The engine is bored +.040, flat top pistons, '416 heads, Summit intake, and an Edelbrock 1406 carburetor. It runs about 10:1 compression and burns with a stock HEI distributor and coil.

1959 283 Chevy Cold Start
A cold start of the 1959 283. Not really a cold start I guess as it is 70
degrees here but the engine is cold. Anyway, here it is with some details
about it. Thanks for watching!

partly taken apart later to be painted and finish polishing, just wanted to
hear it, while I am getting my 57 chevy ready. I also have a 458 c.i. set
