Re: Project Vitamin C-10

The rods were still good. It had too much boost.

Re: Project Vitamin C-10

Most of the time something breaks in the valvetrain and an intake valve gets stuck open, fills the cylinder full of fuel and bang. Could also have been too much pressure. Alan is about 7600 short of the horsepower the top fuelers are making but should still check it out.

I wish it was that easy to pop the oil pan off. I have to raise the engine up at least 2 inches.

Yeah I clearanced the oil pan for that. At least I thought I had it good enough, but don't remeber rechecking it after I bolted it down.

I looked at it and didn't see anything that looked like a crack.

I use it every once in a while with a long metal rod just to "listen in" on my engines.

If you would like I will shoot one off to ya.
thanks!! I might take you up on that.

I'll give that a shot, never tried a hose before. Thanks

Haven't been able to fool with it. Most of the reason is no time, but some of it is I don't want to. Kind of disheartening. I'll power thru it.

has anyone use this type of oil pan gasket? My block falls into the year range for this gasket, but I read tonight it is for a thin front gasket, and I believe I have a thick one I'm not really sure. I thought it might be easier to deal with under the trruck.

Re: Project Vitamin C-10

I had a stock pan on my 383 and did the same thing, my friend just finished the motor in his 84 put a stock pan on it and the same noise. I am sure you will leave no stone unturned to find both issues power and noise and then burn up some asphalt

OK, the pan gasket above had the thin front gasket and I didn't use it. i went with the standard cork.

Dropped the pan last night and found where it was rubbing. Massaged it a little and with Shannon's help we got the pan installed tonight.

The rubbed place is the shinny spot between the 2 reliefs.

Jimmy, I'm a little slow sometimes. I actually thought of that when I took the pan off and checked Jegs for a 400 pan and couldn't find one. I should have thought about it when I ordered this pan 2 years ago. Anyway problem is fixed. Thanks for the input.

Got everything buttoned up this morning and was jonesin' to drive around town. I made a 7 miles round trip. Stopped at the gas station to try the pump to see if I got any splash back. Tried full blast and the pump justed stopped. It filled pretty good when I throttled it just below full blast. Then to church for work day.

It was funny watching people as I went by. Alot of pointing and lookin'.

Re: Project Vitamin C-10

It's great to see your truck on the street. I've been following since I found this site and your build has given me inspiration more than once to keep going. I knew when I started mine that it would be a long process and seeing your accomplishments helps my motivation.

Same here PDXHall. I've been reading this thread since I joined and it's kind of a "you can do it!" to see him behind the wheel and toodling around town after all the hard work.

Congrats Alan!

Thanks for bearing with me during this process. This build will be around for a long time. I say that because, I still have a lot to do.

Me TOO!!

I forgot to mention this.

At the muffler shop I had an old geezer tell me I had my bumpers on upside down. I said no and he disagreed saying he just sold a 66 that was all original and his bumpers were right. I just said ok and went on.

Still insearch of a steering wheel. The 15" 59 Impala whell i wanted is $360. i can't do that right now. I found others styles cheaper, but undecided on what would look good for $150, suggestions..........
