Here I am replacing the cam bearings in my small block 350 I'm building for my 1978 Nova Custom. I didn't notice until watching the video that the 2, 3, & 4 bearings were installed at the 6 o'clock position (oil feed hole pointing straight down) instead of the 5 o'clock position my GM service manual specifies.
Check out my site at http://emildavis.info for more info on my nova. I also have more videos of it in my channel.

bearing clearence, torquing all the bolts to the collect specifications,
installing the rear main seal, and demonstrating how the motor works from

Building a 350 chevy part 1
I'm building a 350ci Chevy small block for my 1978 Nova. This is the first
video about what parts are going into it. It was pulled from a 1978 Chevy
C20 but I do not know for if that was the original block. Should be making
a little over 300hp and a lot more torque, probably 350-375 ft-lbs.
This will be only part one of a series I am filming on how I assembled the
engine, put it in the car, and the tune/first firing.

Investigating Chevy 305 burning oil at idle
[[UPDATE: after wasting money on valve stem seals without fully
investigating what the issue definitely was, i finally took off the right
side valve cover which has NEVER been taken off..i found the the rear oil
drain hole (theres 2, 1 in the front 1 in the back of the head) was plugged
with fiber which is from the 10 year old air filter i had been using..so
basically the ENTIRE valve cover was filling with oil force feeding oil
into the cylinders. Goes to show, routine maintenance is not a joke..i
figured an air filter is an air filter, but i guess not lol.After 10
minutes of idling the Exhaust will
start making blue smoke and it looks kinda like "Uncle Buck" lol. It VERY
rarely smokes when i drive, only when i take off.
Replacing valve stem seals in 305 H.O. small block chevy from 1986 Monte Carlo SS
I'm putting the original 305HO back in the Monte after taking the ZZ3 out
for my Iroc project. This is mainly to make the car mobile but it may end
up tagged with this engine for a while. Previous owner reported that this
305 has over 100k miles on it and has been out of the car since 1997. He
said it smoked during startup and sure enough the valve stem seals were
worn out. Hopefully this will fix the issue.
