Links and pics need revised. I need to see if Al will work with me on this. My better half reorginized my photobucket so the links don't work.

Maybe I'll Quote the original and re input the links then Al can delete to original.

Jay (jbird) has posted some great pics and shared some great info in several threads including flow #'s after porting. Here are a couple of examples: Is Bigger Better?......049 Heads

Here's Darren's (71454Chevelle) flow #'s after porting: Flow Results for my Oval Ports



Let's see if we can move the knowledge forward.

Re: BBC Info.

Doc, I watched your videos on removing soft plugs and oil gallery plugs. Very nice demo. So last night I stripped this old greasy big block down. I removed all oil plugs except for the big one at the filter. That one is fighting me a bit. All soft plugs are out with ease thanks to the demo. But geeez are the 781's heavy son of a guns, wow. No wonder they put these things in trucks
I will fight with that plug tonight again. I tried your method and also heating the block but it did not want to move.
Thanks for all the info in this thread

Re: BBC Info.

For freeze plugs.... drive one side (edge) in the block....and the other side will 90% of the time flip out.... Vise grip the out freeze plug edge or lip with the curved side of the vise grips on the block, and they'll roll right out using the curved heel of the vise grips....

Re: BBC Info.

If anyone wants to know what a thumb rod looks like! Thumb rod on the right.

It's called a thumb rod because your thumb can be placed in the radius at the lower end of the rod.
