    Hello I am new to this forum as I am primarily a long time MOPAR fan. I recently purchased a 1969 SS396 (325 hp) and love it. Only had it a week and a half. It ran great when I first got it (it was restored by the way) after the initial dead battery problem was solved with a slow charge...

    Hey team, so I have a freshly built 454 in my restoration and I have a few problems I am trying to flush out. The first major one is where it feels like it is misfiring. I have checked the plugs and pushed on each one when it was running both at the plug end and the distributor end. Ideas for...

    I'm knee deep into my ground up 71' Chevelle 454 restoration. This will be a pump gas street car and want it to go fast, stop quick, corner as good as possible, and sound mean as hell.

What are reasonable engine builder alternatives that I...

    Hi, I'm new to this forum, but finally purchased a chevelle which at this is just a roller already primed. My dad and I were fixing up one together when I was younger, but unfortunately the painter ran off with it. Anyways, I bought a 454 with a 400 Turbo trans, and unfortunately the 454 came...
  14. What's it worth?
    I'm trying to value the 454 that my father and I had built for our 69 Chevelle back in 2005. The motor never made it in the car. It has 0 miles since rebuilt. I've done numerous searches on Ebay and all over the web trying to compare what I've got vs. other built 454's, but I thought getting...

I pulled over and got out and the engine was shaking quite badly (not motor mounts). RPM's are normal, oil pressure is normal (35-40 at a stop and 65 while on the move), the balancer...
