If the oil pan gasket, oil filter, oil cooler hoses, dry sump pump
rear main sear, front seal, timing cover, valve covers, back of the intake, oil pressure gauge sender, oil galley plugs in the back of the block
if any are leaking oil, oil can and will get on the clutch. if the front input shaft seal on the trans is leaking trans oil will get on the clutch.

I think I narrowed it down to oil, from the oil filter adapter to the block...Got to get back under there and sort it out before I go any further.

If I get in there and dont see any oil on the clutch, are there any adjustments to be made that would cause it to slip? Or is there a way to tell if it just will not hold the HP?

Did you clean off all the anti corrosion oil from the new flywheel and clutch pressure plate before installing the clutch.?
lacquer thinner.

Clutch pedal adjustment.

I cleaned the flywheel with brake kleen, but might have forgotten the pressure plate looking back at it now..

Also I have a hydraulic throwout bearing, would that still be a pedal adjustment? Cause I would try that before removing the tranny.

Hydraulic TOB adjustment is usually done by screwing the bearing in or out to set the gap. Some setups also use shims. In any event, if this is incorrect the TOB piston can bottom out against the retainer before the pedal travel is used up. This will cause hydraulic fluid to leak out around the seal.

Not to revive an old thread but I decided to swap out cams on this car. Currently I have:

Lunati custom grind Solid Roller cam
Advertised duration 293/297
Duration@.50 260/264
Gross Valve lift .627/.600 lift
Lobe seperation 107*/104*
comes close to one of their Dirt Track 4000-8000 rpm cams.


I was thinking of this cam for more drivability
Advertised Duration (Int/Exh): 279/285
Duration @ .050 (Int/Exh): 249/255
Gross Valve Lift (Int/Exh): .585/.600
LSA/ICL: 110/106
Valve Lash (Int/Exh): 016/016
RPM Range: 2800-7200


What do you think?

BTW here is the motor in case you forgot.

383 Stroker motor bored out 4.065 (389 stroker)
10033867 Pontiac Motorsports Head (62cc)
Cometic .070 headgasket (11.0:1 compression ratio)
