Yep, they're ported to match standard gaskets, with the bowls all polished up. Sticking with the 327 plan. I keep looking at that ridge around the 0.040" overbores, hoping that my +0.060" will go well. It's the same "machine shop" (loosely used term here) that inspected my block and said it'd make it.

Thanks Chip! Boy is doing well. Working at a shop called ICDI Diesel as a mechanic. Lots of injectors, glow plugs and chassis work. He's getting deep on the Snap-on and Matco trucks!

Oh, good lord. You've explained the house/Snap-On paradigm, right? Glad he's doing well.

Re: My '67 Fleetside C10 renew

Still breathing. Some recent motivation! Chip hustles down to Texas for a radical four-eye, I miss Vic Cook in my neighborhood by a millisecond and Greg has Steiner outside next to his Gen 1 Camaro. Oh, and I sold the damn house . I hadn't been to my storage unit in months but had to dump off a few last things and got to lay my hands on that old cab. Soooo I ordered rods! Gonna grab a stand, that old block and git to some blueprintin'! We'll have this thing howling on an old tire and a bucket of gas by Christmas.
Knuckles is doing awesome. Still wrenching on big Ford trucks and learning a ton. Pulling side work along too. Did heads on a Durango for a pal of mine, finishing up some Subaru work for another friend and a neighbor just dropped off his '75 K5 plow rig for a motor job. More motivation for me to grab a stand while there's still Room!
Stay tuned... 6" small journals baby!

Glad to see you're busy. Tearing all sorts building timber down.
If you were closer I'd let you use/give you an engine stand.
You'll be rolling soon.

Sweet lookin' rods, John! Glad the house deal is done and you've now got some "discretionary income" to divert to the project. Looking forward to updates. Catch you on the next trip.

Re: My '67 Fleetside C10 renew

Thanks for the check-ins and my apologies for going soo silent. I'm working with a miniature touch screen device these days, which is a PITA! Rods showed up and I grabbed my block, crank and pistons from storage. I plan on getting some block work done soon! I need bored, zero-decked (square), then I need to do some measuring so I can mill the pistons down to 11.0:1. In the meantime, I think I'm going to drag another shorty home this weekend. I want to sell the plastic truck I'm driving to free up another $450 / month. She's got a factory 400 that's drinking water. Boy has lots of goodies and I'm thinking a basic internally balanced rotating assembly and some iron heads will do the trick. A much better driver in my opinion! Barbie truck gets 15MPG and is a DOG! Whatchya think for $2500? 1977 Silverado!

Not bad, if you can really swing the new motor in a timely fashion. (spoken from experience...) I like it!

I have a soft spot for square bodies... always twist my neck when one goes by on the highway.

Re: My '67 Fleetside C10 renew

I hauled it to the house last weekend and promptly had the block stripped. Well, Knuckles did.

It's a 511 four-bolt at +0.030" that could probably stay that way. It had cracked-to-sh!t 882's and hydro-locked #5 (bent rod). The bottom end is already at the machine shop for bore (probably), zero-deck, re-con 5.7" rods and balanced. I pulled the trigger on some Brodix aluminum heads today. The machine shop has ordered some KB 18cc pistons that'll get me around 10.2:1 or so. I've also got a 282ish hydraulic roller kit in the cart!

I'd start a new thread over in "square land" but this is just going to be my driver. The goal here is to sell the plastic truck to free up moolah to get my "build" back on track. It's just a side-bar here but it's gonna be a scooter!

No steam holes, don't look like any water jacket to drill into. Brodix says I don't need them. Any experience Here? Google search is all over the place. It's obvious to me that there'd likely be a steam pocket between the siamesed cylinders but how much drama could that create? Some people say no problem while others say they had trouble. Ugh!

It's always been my understanding that for a street use SB 400, you need the steam holes.

Re: My '67 Fleetside C10 renew

Still working on the wrong truck here again but this stuff showed up today. Cam and lifters are on the way for a Wednesday arrival... Thought I'd have my bottom end today but no call. Knuckles dropped off a block and crank yesterday and my block was honed and decked (mocked up for a real zero). Waiting on balance I suppose.
