Roller cam/lifters

Hey Guys, I just jumped over to a roller cam/lifters. I've gone through the settings a couple times now but it still sounds like a loose lifter, everything is tight the way it should be. Are they normally noisy? I was told to run 5w30 for the initial start up. Am I missing something, I plan on runni...

Bearings

What's your thoughts on using a Bi-metal rod and main bearing? I've always used clevite bearings but i haven't heard much about the bi-metal.

350 tranny

Hey Guys,
Gonna be pulling the engine to freshen it up and was considering doing the same for the tranny. What I was wondering should i tear the tranny right down or just filter and fluid, it doesn't slip or act up.
What are your thoughts?
Thanks in advance

Re: What is the real answer for a 12 bolt swap???

You need the arm swap kit, i didn't need to move my shock bracket or spring perches. I did however upgrade the driveshaft, and a different u-joint is needed. And you will need a different backspace for your rims. My 12 bolt is out of a 67 chevelle.

Re: Cost to build thoughts... 12/10 bolt swap, 8.8/9" swap

I had great luck and it was cheap for the 12 bolt swap. Used the iceman 12 bolt swap arms, different b/s rims, driveshaft and that's all i had to do.
Traded my old 7.5 10 bolt and a fridge for the 67 12 bolt.

Re: 12 bolt cross over

You would need 12 bolt swap control arms, different backspace for rims, u-joints. Best to find out exactly what yr the rear is. I did the 12 bolt swap in mine.

Def the motor mounts, I never did the tranny mount. You may need to pull the dizzy out to get a little more height.

Re: Edelbrock 750 vs. Holly 750 supercharger carb

I run a B&M 162 supercharger and with these their is no need for a supercharger carb per say, they recommend a boost reference carb but these don't produce enough boost to warrant it. I use a 750 speed demon and this thing works great. Just grab a double pump holley or a demon and scrap that edelbro...

Re: Timing mark/timing tab

Is your dipstick tube on the drivers or passenger side? 80-85 blocks use a diff balancer and timing tab than pre 80 blocks. I already ran into that problem before
