tiny Willy's jeep. It should haul I think! :)

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.
