Now that my short block is finished it's time to focus on heads. The heads are original Oldsmobile #6 castings with small valves and standard rate springs...this will all change very soon. Time to play!
Olds 355 (Part 1)
Original Olds 350 short block from my 1970 Cutlass that is now a 355ci
thanks to machining and forged pistons. The engine should have plenty of
power with just the bolt-ons. Stay tuned for more updates.
1903 Curved dash Oldsmobile Completed and Running
Well here it is finished and running as sweet as a nut. This was just
before a test drive which I was going to film but there is a lot to do when
driving it (steering, gears, mixture and spark setting) so I didn't manage
that. But as the client wanted it to run (which no-one had managed for
about 4 years) I was pleased with the result. It drove well too! For more

Digging into my Rocket 350
Now that I've got the engine pulled from my 1970 Cutlass Supreme, it's time
ot tear it down a bit and get ready for some cleaning and upgrades!
1970 Olds W31v
The W-31 was a Cutlass with a 350 CID Performance Option, not a 442 Option
and was only built for 2 seasons, in 1969 and 1970. Engine upgrades
included the use of what's become known as the 308 camshaft, which was
actually the unit's duration; the camshaft also touted .474-inch lift and
an intake/Exhaust valve overlap of 82
degrees. The engines were factory blue printed units by picking components
off the production line that were matched in weight. The Connecting rods
for the W-31 engine were particular to the engine The Cylinder heads were
also specific to the W-31 Completing the fuel/air induction system was an
aluminum intake manifold with a "performance calibrated" 750-CFM Rochester
Quadrajet (part number 7040255), as well as the W25 low-restriction air
cleaner assembly. Above that was a new-for-1970 air induction system: twin
scoops on top of a fiberglass hood with chrome hold-downs.

How To Torque Cylinder Head Bolts - EricTheCarGuy
Well this was a fun one to make. I believe I covered everything but if you
feel I haven't please let me know in the comments below as well as any tips
you might have to add as well. I'm not trying to make a big deal about
"pound feet" or "foot pounds" I'm just trying to put that out there, the
important thing is that you get the proper torque and get the job done
right in my opinion, what you decide to call it is up to you.
