1994 Camaro Engine Rebuild
After blowing the motor on my 94 Camaro i decided to hit the junk
yard, find a new motor, rebuild and install, heres most of what i did.
1986 Chevy 305 V8 PARTIAL ENGINE OVERHAUL
***I realize I didn't need to torque the timing cover bolts down, I just
did it for the vid, also the start up at the end of the vid was NOT the
first start up.*** This is a 1986 Chevy C10. We only did a partial
overhaul, just a new cam, lifters, water pump, timing chain, gears, a new
gas tank and different 4-barrel carb was also installed, and just some
other smaller parts. Thanks for watching and please subscribe

My Camaro Loves Sea Foam
So there I am walking through Walmart in a zombie daze when I find myself
in the automotive aisle. I begin reading all the labels on the different
'Motor Treatment' products, but one stands out. Sea Foam, in it's
nondescript can, claims to reduce or eliminate engine ticks and pings while
removing carbon, gum, and buildup from high-mileage engines. I was
understandably skeptical, since this miracle in a can only cost $6.00.
After I got home, I did a little post-sale research on YouTube. To my
surprise, there are hundreds of videos praising this product. Anyway, the
next day I warmed the engine and per instructions, disconnected the Brake
Booster Vacuum Line and SLOWLY fed
the Sea Foam into the line. The engine nearly stalled several times, but
overall took it very well. I confirmed my suspicion of an Exhaust manifold leak when the fog began pouring
from the left of the engine. I shut the engine off and let it sit for 30
minutes before starting the camera and engine. You see the results. The
results were nothing short of immediate and unbelievable. Not only did the
engine idle 300% smoother, but the ticking was nearly inaudible and the
throttle response was both powerful and instant. Now, I know I am supposed
to drive it like I stole it for about ten miles after the treatment, but as
you can see, I don't yet have a plate or tags, or insurance, so that will
have to wait. Long story short. I LOVE SEA FOAM!!!!
