Re: Removed crank from my 454 - not surprised.
Since we are on the subject of engine pieces, I have one that I have carried with my for 30 years or so. Came out of my race sbc running H/Modified . When people see it , they ask what kind of motor was this.
My response was with a straight face, Is out of a canted valve small block. Looking at it someone may think the Pontiac 303 race motors but it starts the story of loosing the entire motor, high $$ flycut pistons on factory bottom end. Roller cam was even more interesting, came out in 3 pieces. But the piston smacked the valve back up into the head, salvaging the head . Fun thru the traps.
