Firing up A Brand New Chevy 409 Engine
My dad and I built a Chevy 409ci engine, and we fired it up for the first time today. It has a roller camshaft and valve train setup, so it didn't need the always worrysome break in procedure that a flat tappet engine requires. This video is from the second time we ran it, as we had to shut it down on the first try, due to a coolant leak. All of the smoke is from the anti-freeze on the headers, and the fact that they're brand new headers. Here's a spec list on the engine: 1963 Chevrolet 409 block (stock bore) 1961 409 forged crankshaft Stock connecting rods 1963 high performance forged pistons 11:1 compression ratio Clevite bearings Hastings rings Felpro Gaskets ARP Main Studs, Rod Bolts, Head bolts, and accessory bolts Edelbrock Performer RPM aluminum cylinder heads Comp Cams hydraulic roller 236/242 duration at .050-inch lift, .578/.593 max lift, 110 LSA Comp Cams roller lifters, pushrods, Comp Ultra Pro Magnum 1.7:1 rocker arms Edelbrock Performer RPM dual quad intake with dual 500cfm four-barrel carburetors Edelbrock as-cast finned aluminum valve covers (air cleaner not pictured) Edelbrock aluminum water pump Pertronix billet distributor, coil and plug wires Hooker 1-7/8-inch Super Competition headers Engine break-in and initial tuning is being performed on a home-made engine run in stand, complete with a battery, fuel supply and cooling system. Stay tuned for more videos on this engine, as we tune it, in preparation for some Dyno time.
