  1. I believe there should be a way to tell by the cam specs, but I don't know how. You may want to contact the cam manufacturer or the engine builder. The place I got my cam from told me I would have enough vacuum 16 lbs. I had the motor built done by an engine builder. I didn't have enough vacuum for the brakes when I got her running. Long story short. My engine builder screwed up on installing the intake and I had enough vacuum.. I figured that out after I went with the hydroboost. 馃槻 I know how it is when you have a valve cover you like . But it might be easier and cheaper to go with different valve cover if you can. Good Luck !!!
  2. This is what it looks like installed with Lines run through fender.
  3. I would keep it simple and go with vacuum if you can. At the time I thought my engine was not making enough vacuum so I went with Hydroboost from Hydra-tech. Its a really nice system but it will cost some bucks. If your gonna do it do it right. Another guy had a great write up on the install process and parts if your interested I pasted the link below. On my install I ran the lines through the fender. https://www.pro-touring.com/threads/71471-Hydroboost-Installation-w-pics

  5. Hello, I both this tire and wheel sizing tool and no longer need it. There were no directions. All you do is Mount it it to the wheel studs. Choose your wheel size and width. Then you can see what sizes will hit or fit. It came with the straight Pice's for the wheel width. I just made a bent one to kinda mimic tire. I bought it from IFS (Inginuity Fab and Steel) on Ebay . $50.00 Shipped in USA. Thanks https://www.ebay.com/itm/5-Lug-Wheel-Tire-Combination-Measuring-Tool-Gauge-Fitment-Tool-Gauge/122322040990?hash=item1c7af6389e:g:qVEAAOSwKIpWEqlu

    BB Headers

    Mark, I have a 71 BB. Ive been running Patriot headers they fit but they hang kinda low. I believe quite a few people here rung the Dougs D313. I tried them hoping they wouldn't be as low as the Patriots. I had an issue with the Dougs D313 on the passenger side. Ya passenger side ... The one pipe was hitting the Hump on the frame. I can tell you with the Patriots and probably with the dougs IF they would work on yours they may be too close to the Proportioning valve. I have not heard of anyone running the ARH, but would love to know how they fit. Have some pics of the Patriots and the Dougs side by side if your interested. Good Luck !!
  8. . So it is done same as Flat tappet, I wasn't sure about that. I did find an article/Site with directions too I pasted it below. Guess Ill see if it is right. Thanks everyone, appreciate it !! https://www.centuryperformance.com/valve-adjustment-procedure.html ENGINE OFF Valve Adjustment Procedure - The Quick and Accurate Way: First, view this simple chart below for Small and Big Block Chevy Engines. Do you understand what it describes? A more detailed explanation follows below the chart. For other engines you will use the firing order that matches your engine to create a similar chart. This chart is based upon "opposite" cylinders of your firing order. (see below) Intake Valve Adjustment: ENGINE OFF! 路 with #1 cylinder Intake Valve at full valve lift .... Adjust #6 Intake Valve 路 with #8 cylinder Intake Valve at full valve lift .... Adjust #5 Intake Valve 路 with #4 cylinder Intake Valve at full valve lift .... Adjust #7 Intake Valve 路 with #3 cylinder Intake Valve at full valve lift .... Adjust #2 Intake Valve 路 with #6 cylinder Intake Valve at full valve lift .... Adjust #1 Intake Valve 路 with #5 cylinder Intake Valve at full valve lift .... Adjust #8 Intake Valve 路 with #7 cylinder Intake Valve at full valve lift .... Adjust #4 Intake Valve 路 with #2 cylinder Intake Valve at full valve lift .... Adjust #3 Intake Valve Exhaust Valve Adjustment: ENGINE OFF! You will notice that this is the same procedure and sequence as the intake valves listed above. Only now you are adjusting ONLY the exhaust valves the same way. 路 with #1 cylinder Exhaust Valve at full valve lift .... Adjust #6 Exhaust Valve 路 with #8 cylinder Exhaust Valve at full valve lift .... Adjust #5 Exhaust Valve 路 with #4 cylinder Exhaust Valve at full valve lift .... Adjust #7 Exhaust Valve 路 with #3 cylinder Exhaust Valve at full valve lift .... Adjust #2 Exhaust Valve 路 with #6 cylinder Exhaust Valve at full valve lift .... Adjust #1 Exhaust Valve 路 with #5 cylinder Exhaust Valve at full valve lift .... Adjust #8 Exhaust Valve 路 with #7 cylinder Exhaust Valve at full valve lift .... Adjust #4 Exhaust Valve 路 with #2 cylinder Exhaust Valve at full valve lift .... Adjust #3 Exhaust Valve
  9. Hello, I've done this before but it was when I had a regular Hydraulic Cam and stock Rocker Arms. When I did this prior it was not the best way, I did it with car running it was the back off nut and readjust by sound/Clicking method. My motor has 5000 miles on it now and I probably should have check it before but I have not done it. i Have a Roller Cam/Lifters and Rockers. I dont know if it is needed but I have attached the Cam card Any advice would be appreciated. Thank You 454 -30 over Brodix Race Rite Oval port Heads
  10. Hello, Seems like Monte's have gone up in Value last couple years. Volo has been around forever. It a cool place to visit as the Museum. Not to bad mouth a company but they are selling Used cars and need to make money. If it was all original and Documented and immaculate it might be worth that depending on the person. I love Monte's but for that kind of money I鈥檇 look elsewhere,. Personally I don't think that particular car is worth it. I'm in the area too , Id be looking for a private party and just be careful. Lots of honest people but also lots of Shister's... Good Luck.
  11. So if it is a dead spot on the Armature would it happen every time I try to start it? I can start it a few times and its fine engages right off the bat and starts. Then out of nowhere I get the "Click" and have to turn the key off and try again a few times before it will start. I've replaced the Solenoid one time each year on the mini starter because of this. After I replace it its good Until the next year. But its getting old
  12. It is a Mini Starter. Its not stock motor. When it does act up. I turn the Key and get a Single "Click". Its not a multiple of "Clicks".. I Turn key off and try again and get a Single "Click". Usually 3rd time Starts right up. Thank Guys,
  13. The old intermittent Starter click, click , does not engage issue is back, I thought it was resolved and it has returned. The only fix that works for a while is replacing the Solenoid which I have done each year, but its getting old. I do not think the driving the car only in the spring summer and fall heats up and kills the Solenoid. Yet Ive been having this issue and it seems to happen every year for past 4 years, I know the reason it is clicking is its not getting the full 12 volts at that time. But I dont know why and why it is intermittent. I wondered if it could actually be something with the Neutral safety switch. I read on another post somewhere "you should replace the neutral safety switch wires with 12 gauge wire" ? Or maybe it is something to do with the Rod on steering Column? But wouldn't that be dead and not getting a click? I am at the point where I dont want to but I am thinking of installing a relay since I cant figure it out. Any Suggestions appreciated. Thanks Usually starts and drives fine. Out of nowhere I get the "Click Click" when trying to start then after three or so tries she fires up. Happen's when Cold after it had started just fine. Good Battery , New Heavy Battery Cable's and Connections Ground is good and added ground straps from Motor to frame.
