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.
Piston Install 283 Chevy Small Block V-8 Engine 1959 Corvette
More on our blog: www.vette59.com!
After a not-so-long-and-cold winter the project moves ahead. The new
pistons, rings and rod bearings are installed and checked by Katharine and
her dad, while rebuilding the 283 small block for their 1959 Corvette.
How to Fit V8 Hi Performance Camshaft bearings,tips,tricks and trade sercrets revealed
Aussie Heads and Race Engines show you how to fit hi performance race cam
bearings,improving cam timing,cam chain tension,oil pressure,stopping
premature camshaft wear(known problem no. 6 and no. 7 cam lobes)by
modifying oil gallery feeds. A very indepth and interesting video making it
sound and look simple,feel free to comment and like vid,even ask some
questions on anything standard or hardcore on performance modifications.
How To: Pressing Press-Fit Wrist Pins At Home
This video describes an easy method of pressing wrist pins into pistons.
This method is better than using a hydraulic press because it doesn't put
stress on any of the components.
Of course, luck would have it that the pin I was pressing for this
demonstration stopped short because I didn't have everything lined up
perfectly, so it snagged and the rod cooled before I got it the whole way
through (like I said, you have to work QUICKLY! :) No big deal though.
The particular piston/rod set I was working on at the time was a set of Evo
9 pistons and 1G 4G63 DSM rods to be put into the block that is seen behind

Variable CAM Timing

Variable CAM timing is a concept that entails changing the camshaft timing,
as needed, depending on engine LOAD demands. This technology was impossible
just a few years ago, due to the state of the art electronics needed. The
latest Variable CAM Timing (VCT) systems are infinitely variable, meaning
they have no specified settings. CAM timing can be changed or varied
instantaneously across the whole range (ie. Plus or Minus 30 degrees from
normal). By varying the CAM timing, the ECM can regulate the power curve to
meet its own needs. On any gasoline engine, each RPM setting has an optimum
CAM timing setting, depending on load. Up until a few years ago engines
were set whatever the CAM lobes were machined at. With modern VCT, this
relationship can be varied, also varying the engine's power curve. Most
modern VCT systems do not control valve lift, but do great by simply
changing open and close timing points during engine operation. See how it
works here, with this superbly animated training video on automotive
technology and variable cam timing (VCT).
