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.
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.

1955 Buick Century 322 Nail head First Start & Cam Break-in
This is the first start and cam break-in of my rebuilt 55 Buick Century 322
nail-head. The NOS fuel pump lasted about 2 minutes. The box fan I was
using to cool the engine was not giving enough airflow. I had to use the
industrial fan I use for painting. The carburetor that I rebuilt about 5
years ago has some idle jets plugged up. (I must not have gotten all the
gas out of it when I put it in storage) On the plus side, no oil/water
leaks and good oil pressure.

Built 307 first start (Open headers)
This is the engine in my truck and I've had it torn down almost all the way
and then put a better set of heads on it (Bigger valves) Highrise intake,
new cam with a .470 lift, lifters, roller rockers, Chrome valve covers too.
I'm just building this engine up cause its what I've got, plus wll the
parts on this will fit on a 350, so I can re-use these parts for when I
build a 383 for it. By the way, the carb isn't right, I'm having it rebuilt
now. should have it back today.
gm 5.7 diesel 350 turbo vid. 4 of 4
This is the final of 4 videos. We all believe that we have the Timing in
the right spot. There is some views of the turbo. This engine has a turbo from a 6.5l GM diesel, and the turbo is running from both manifolds.
1955 Buick 322 Engine Pre-Lube
Giving the 322 Nailhead engine initial pre-lube before installing the
valley and valve covers. Need to make sure everything is getting oil. I
will pre-lube it again with a full 7 quarts of oil just before starting.
1970 Buick GSX Engine Rebuild - RKM Performance Center
This 455cid V8 came into the shop under the hood of a 1970 Buick GSX. When
new, the motor was capable of propelling the GSX to 13-second quarter mile
passes in stock trim. Unfortunately, this one was way past its prime. To
get this 455 back in shape, a full rebuld was called for. Technician Jon
Sipple gives us a quick overview of the process.
