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.
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
'72 Cutlass First startup
This is the first time firing the engine after rebuilding it. Its an olds
350 rocket, but will later be replaced with a 455 after its built. No
cooling system or transmission lines are hooked up, so thats why we didn't
let it run long
86 olds cutlass
This will be my project car.. It's half paid off on this video so I could
only collect parts. The parts that were off were the intake, carb, fan,
alt, air cleaner, radiator and distributor....... The car has just over 3
thousand miles on it. It was a 1 owner car who bought it new and died......
The car was repo'd and on the lot it was broken into by some kids... They
tried stealing the parts and broke out the small window on the drivers
side. They were caught and arrested. The cops put the parts in the back
''trunk''... now it's up to me to do the timing and install the parts that
were taken off... lots of hoses were cut but the wires seem to be all
intact. I dont know if anything else is missing....... it will take some
cleaning and some time... PLEASE VOICE YOUR MIND ON THE 307 OLDS ENGINE!!
TELL ME EVERYTHING YOU KNOW ABOUT VACCUME DIAGRAMS AND ANYTHING MENTIONING
TIMING, SPARKPLUG ORDER ON DISTRIBUTOR, PISTON ORDER, HOSE'S ANYTHING FOR
THE STOCK 307 THANKS!
OLDSMOBILE - The 1st Generation Rocket V8s Part 3 of 3
THE FIRST GENERATION ROCKET V8 BLOCK was produced from 1949-64. It started
as a 303 in 1949, then grew to a 324, then a 371--(which also came in a
special J2 Rocket version that came out in 1957), and finished off with
it's largest displacement---a 394 that came out in 1959 (the 394 was
produced until 1964). But after the 394 in 1959, the lastly developed
engine of this "first generation era" was a special smaller lighter 215v8
with a turbo charger produced in the
early 60s. The first intermediate sized musclecar came in 1964 "The Pontiac
GTO". But prior to the Intermediate sized musclecars, the early 50s
OLDSMOBILE ROCKETS can strongly be argued as being THE FIRST MUSCLE CAR
(especially the 88's because they were a few hundred pounds lighter than a
98). My dad was blessed with getting a 303v8 1950 Olds 4dr 88 handed down
to him in 1955 when my Grandpa got a new 55 Olds.

the 307 V-8, with a 4-barrel carb. Made out of the Oldsmobile division vin.
code-"Y". The 307 is a better built motor then the 305 made by the Chevy

1986 Olds Cutlass Supreme - 455 Engine Knock
I have about 8,000 miles on this engine build and have developed a bit of a
kock. It started within in the past 50 miles and I havn't driven it since
it started. I am not sure what could be causing this. I am running 5W-30
oil and have also tried 10W-30 (both Synthetic) with a Bosch oil filter.
Oil is at the correct level with the stock oil pan. temp, water and engine
RPM are shown at the beginning of the video. What could be causing this??
Cold Start Buick LeSabre 307 V8 (reuploaded)
Reuploaded Buick Video...ike most Oldsmobile engines, this is widely
regarded as a durable workhorse engine, hard to kill without applying undue
abuse. Reasonable uses and reliable maintenance such as consistent oil
changes and basic tune-ups may be expected to give a long engine life. The
307 is quite capable of hauling and/or traveling at freeway speeds and long
non-stop durations, A car built to last!
