Tks for the interest. Car is a 1967 6 cylinder-automatic. It's receiving a big block/4 speed transplant. My son saw the light and left his rice burner days behind. He couldn't afford a finished car so he looked for the nicest one he could afford planning on an engine upgrade.
Donor engine came from a 66 Impala SS in Indiana. It was complete with all accessories. That has turned out to be a mixed blessing. Bracketry is all good but...who wants a 37 amp alternator! We'll be replacing that and power steering pump-I'm sure if I put fluid in it it would leak all over.
Machine shop work was done by Russ Racing Engines in Hollywood, Florida. Serial numbers as follows:
Heads are closed chamber, oval port fitted with Manley stainless valves. One size larger than stock. Pistons are speed pro forged copies of the original cast units with speed pro rings. Engine was decked, line bored and cylinders bored .030 for a final displacement of 402 ci. Rockers are Magnum roller tip from Comp Cams as is the cam (Magnum 270-H). Manifold is a GM cast iron version of a Holley design usually found on 396/360 Chevelles or Corvettes with 427/425. Painting of the assembled unit was finished today. VHT hi-temp red. My son doesn't like chevy orange.
6 cylinder suffered near fatal rod knocking last week so transplant has moved up to now. I have the next week off so we'll be disassembling.
Here's the link to the photos. Tks to Bry68 for pointing out I typed the link in wrong originally.
