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!!
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.
Checking the compression on Ken's '94 Chevy truck. All cyliders except one
were between 130 and 150 PSI, one was at 85. Time for some head gaskets!
Stay tuned for the exciting sequel....

Compression Testing and What You Can Learn From It - EricTheCarGuy
Compression Testing and What You Can Learn From It - EricTheCarGuy
Here is a video on performing a compression test on an engine to assess
it's mechanical condition. An engines ability to compress air and fuel is
directly proportional to it's performance since an engine is nothing more
than an air compressor once you take away all the controls. A compression
test is a good general test that will give you an idea of the engine's
overall health but it does not give specific information on what the
problem is should there be one, for that a "leak down test" would be
required, here is a link to that video.
However if you find yourself looking for the source of a performance
problem with an engine, this is a great place to start. This test is often
overlooked in favor of looking at the fuel or ignition system, I think
that's a mistake, if an engine can't perform mechanically no amount of
electronics will make that better.

Los Hungaros Inc. bemutatja:First Start `50 BUICK FIREBALL 320ci straight 8 engine (SOLD)
SOLD!!! `50 BUICK FIREBALL 320ci straight 8 engine for sale!
I got this engine not long time ago from a friend of mine with a stock,
good running`50 Buick who was swapping in a small block Chevy. The only
reason it was pulled out from the car, because the broke down Dynaflow.
And his easiest way was to get a 350 combo.
I was going to use it in my future project, a`20`s race car replica, but
decided on a different engine.
It`s ran always GREAT before it was pulled out.No smokes, nor knocks at
all. The engine was checked under the valve cover and found absolutely
clean inside.The valve gasket has been replaced.This is the greatest
version of the FABULOUS FIREBALL EIGHT.
Attention people,This is The REAL BIG ONE , NOT a "tiny"263ci!
It is a real 320ci!!
You want something a little different for your car, here it is.
You are going to able to hear it run soon as I `m going to fire it up and
film, then post it on YouTube, and it will be attached to this EBay
It comes with the original oil bath filter, air cleaner and radiator. No
tranny comes with.
