Hi folks..

I have a 69 Valiant that hopefully will have a 512 stroker in by the end of May or sooner...My son is the engine builder as we have a 79 Cam. With a 415 small block good.

Somehow l let him talk me into driving it ,,, that was three yrs ago and now the rest is history...The block came from a 71 Chrysler (440) dated October 31, has been bored 30 over and what l'm looking for is a series of videos showing the building of a big block Chrysler SO I DON'T LOOK LIKE THE COMPLETE DODO THAT I AM...I NEED TO LEARN THE LINGO AND UNDERSTAND THE PROCESS..

Anyone who can assist will have my deepest gratitude...

Tks from the houndman

Welcome aboard and there are lots of guys on this site that can help you with what you what to get to understand...Unfortunately...I'm not that guy. If you want to make the car look pretty and be real shiny...I can help with that. I joined this site for some of the same reasons you did...and I've learned a lot and still in that learning stage. Things have changed a bunch when it comes to engine building since the 70's (well maybe less than I think, now it just seems that the guys on the street are doing what the full time race car guys where doing back then).

Best of luck and I'm sure you'll find what your looking for.
