Another Pontiac on the dyno today at TLC Restorations in Milton, Wi today. The manifolds and filter adapter spacer were items the builder purchased in 1973 for $5!

This little Triumph Spitfire /BMC crank after being straightened within 0.001", and ground and polished, is all set for a new service life.

Phosphor bronze liners installed, valves cleaned, polished and ground, and a decent 3 angle valve job should let the old Farmall M run a bit better.

I decided to reduce the chance of trapped oil seeping past bolt threads into the intake ports, so I added drain holes to the intake stands on these Crower shaft rockers.

Did some tuning on this 1970 Stage 1 Buick 455 today. Customer did a very basic stock rebuild with TA 212 camshaft and TA Intake, 850 Holley and an old set of Hooker Headers. 422HP @ 4600 rpm and 518lb-ft on 93 octane pump gas.

The guys at Metal Prep Services did an awesome job powdercoating my Chevelle frame. I highly recommend!. .now to find time to get it assembled.

Doing some chamber blending on these BBC 840 heads along with some bowl work. Between the factory cuts and prior valve jobs, the seat to chamber transitions weren't conducive to better airflow.

Slotting some intake bolt holes so I can center this casting on the port better. Port matching next. #smithbergracing #earlyhemi #chryslerhemi #enderleinjection #stackinjection #verticalmill #cpmotorworks #headfixture #slotting #quickndirty

Who remembers the first time the juice hit and the tires stuck?
Mine was @greatlakesdragaway 11/'00 when I put a 72 jet in the Cheater plate on my AFR headed 406 and went 1.41 '60 on stock suspension. I remember the track disappearing when the hood blocked my view and I short shifted 2nd from excitement and still having a column shifter!

This customers car has a smoothed firewall and Lokar throttle cable that was drilled 1/2" too high above the foot feed location, letting the cable come out. I added a section to the foot feed arm to get the correct alignment.

The saga continues this morning. Setup is a snap with my CP Motorworks Head Fixture. #smithbergracing #bbc #repairwork #repair #surfacing #refurbish #numbersmatching #396 #headfixture #cpmotorworks

Boring bronze bushings @ 500rpm and 0.003"/rev, leaving .005" to rough/finish hone.

Customer pressed his new pin bushings in and didn't realize they needed to be sized, or that they also need to be bored parallel and perpendicular to the rod bore before honing. Here you can see how far out they are just by sweeping the center of the bore and then sweeping one side. Just another example of why a Bridgeport is worth it's weight in iron....

Verifying everything is in order after repairing this 496 that suffered a lean condition in the car resulting in a broken valve and cracked cylinder. Customer should be happy with the results of this 10.8:1 build and BP 93 octane with 10% Ethanol.
Interesting to compare the results of this combination on this Land & Sea dyno vs the Superflow 902 it was dynoed on originally.

Did some mockup on this Olds for a customer, figured pushrod length for his Scorpion Rockers and Howard's Hydraulic Roller cam so he can order them when he's ready.

This is what caused the Triumph crank to bend. Probably spun a rod bearing, overheated, seized and snapped the rod.
So much for keeping his cost down...
#cpmotorworks #engineshop #machineshop #performanceenginebuilder #wisconsin #janesville #rockcounty #triumph #spitfire #stormvulcan

Measuring this Olds 350 steel crank to see if I can save the spun rod bearing by grinding it to fit a SBC rod.

Not all Heroes wear capes....Captain Permatex strikes again! Metal on metal is not the place for silicone sealer, especially in the oiling system!

Doing some contract work for TLC Restorations running their Land & Sea dyno. Friday was a mild 455 Pontiac for a 1970 GTO, and today was a 496 BBC the customer built for his 1955 Chevrolet.

When the manufacture can't use a sharp end mill when cutting counter bores, I get to make another custom socket. This Olds main girdle needs a little tweaking before assembling.
I still don't understand how anyone builds engines on a regular basis without a mill and a lathe in their shop, mine get used everyday!

Had a customer call me today about leaking intake gaskets on his 347 he had me do about 5 years ago. Cobra block with block braces and main girdle, studs, all the supposedly good stuff. Tiny little 225° intake lobe hydraulic roller motor, 5 speed in a sweet little Falcon. He sent me these photos of his actual problem...

My PSA for the day. Anti sieze does NOT belong on spark plug threads, especially on iron heads. It just makes a mess and prevents proper heat transfer to the plugs.
This is also another reason I use NGKs, they are plated to prevent seizing.

Performance valve job and a PCD surface on this little Mazda 2.3L head. Now to get the stem heights set for proper valve lash, then wash and assemble.

Roughing in this Mazda 2.3L head in for a Damond Motorsports injector spacer. Head is mounted on our own HF-2400 Head fixture in the Bridgeport mill, and that's a 5/8" BEM making quick and consistent work from port to port. I'll go in and hand finish next.

Surfacing heads on a belt sander is about equal to using a glass outdoor table and sandpaper... Proper shave with CBN in the Storm Vulcan takes out the waves left behind from previous shops attempt to make these heads flat.

Some weld repair and a fresh surface cut for this Brodix RR 294 head. New CHE guides and a valve job next.
