the rods came with eagle spec esp-13010030 i think stock length 5.7 ? forged 5140 i beam
i dont rember the part number of the gasket .thickness was on my machine shop invoice
as far as the studs yes on the washers that came with them and arp sealant (white tube ) under pressure they leak .today I talked with arp and they tell me remove all the water from the system remove one stud at a time blow out with compressed air squirt brake parts cleaner in the hole blow out again clean the threads and load the threads up with a lot of arp or permatex ptf and retork .
do only one at a time .What a pain in the *** !!!!!either the product works or not i say NO .I will b changing to permatex

|macrobert68||yea i saw the cam requires 11-1 and im around 10.3-1 whats going to happen ?|

I have a couple of questions for you. What length connecting rods did you use? The Cometic head gaskets you used is C5249-030 the part number? If not post the part numbers you used. When installing the head gaskets did you use any type of sealer on them. Also did you install washers under the nuts on the head studs?

2800 stall in th400 unsure what rear end to use .I was thinking gm 12 bolt 410
What do u think? Mostly street car some track time gotta find out what it will do

Static CR is around 10.3, but my concern is if the block hasn't been decked, the quench distance is ~0.055".
Fill in the blanks and a guess could be made.

|hpete||Fbirds right about the carbs. I don't have time to do the math but I'd bet the compression will be low for the cam.|
|02-10-2013 02:52 PM|
Using the right springs and heads that cam will make power to about 6,500, and you will need some stall if it's an automatic.
Poser girlie-man motor?? Now that's funny...

|macrobert68||thanx for the tip i agree .So do u think i would most likely have the same water problem with my dart shp rocker arm studs ?|
|02-09-2013 03:10 PM|
IDK maybe i just didnt use enough .I dont think i went crazy with the stuff just enough to cover the stud threads 50% maybe .the build started back in march piece by piece as i could afford parts .Today I am rebuilding the 4160 carbs .
