Replacing valve stem seals in 305 H.O. small block chevy from 1986 Monte Carlo SS
I'm putting the original 305HO back in the Monte after taking the ZZ3 out
for my Iroc project. This is mainly to make the car mobile but it may end
up tagged with this engine for a while. Previous owner reported that this
305 has over 100k miles on it and has been out of the car since 1997. He
said it smoked during startup and sure enough the valve stem seals were
worn out. Hopefully this will fix the issue.
1984 Z28 Camaro Project Car
My dad's 1984 Chevrolet Z28 Camaro.
I no longer plan to restore and use this car as a daily driver. I will be
buying an older pickup truck and will restore it and I will upload videos
of the restoration process of it.
I will restore this car at a later time. Fuel economy plays a big role in
this decision and I really
would like something that already runs and doesn't have 200k miles and that
gets better than 8 to 10 mpg and doesn't have rust holes everywhere. I have
been finding more and more big problems with this car than I first thought
there were and it is cheeper for me to get a more practical and a bit
better on gas. I hope this doesn't dissapoint anyone and I hope you guys
enjoy the videos to come!
Shout out to gearheadAbe
Keep up the good videos!

Investigating Chevy 305 burning oil at idle
[[UPDATE: after wasting money on valve stem seals without fully
investigating what the issue definitely was, i finally took off the right
side valve cover which has NEVER been taken off..i found the the rear oil
drain hole (theres 2, 1 in the front 1 in the back of the head) was plugged
with fiber which is from the 10 year old air filter i had been using..so
basically the ENTIRE valve cover was filling with oil force feeding oil
into the cylinders. Goes to show, routine maintenance is not a joke..i
figured an air filter is an air filter, but i guess not lol.After 10
minutes of idling the Exhaust will
start making blue smoke and it looks kinda like "Uncle Buck" lol. It VERY
rarely smokes when i drive, only when i take off.

1985 Camaro Start to Finish
This video chronicles the transformation to my wife's first car, a 1985 Camaro. She bought the
car in 1995 and when we first met she was driving it. We decided to sell
it to my brother a few years after we got married. During the summer of
2008, I reacquired the car and secretly brought it back to its original
3rd Gen Camaro Build
A (lotta) work in progress. I started this project to swap a 191cubic inch
V6 to a 350 V8 (along with performance parts, and swapping & upgrading the
transmission) in 2009. (see modifications list below.) These are pictures
and videos as I progressed and the very first engine start and test drive.
I applied primer to protect the metal as I knew I would have to put the
project on hold, which is where it has been since. Plan to start again by
gutting & redoing the interior here in 2012.
