Chuck's Camaro #2: 307 Rebuild Part 1
In this video Brent and I tear down a 327 donor engine and the 307 that was
original to the car. We then clean up the 307 block, heads, and other
engine parts. After meeting Chuck the previous owner I am renaming the
project after him. He was a total hot rodder back in the day and smoked a
lot cars. Nobody believed the Camaro had 307 in it.
Oldsmobile 307 V8 Build Part 5
Taking out the pistons led me to discover that the bearing and crank shaft
are damage far far beyond any hope of repair.
One bearing was so bad that it ate itself away, as well as the crank shaft
to a measurable degree.
I've never seen something this bad, and can't believe the owner got this
far without thinking the clunks they are hearing where bad.
Chuck's Camaro #3: 307 Rebuild Part 2
In this video we continue our rebuild of the 307 small block Chevy. Brent
was doing most of work but Ryan and I helped as well. We all had a good
time and I learned a lot. It was nice to see all the hard work of cleaning
parts payed off. Warning: this video contains some strong language.

rotors and pads on it and i need to replace the idler arm and the coolent
resevoir or aka the degas bottle haha...of course like i said in the video

Built 307 first start (Open headers)
This is the engine in my truck and I've had it torn down almost all the way
and then put a better set of heads on it (Bigger valves) Highrise intake,
new cam with a .470 lift, lifters, roller rockers, Chrome valve covers too.
I'm just building this engine up cause its what I've got, plus wll the
parts on this will fit on a 350, so I can re-use these parts for when I
build a 383 for it. By the way, the carb isn't right, I'm having it rebuilt
now. should have it back today.
Information about Oldsmobile V8 engines
In this video I talk about the "late" Oldsmobile V8 and offer tips on how
to identify them by number.
"Late" in this instance means 1964-1990. Early('49-64) Olds engines are an
entirely different block, etc.
Sometimes my info gets a bit twisted when it stays inside my head for a
while, so a correction is that '77-80 heads are 3A, not 4A. 4A heads are
Also, to clarify and avoid confusion, this...7 A is a 350 head, this...7A
is a later 307 head. You can also tell the difference easily by the ports.
Late 307 and 260 ports are half the size of any other versions.
Trivia: The Olds 403 was used in 1977-79 Pontiac Trans-Am's, but not all of
Of note...the engine in the video is painted the incorrect shade of gold,
which appears to be the Krylon generic gold. The proper shade is slightly
darker and less "glitzy"

Olds 350 motor running out of car
This is the motor that I put into my 1985 Delta 88, replacing the blown
307. It's from a 1968 Olds Delmont. It is a 350 Rocket motor, 395558 block,
5 heads, and has a TH 400 tranny bolted up to it.
How you start it out of the car you All you gotta do is run a fuel line to
the carb and the other end to a fuel can with about a gallon of gas. Run a
battery to the disturbitor, and touch the wires together for the dis and
the starter and if it runs, it will fire right up
Trudeau Park mudding aftermath - Almost dead Oldsmobile 307 before car going for scrap
Broken motor mount and fan shroud, smashed up back end, blown head gaskets,
oil full of coolant, cooling system clogged up. Lots of warning lights
going off. The car still drove itself on and off the trailer and onto the
trailer again to go to the scrapyard. The scrapyard paid me what I paid for
the car 2 years before and I put 20k miles on it with almost no repairs,
just got another Caprice to replace it as my winter car.
Old Video of my Oldsmobile Delta 88 with blown 307
It wa a sad day back in Feb. I hooked up my oil pressure gauge and started
the car, the motor made a loud bang and stalled, then it started to sound
like this. This video is VERY OLD and now the car had a 350 Olds in it.
Look at my other videos to see how the car is now!
