Project GM Holden 253 V8
The beginnings of my 253ci Holden V8 restoration project!
[ project shelved indefinitly due to lack on income to spend on it] - 11/5/09
The engine was a $100 junkyard find, having spent a number of years outside in the weather it is in rough shape, but not too far gone!
My primary assessment determined that it needs a bearing kit, bore hone, gasket kit, lifters, maybe a cam shaft, rebuilt heads, sump and rocker covers, carburetor, and possibly more ancillary equipment.
Either way its a great learning experience that I encourage any gearhead to undertake at some stage in their life!
