Don't think the 02 sensor is my issue as it's the one that came with the gauge. The instructions state I only need the red and black. But I have been seeing the white also needs to be hooked up to the lights. Dunno Working today so I will get back at it tomorrow.

Re: Stroke it or leave it?

Found out my issue with the wideband. I had it attached to a blade that did not give more than 1 volt of juice keyed. I dropped it to the next one down that my meter showed the 12.5 volts and walla it works. I got the truck dialed in pretty good. I bought a timing light from HF and it has the rpm dial on the back. The timing was damn near spot on so I left it. The motor bumps right over cold and hot. I just need some clear roads to get out and drive it.

I started putting the 460 back together for the chevelle. I noticed when I was ready to reinstall the timing cover that the comp double roller cam gear had been rubbing on the factory stamped cover. I need to get a new cover but not sure which one to buy that the gear will not hit and it will still fit under the water pump. Anyone know which cover I need? I'd like to get one with an inspection plate for the cam button.

You need to find if it was a cover issue or too much endplay. I never had an issue with stock covers on my race engines. As far as covers, the Cloyes is probably the nicest. You can set the endplay right through the cover.

My endplay is good. I even shaved the end of the button down to match. The motor was already running a dbl roller before of an unknown brand. I will check tonight and see if the previous gear was thinner than the comp gear. It's only rubbing the top of the cover not the bottom. The cover is going to get replaced. I also need to find a 7qt oil pan for the chevelle as well. Is a windage tray or scraper necessary for a street beater?

My personal preference for a chevelle pan is the Moroso 20408 pan.

Re: Stroke it or leave it?

Update, The rat is built and ready to run. The timing gear issue was my mistake. The gear that came with the motor had the roller bearing at the back. The comp gear set was ordered along with the roller bearing. Comp never told me I didn't need the roller bearing on the back of the gear. Removed the roller bearing and everything is good and straight. Cover fits nicely and no issues. I wanna hear this monster run!

The eddy carb on the truck is dialed in and man does it pull hard in all the gears. I have the timing set right and the wideband stays in the green 95% of the time through the RPM range. That 5 speed swap over the monster 400 was the best thing I did to the truck for driveability other than removing and selling the fitech.

I did order the E85 carb for the rat so hopefully soon I can get it into the 65's frame and with some other systems rigged up can hear it run for the first time.
