When you first started this eng. and broke in the cam did you drain the oil? And then put in your new eng. brake in oil?

No it's the same oil from the cam break in. Should I have changed it right then?

Comp Cams tells you to change the engine oil and filter immediately after cam break-in and refill with 10w30 and to not use synthetic for at least 3000 mi.

That original break in oil from cam break in; also cleans up all chemical's and minute particles left in the eng during rebuild!! You dont want that in your new eng ! If you didnt block your oil filter by pass All your oil is not going through your filter!!

The big cam/power brakes will function once the distributor timing curve is corrected. What cam? what initial idle timing? max timing? You can fix that.


The rings will not seat until you make some good WOT runs.
Babying it around town will not seat the rings.

X2. I have a long story about this to support the statement about ring seating, but take my word for it . F-bird is right.

Do the valve covers have baffles or are they open? Reason for asking is I ran into the same problem about a year ago and it was misting oil past the breather in the valve covers (was running two breathers and no PCV). Ended up getting new VC with baffles and running a PCV which took the problem away.

I see your from Des Moines...Which race shop are you working with?

Thnx F-bird. The timing is at 0, I still need to mess with it a little. I'll have to ask the guy who helped me put the bottome end together about the cam, all I know about it right now is that it is custom built from JR Motorsports for drag racing (According to him it's bigger than anything I could just order off jegs)

Hey Blownchevelle68, I have one cover baffled and the other has my PCV Valve. It definately seems like more smoke than the PCV Valve can handle on its own, its new but I think ill swap the valve out when I do the oil just to see if I got a dud or clogged it with all this oil.

And I've been working with JR Motorspots out in Ankeny. . . Awesome place.
