WELCOME JOHNNY ! you'll find this to be a fun , helpful group .

Being in El Monte you're right in the thick of cheap used parts , lots of good Self Service Junkyards all around you .

DO make one of the meet & greets ! they're terrific , some guys will show up with under construction rigs , others with amazing show rigs , some with tatty old beaters that still earn their living as Work Rigs (ahem) .

The really cool part is the sharing of knowledge , there's always a cool new thing to learn and they're helpful to look at your rig and offer suggestions if you ask .

Wait ~ more detail please ~

You were driving along with the oil pressure light leering redly at you or the gauge on zero then a connecting rod began to bang loudly before it broke ? .

These oil pumps rarely fail , depending on the details of what happened will help greatly .

FWIW , Melling's current Q.C. leaves much to be desired , I've seen many right out of the new box that were worse than the old pump .

It's a very rare thing for me to need a new oil pump .


It's raining again so I guess I'll have to drive my truck in it to - day , rust holes and all ~ I dislike the water dripping onto my feet .

Re: SoCal checkin' in

Driving to work started to smell something (kinda burning oil) smell. Looked at my oil gauge and it was at zero. Very loud clanking and BOOM!! This all happened in a few seconds . Had enough time to get over to the shoulder and put it in nuetral and coast off the fwy. Then push it 2 blocks to get it off the major street I was on. So I assume it's my pump ,don't know what else could be the blame. It was a cl motor I picked up cheap so I knew it was a gamble to start with

Re: SoCal checkin' in

I was at Pomona yesterday and stopped to talk to the guys from Classic Industries. I asked if they were going to have an open house this year. They said they were talking about inviting individual car clubs for an event at their shop. I said "C/10 club, C/10 club"! The guy I was talking to is the sales manager Brian, he may come to the So. Cal. Part of the board to check interest.

Post Re : V-8 Oiling Woes

O.K. ;

It's been a while since I did and SBC works but I remember there was a plastic clip connecting the oil pump to the distributor drive that often failed , allowing the oil pump to stop wile the dist. kept turning so unless you noticed the light/gauge , you simply drove the engine to death .

Also , used engines often have sludge clogged oil pickup screens , this is why I always flip 'em and yank the oil pan for cleaning and a looksee , then re seal the nearly always leaking rear main and timing cover seals .

Bummer you lo$t out but , there's plenty of good ones out there , keep working at it .

Luckily , The Chevrolet Division knew they were building the Common Man's cars so they designed the SBC V-8's & L6's to be simple and robust , easy to fix even if you're unskilled and only have minimal tools ~ remember those basic facts and you'll never go wrong with a Chevy . part of why for many years it's been the most popular car in the world .

FWIW ; 283's are not slow / underpowered when it proper tune ! maybe not tire shredding burnout beasts but what use is a truck you don't want to or cannot afford to drive daily ? .

Hell , I even like the original 265 CID V-8 but then , I tend to work my stuff really hard and don't accept less than 150,000 miles as normal service life so to me , build it right (low compression , balance everything) then you can hammer it like a red haired step child while the other guys are fixing theirs yet again .

I still have my 283 sitting up I only changed it because it started running bad and from what I was told it was the cam. Changed that, but broke a stud on the heads. Instead of changing the stud, got a price on rebuilding the heads, 450 was too high so I found an enging cheaper.

My problem was lose head bolts after all that. It was in my truck for over 12 years without a hitch. Just depends on what you want.
