I agree he's good, but delta will work just fine for this application, I don't need it to be perfect, just need it to work.

delta is very popular with the 60* engine crowd we have been using there off the shelf 260 and 272 grands + having them grind us custom cams for a very long time .

I also have them grind all my custom turbo grinds for my customers.never had a compliant and never had one go flat on break in, i always get a set of lifters from them with the cam


delta is also very popular with the honda,vw and mitsu guys as well

To have a regrind harden would be a good idea and that doesn't normally cast that much more.

The lt1 cans are apparently very durable cores, better than the lower end aftermarket stuff, shouldn't have any problems taking what I want to throw at it. If you come across any lt1 cores for cheap I'd pick them up if you want a roller cam sbc. Cheaper and better than a low end aftermarket core. No fuel pump lobe though.

Cam regrind and shipping to my door from delta ended up being $109 bucks. Half what mike wanted. Mike may be better and worth the extra cost to some but I'm happily surprised with how cheap delta ended up being.

I'll post the cam card when I get it. I told him what I wanted and he said he'd get as close as he could on that core. I'll probably get it Monday with the holiday thrown in there.

Finished assembling the short block today, was waiting on a replacement bearing for one I nicked. Waiting for my cam to arrive and still need to drop the heads off at the machine shop to get milled. Plan on ordering the sbc 280z swap kit from jtr next week.

Here's the cam analyzer readout that came with my regrind. A little smaller than I wanted but I realize a stock cam core has it's limits. Great people to deal with but don't hold your breath waiting for an email response- a phone call is how to get it done with them.

usually the smaller the engine the wider the LSA for a given set of heads.

Here is a more recent pic, the aluminum engine mount adapters at the bottom, the intake manifold is just sitting on top for now, waiting on gaskets and stainless bolts (my little bit of show).

Also have block hugger headers I'll be wrapping in fiberglass tape tonight, they'll go on once its in the car.

I also have attached a standard sbc exhaust gasket (ones that came with my $65 header kit) shown on the LT1 exhaust ports, I didn't have a problem with the roof like I was expecting.

I thought about it, but it kept coming back to one simple question- Why?

This will be nice for what it is, but it won't be setting any records or winning any shows. I'm at the point where I'd rather enjoy my car 100 miles at a time instead of 1/4 mile at a time.


I'm also looking around for a Datsun or Luv pickup that will be built as a daily driver as well with just a nice 4 banger and a 5 speed, enough to haul a half ton but still get me 30mpg unloaded.

I had a couple 80's S-10's. One had a highly modified iron duke 151 (basically a circle track engine but with only 10:1 compression) and much to my amazement that thing got right around 30. It was stripped down to nothing but 2 seats and a dash though, 2wd, 5 speed manual steering no AC, no carpet, etc.

I've thought about getting another S10 (or even a 5 speed 2.3L Ranger) but I like the styling of the Luv or Datsun more. I'd like to drop a Ford 2.3L with a 5 speed in the Datsun- I built one of those 2.3L Ford enignes before as well and they're a pretty damn simple and durable engine.
