Congrats!! If the new car stresses you out, your welcome to let one of your 914 so cal friends borrow it!! Hint.. hint...

I'll probably sell it to some 22yo kid then move so he doesn't come back wanting me to R&R the CV's every week. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/av-943.gif)

That is a GREAT engine for a 914. You're gonna love it. Hope it checks out and she fires right up for you.

Straight out of the headers and into the mufflers. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/blink.gif) Wow that is a short exhaust! Kent, I was going to ask you when you plan on firing it up, but I am pretty sure I will have no problem hearing it here in Denver! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/av-943.gif) Nice addition to the stable. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/av-943.gif) Your not going to let me forget that! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) I deserve it. What Jim is referring to is a RRC back in 2010, IIRC. I drove my 1st 914 (76-2.0) to the event and I was prouder than a two petered Puppy. I had only had it 8 months and driving it for about 4 months. Anyway, I had the engine grille open when Jim walks by and points out to me that my air cleaner was installed 180 degrees off. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/av-943.gif) I wondered why I needed that tennis ball to keep the snout from rubbing against the wheel well. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/chair.gif) Embarrassing to say the least. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/headbang.gif)
Chris, I'm not sure if I will like it or not. If I wanted a dragster then yes. And I may dust a few fannies for the Hell of it but I'm not so sure of how it will handle. I really, really like the Suby flat six. It's marriage made in Heaven . er my garage that is.
Yea Ray, it probably will be loud but I've gotten some good advice on mufflers from Bob (Bigkat83), Andrew, Mike B & others who went before me with SBC's so that helps.
I do vacillate between titles for the new thread. Should I call it a "Build Thread" or an "Assembly Thread"? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/shades.gif) What do you guys think? I need to start it because I already have some "brake" questions for the collective brain trust.

Nice Car, enjoy the process.

BTW, toss the carb, and put some EFI on it. FAST Injection Kit is about as easy as it gets.

Install article

Enjoy the work

I'll keep it in mind Stephen. If the carb works I'll leave it. No sense in dropping 2K into it if not needed. This will never be my cruiser. Just a toy to put together, drive a bit and flip. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Dang I wish I was closer so I can test drive it and help out with a little wrench time (IMG:style_emoticons/default/drooley.gif)

What engine is in that thing? What needs to be done to get it running?

Chris, I'm told it's a 68 327 .30 over (338 ci) flat top's w/ valve reliefs. I haven't ID'd the heads yet but the info I received was 993 heads, 2.02" I & 1.60" E valves, 76cc chambers, estimated cam lift on intake .450". I have nothing on the Ex lift. Compression 9.0. Appx HP 300. What I gleamed from some SBC sites re: torque is maybe 350 ft lbs. I don't yet know if it is a 4 bolt main or not. Moot point for me because IIRC, not much increase in torque after 5000rpm so no need to spool up the RPM's. PO said they did the 20 min break in. It hasn't been fired up since. I won't know Diddley until she fires up. The wiring needs to be sorted out but to answer your question; I need to get 12v to the dizzy/coil, connect fuel lines, fill tank, wire up electric choke and water pump, run and secure radiator lines. Here's a few pic's of the head which I'll need to ID. The last time I worked on an SBC there were only a few heads; Power Pack and FI, IIRC but that was in 1979.

From the break in run:



Some ID marks on the heads





Another



Uno mas




Have you googled the engine casting number ?
It's in your first cylinder head picture but not legible.
At least you'll know what it started life as.

Not yet. I tried to ID the heads from the PO's pics and narrowed it down to 2. I haven't checked since I took some good pic's. Thanks for the tip on the block, Rory. Didn't know that. I'll check this weekend. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Same goes for the cylinder heads.
The casting number is under the valve cover.
Google "Chevy block casting numbers"
More info than you'll ever need.
Written report please.
