1972 Buick Skylark, TA 288-92H cam.
This is the TA 288-92H cam. Bought cam and lifters used from a reputable
source(Jim Weise who is a knowledgeable Buick guru, Hi Jim). TA SP1
intake, 800 QJ carb, Roller rockers, Headers and big 3" pipes all the way
to the bumper. This video shows the motor as it looks today and it is
different from the original video. The intake is the only visible part
changed but the valve covers have been painted Buick red to match the rest
of the motor. I like them better red than black as they were. Did the
additional motor work earlier in the year but am just now getting around to
a new video.
Motor is probably 9:00 to 1 or so comp ratio(cast hyperutectic pistons)as
both the block and heads have been milled a total of about .060" and has
homebrewed port and bowl work along with stainless stage1 size valves.
