F-I-N-A-L-L-Y !!

The 406, in all of itīs semi-assembled glory[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]. Machineshopguy had to grind the rodbolts a little, even though I was told ARP wavelocks fixed that when staying under .500 lift. Guess its more up to lobeseparation? Anyway, gonna put the rest of the pieces together this weekend.



Speaking of parts. The -TAADAAAA- kitchentable.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Now even better with Hedman headers, wireseparators, waterpump, fuelfilter, sparkplugs, oil dipstick, complete gasketset, well....everything[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: F-I-N-A-L-L-Y !!

It sure will Scooby [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]. I think Iīm gonna mail Mr.Gasket to include Kitchentable (on the menu where you select your block) in their excellent Desktop Dyno program.

Anyone with some important info before I start putting it all together (the engine, that is)?

Re: F-I-N-A-L-L-Y !!

DUDE - The notch on the piston is supposed to face the FRONT of the engine!!! Just messin' with ya - looking good.

Uh, the Chevy 400 is a small block, isn't it? I've heard it referred to as a BBC here in this post twice now..

Re: F-I-N-A-L-L-Y !!

400 is a SBC...a 406 is a bored 400, a 402 is a bored 396. And if you look at the exhaust ports(the hearders on the table) the center 2 are next to each other a BBC has em equaly spaced and the oil valley and fule pump hole wachamadohickey is all mouse stuff. Sounds like you got a mean little rodent in the making. Valve reliefs on the pistons look kinda big what compression ya running?

Ya going to paint her orange?

Re: F-I-N-A-L-L-Y !!

ratlover. Compression is 10.15:1 with my 64cc heads (with polished combustionchambers). My cam, Comp Cams Xtreme Energy 274 Specs: 230/236 @.050 .487"/.490", wants 9.5-10:1 compression and to top it all off, we got leaded 98 octane gasoline at the pump in Sweden (not sure if octanerating is the same over here as in the U.S of A)[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]. Desktop Dyno tells me about 405 hp @ 5500rpm and over 400 ft.lbs from 2000 all the way to 5500 rpm. I think itīll be ok[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]. If not, and I need more torque right off idle, I have a backup 258 adv.dur cam and first hand on a set of 76cc 993 casting heads. As far as colour goes, VHT spraycans just got banned in Sweden (lack of safety information bla bla), so I canīt find true Chevy orange....and plain red looks boring imho. Thinking of going with aluminum (i.e silver) paint on the block and heads with black valvecovers and oilpan.

MIKE.S!! WHERE THE H3LL HAVE YOU BEEN ??[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] Blazer is primed twice and waiting for final coat of paint. I primed it once early spring and sanded it all off because I found a better primer[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]. Iīm taking my time. Itīs not like Iīm gonne get myself involved in a project like this again anytime soon.....well, I want to build a blower-engine. A 6" rod, rollercam, steel everything, splayed cap 377 with Canfield or AFR heads but thatīs it![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] D*mn, I lied[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] I want to build a 434 smallblock too!
