Part1 1959 Pontiac 389 resurrection for "The Find" 1956 GMC 250 Dually
I HATE PRE-ROLL ADS! YouTube can't seem to get the code right. I've reset
the defaults to NO PRE-ROLL ADS 3 times now. Sorry for the pre-rolls. I'm
still working on it. Snagged a 1959 Pontiac 389 from an hour or so away.
Pig in a poke, really, but they don't get any easier to find as time goes
on. The 56 needs a heart transplant, and 389 cubes is the biggest direct
bolt-in you can get your hands on! I don't know how many parts there will
be. Just trying to get it edited and uploaded!
Cubes... Gotta have cubes...

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
roller rockers. The oil pan is a Hamburger aluminum pan, and the timing
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
Clifford 4 barrel, with a 2" Super Sucker and currently has a Holley 750
carb on it., This is going in a '37 Ford pickup with a Richmond 5 speed

310 HP and still climbing! Torq is @275 near the start and is maintained to
nearly the end of run.
Head has 1.94/1.6 valves, bolt in intake port lumps are used. 1.75 roller
rocker arms. The block is zero decked.
Cam has 224/230 duraration @ .050 lift and .551 lift at the valves.
Intake is a Clifford
carb is a Edelbrock 500cfm
This engine is almost at the max for this carb. Any more rpm and a 600 will
need to be used.
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.
World smallest V12 engine
Apparently the builder's name is Yesus Wilder and he only used three
materials to build the engine. Stainless steel, aluminum, and bronze.
All credits to him.
Vintage Hot Rod Straight 6 [S3 Ep.11-1]
Everybody knows that the engine is a central key component to ANY Hot Rod
project. But is a V8 the only way to go? NO WAY!! Stacey shows you why. He

straight six was a force to be reckoned with in the early days of hot
rodding. After that, Stacey jumps into the tips and tricks of how to paint
your own true Kandy paint job. If you are into vintage Hot Rods, Kandy
paint, and multi-carbs? You don't need to go on a diet... you just need to
