1986 Chevy 305 V8 PARTIAL ENGINE OVERHAUL
***I realize I didn't need to torque the timing cover bolts down, I just
did it for the vid, also the start up at the end of the vid was NOT the
first start up.*** This is a 1986 Chevy C10. We only did a partial
overhaul, just a new cam, lifters, water pump, timing chain, gears, a new
gas tank and different 4-barrel carb was also installed, and just some
other smaller parts. Thanks for watching and please subscribe
1984 Chevrolet Camaro z/28 Project
This is the edited version of my other video. I must say I despise windows
movie maker, the song always goes out of sync when you're trying to edit.
This 1984 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 is my first car.
Purchased without a motor I got a great deal. It came with relatively
fresh paint, 85iroc gfx, and almost no rust except for on the LCA's (which
i plan to replace). The body has 118k km's on it as well as the T-5
tranny. The previous owner has bought a 3" mandrel bent stainless header
back Exhaust with a cat delete. it
came with a set of hooker competition headers as well as weld draglites all
around, 215's in the front, 255's in the back.
Since i bought the car in may, '08 I've bought a '69 010 sbc longblock.
tore it all down and rebuilt it to make sure it was done right. (good
thing i did, somehow the previous owner managed to get a seed inbetween the
deck/heads.) So far the engine is rebuilt, bored .060 over with
hypereutectice pistons, a .477 lift cam with 112 LSA, '72 883 heads,
edelbrock rpm air gap intake, holley 650 dp w/ squarebore mech secondaries
and hooker headers. Nothing fancy, but as a student, cars are bloody
expensive. one day i want to built a nice all-aluminum roller 383.
As for the car, nothing much has been done to it yet, all i've done is put
new e-brake cables in. However, once the motors in and running, i'm going
to put my funds into a pile of UMI suspension stuff, such as SFC's, LCA's,
LCARB's, Adj PHB, Wonderbar, Koni Yellows all around, Eibach Pro-kit and
maybe a hurst shifter / shift knob ( i feel it gives the car a more late
60's muscle car look), and maybe some 4th gen seats and audio equipment
(since theres absolutely nothing now).
Anyways, the video's not as good as i was hoping, i was patient with movie
maker for a while, but now eventually i just gave up. would rather do it

Chevy Big Block Engine Starting
We just finished our new Chevy Big-Block engine, wich will soon find a home
in our 1980 Camaro. It
is just one of many BBC's that I have built. It is a "street friendly" 10:1
all forged, mechanical roller with too many goodies to list . It sounds
crazy and I can't wait to feel the tire shreading performance.
Starting 1984 Z28 H.O. Camaro
This was one of the first time i've started this Camaro, since several years of
The idle was too high, and the starter was out.
And the '72 Corvette which lights me (behind me) had problems of lighting !
All is beeing to be restaured since 2005. The rebuilt engine has been
started. It was cracked engine... So a brand new 350 came.
See my others videos of starting engines.

► New Corvette Engine Build Experience
More news and videos on http://www.youcarpress.com
For enthusiasts who want to be personally involved in creating their
Corvette, Chevrolet's new Corvette Engine Build Experience allows them to
literally build the engine for their new car. In what is believed to be the
first program of its kind, customers who order a 2011 Corvette Z06 or ZR1
can choose to pay an additional $5,800 and hand-assemble their cars' LS7 or
LS9 engines at GM's Performance Build Center (PBC) in Wixom, Mich. In
addition to building their own engines, Corvette buyers can attend driving
school in Arizona or Nevada, take delivery of their vehicles at the
National Corvette Museum or watch their vehicles being built at the
Corvette assembly plant in Bowling Green, Ky.
91 Camaro RS 305 V8 TPI cam w/ open headers
just gettin to the end of my motor swap, still many bugs to fix.
305 V8 5.0L cammed shorty headers
update: the car was timed 40* retarded from where it should have been so
thats why it was acting the way it was. no 305 should sound like this even
open header, it was due to the changing of timing tab position between
newer and older small blocks
How to Break In A New or Rebuilt Engine - EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at
I'm sure there is more than one way to do this but this is the way that I
was taught and it seems to work as intended. The idea is to make sure the
engine is fully lubricated before you start it up for the first time as we
know all too well what happens to an engine without oil, in fact I forgot
to show me filling up the oil filter with oil before I installed it sorry.
Feel free to add your tips and tricks in the comments.
