TDC (Top Dead Center) compression stroke say for a leak down test, this is
an 'easy' way to do that. Also, if you are doing a leak down test you're

you quite a bit of time. Just be sure to use a gauge that's capable of
reading pressure as well as vacuum or this method won't work. Here's a

383 Stroker 500HP+ rebuilt
a few days after everything was finished (old 383 Stroker with stock iron
heads)the engine blew up with a broken piston.I will post a video about
that later. Luckily the Engine-Block didn't suffer any damage and after
disassembly of the whole motor it was the perfect 4-Bolt base for a real

So here we go, over 4.700$ in parts later...assembly is finished and right
now the motor waits for going back into the Truck. Still a lot of other
stuff to do at the Truck, but I think the Motor will be in the Truck
running, in about 4-5 Weeks.
