270 gmc test stand run
George's spare 270 gmc running on a stand. Engine has good oil pressure, a
nice idle, and good compression. Compression was only 5 lbs different from
the high cylinder to the low cylinder. This engine hasn't been run in a
few years. Carb still needs adjustment.
Hot Rod 292 six cylinder
This engine was a collaboration between my dad and his cousin. It's a 292,
.030 over. It's been balanced. It's got JE forged pistons that puts it at
about 10.5:1 compression. It has an Engle cam with 231 @ .050 duration and
.565 lift. The head is a lump port head by Self with Ferrea 1.94/1.6
valves, K-Motion springs, Bill Smith pushrods, and Harland Sharp 1.75

cover is a Frank pattern finned aluminum unit, and it has a custom made ATI
Super Dampner and aluminum Fidenza flywheel. The intake manifold is a

carb on it., This is going in a '37 Ford pickup with a Richmond 5 speed
Tri-power Rochester Model BC Chevy 235 Six
This is 3 carb set-up on a Chevy 235 inline Six. This intake is an
Offenhauser for the 235. The carbs are large base Rochester BC's. The
automatic choke is fed from a copper tube heat riser that extends into the
Exhaust heated base. The tube exits
the heated cavity to the atmosphere (does not pick up carbon from the Exhaust). Fuel line is plumbed entirely
in solid brass pipe.
The engine is 1959 vintage 0.60 over with the late high compression heads.
3/4 cam with mild lope can be heard in the video. Exhaust is temporarily fabbed outside the split
Fenton Exhaust manifolds...so sounds a
little odd with my little digital camera. Sounds a lot better in person!
The Find 1956 GMC V-8 Hydramatic 4X4 Truck
Here's the whole story of finding a Title and tracking down a 1956 GMC V-8
Hydramatic 4X4 truck. From the truck I found the Title in, to the prep,
loading, transport, unloading and a tour of the truck itself. Don't forget
the out-takes at the end! They also include a couple of really nice
southern Oregon scenery shots.
Junkyard Rescue! Saving a 1950 GMC Truck - Roadkill Ep. 31
One of the most incredible junkyards in the history of junk is Turner's
Auto Wrecking in Fresno, California—and on this episode of Roadkill,
Freiburger and Finnegan hit those 100 acres of vintage sheetmetal and go
spelunking for gold! After considerable debate, the guys select a 1950 GMC
shortbed truck that had been off the road for 26 years and jam to get it
running and driving for the trip home to Los Angeles. At least there was a
50-percent victory. Watch as the guys revamp the Jimmy inline six, panic
over a wrecked master cylinder, sweat their cajones off for four days, and
explore one of the greatest old-car stashes ever!
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.
