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.

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.

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.
