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!

1972 Buick Skylark ride
This is a video of my late brother Andrew and his 1972 Buick Skylark.
Andrew was undergoing chemo at the time this video was shot so it was one
of his last rides in the car. He had the car for 20 years and performed
all sorts of modifications on it such as rebuilding the engine, converting
the car to a five speed manual and toughening up the suspension. The car
is a Buick 350, 4 bbl and five speed. Andrew passed away on December 31st,
2006. The music is from King Crimson.
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.
