    Hello All, I recently bought a 1967 Chevelle in pieces and am in the process of planning and putting back together. One of the pieces is a Gen IV 454 and I am trying to figure out which water pump\pulley & bracket\radiator\fan setup. I am under the impression that there are clearance issues...

    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. The chassis (powder coat doner frame) is mostly done (thx Mark @ SC&C- AFX suspension kit, V2 Verishock, 14"...

    I am looking to find a ~550 HP 454 or 502 engine for my 67 Chevelle. I was all set to buy one from Vortec Pro Performance in CO Springs near where I live but it appears that Mark Jones is no longer online. I live near the Denver, CO area. 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...
  8. 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...

    Hey guys, while I was driving normally down the road and I came to a stop light my car started shaking violently. 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...

    I amn looking for a front A/C bracket for a BBC for the a/c compressor for my '71. This is the pice that bolts to the front of the compressor right behind the clutch and is used to adjust the belt tension. It looks like the letter "C". I've checked e-bay and the classsifieds but no help. Any...
