Does anyone know where I can get an oil flow diagram for this motor, or any late model big block Chevy? Any ideas?
Race car engine? 3 years trouble free? I'd say pull it and go through it! I build + race and go through them during the week to run the next week end let alone 3 years, You got a lot of life out of a race engine unless you haven't accumulated any hours on it over 3 yrs or 3 race seasons.
