Thanks all

Damn, finding a job is so hard nowadays.
I'd love to have enough just to set these little or big missalignments straight, just to have my car running right. That and I'm trying hard to find a way to Dallas TX. Last tune-up recently I went with Bosch Platinum 4+ & Bosch wires but the standard Delco rotor & cap. No gaping plugs checked the plugs are right for my type vehicle/engine, don't know about heat.

stroked motors have short rods and are hell on CR limits - Baseline for a smc stock stroke is 10-1/2 (max) -- for a stroked 383 10 even is max to be safe.

Alum heads help - add 1/4
coated pistons tops - add 1/4
long rods - add 3/4
inverted water flow (heads first) - add 3/4
With these mods you can run 12cr on hitest pump easy.

Trick - Run windshield wiper washer pumps to each side of downtubes on your headers - The water to stream spary will drop exhaust seat temps so that your water guage will show an almost instant drop from 210 to 180.
I use this at the strip for an instant cool down.

re: New Chev Corporate 5.3 SB -- Fantastic motor

There's a long grade I had to tow up with the trailer and race car. First truck had a built SBC 400, then another truck with an anemic 350, then a truck with the Vortec 454, and finally a truck with the 5.3. Guess what, my highest MPH towing up the grade was with the new 5.3 engine. Had to keep the RPM's up high, but it easily out pulled the 454 - and gets decent mileage doing it.

I am looking for a late model 5.3 to go into my 70 Camaro (one owner).
Any suggestions?

Thanks!
Mike

I'm not barking up anyones tree or anything but it seems some ppl need to read up some info from David Vizard..... If you don't know who he is then you completely prove everyone's points in this thread........

There's definitely some useful info on this forum site. Keep it up!

This thread is three years old. Instead of bringing back a old thread you should have posted this as a new question.
However, going over what you said I'm not sure it is a question.
You need 200cc runners or you have 200cc runners?
You have 12:1 compression, or you will have 12:1 compression?
No matter which way you slice it, you'll never get it to run on 12:1 compression on 92 octane unless the timing is severly slowed down which robs all the power making benefits to start with. How about starting a new post and give more detail on what your question is.

Welcome johnthain,

I agree with starting a new thread. Us old folks haven't a chance of remembering what was said in a long thread from 2009.

Do you have aluminum heads? What cam? If you are asking for info, just start a new thread and list as much as you can about your engine combination.

Hoping you can share some insights!

Hey Jamcs53willys, ! had a 2WD53 Willys when I was much younger and regretted every having to sell it. Recently I found a 2WD 50 Willys that needed a lot of TLC as it has suffered many years of neglect; lots of rusts and just plain worn out.

My son and I are now into the restoration and are contemplating different drive train options. Would you mind sharing some of the insights as to what went into replacing the drive train on your 53 Willys?

Nothing too detailed, just what you managed to make work on the original frame. The 350 engine and auto tranny setup is one I have heard of before and sounds like a good direction to go. What rear end did you match up with it and did it bolt right in or did you need to make alterations. Did you need to have the drive shaft altered as well?

I believe you also mentioned a change in the front end; what did you use and how did you make it fit? Any info you could share would be appreciated. My son and I are still trying to decide and rather than try and reinvent the wheel we are looking at what has already been done.

Thanks much!

Joe
