|ChevroletSS||Hey guys I'm looking for a timing chain cover that will work with a roller cam/ double roller timing chain on a 94 roller block. I don't want any plastic covers. Any help please|

Ya I messed up the deck height according to my dial indicator is .021 but Im guessing that might be around that. and they are dished with a stock deck height. 9.8 would be nice but might want to go lower for pump gas.
Thanks guys for the help I knew I F ed up somewhere.

More like .025 depending on piston compression height and block deck height.
And chances are your running a DISH piston not a dome top, so you would need to enter +12cc for piston volume.
You need to measure piston to deck with a straight edge and feeler gauges at least, if you don't have proper tools.

Im need some help getting an idea what my CR is. Every calculator I use keeps giving me 1.39:1 and I dont know what Im doing wrong.
Chamber cc: 64
Gasket Thickness: .045
Head Gasket Bore: 4.060
Piston to deck height: 9.025
I DONT HAVE A HEAD GASKET YET I HAVE BEEN TRYING OUT DIFFERENT NUMBERS TO SEE WHAT WORKS BEST. i ALSO AM GUESSING ON THE GASKET BORE

Jegs heads = Pro-filer
Had my hands on both kinds and bought Pro-Filer for my own.
Nice pieces either way.

|ChevroletSS||hey guys gotta piston ring question. Im trying to figure out if my gap is correct. The paper that came with my rings says that when the rings are compressed in the grooves that they should not stick outside of the grooves. Is this all I need to look for or go by or whats the process I need to do.|

It's pretty easy to buy cheap and in the process throw your money away. I know, I've done it enough

quality is one part,air flow is the other.
when you build an engine you plan the power from what the heads can flow and match the rest of the parts

Gotta question for ya guys... I was looking to get the AFR 195cc street heads but seen that jegs and edelbrock have their own 195cc heads with 64 cc at a lower price. The way I see it if they all have the same specs will they all give me the same results. If I can get a pair a little cheaper I will as long as I get the same result but not sacrificing quality taking in consideration that jegs and edelbrock are good brand names and have a good reputation.
Thanks guys for the help..

oil pressure at idle,,,
|02-16-2013 12:05 PM|
Small Block Chevys seem to run okay as long as they have 40 psi at hot idle. I had a machinist make a mistake on a crank once, and the hot idle was only 25. It went downhill little by little, and by the end of the month only had 10 psi at hot idle. I gave the machinist Hell over that and also gave him some not-so-good PR. Some speed shops took my word for it and took their business elsewhere after that.
Small Block Mopars like higher oil pressure, such as 60-80 psi at hot idle. It is because of the way the oil passages route inside the block. There is a fix that involves putting an oil bypass line in the valley, but I don't like doing that. If anything breaks, you can't see it until the engine goes south on you. I still remember the external copper top end oil line on the old "Y" block Fords that would work harden and break. Oil went everywhere. What a Mickey-Mouse outfit that was. "Have you driven a Ford lately?" lol

I also use King bearings exclusively now, nothing against Clevite, I just think King is better.
