Its absolutely beautiful right now but the weatherman says we are going to get 12"-18" inches of the white stuff tomorrow - YUCK!!! I hate plowing snow!!!

Mother Nature left me a couple dead ash earlier this month and I decided to use this as an excuse to clean them up and stage the firewood by the porch. At least we will be cozy Wink

If you had cut that potted meat & Dukes w/ PBR, you'd get better mileage out of those arteries!

Best wishes on the heart repair job.

I didn't know removing those bolts without breaking them was even possible. Wink

I'm sure the show will be a big hit!

I envy you getting that much snow Hokie. I've been chained up and ready to go for a month. We're getting missed again.

Good luck tomorrow Hobo.

67 or up heads there. There was a couple of 1966 C6XX odd duck castings with the smaller intake ports and that combustion chamber. Light thumb print there. That chamber makes a nice 67cc pocket with a shave. What size is the engine?

I overhauled a 352 FE engine 45 years ago, and that was enough for me. I'm
reassembling a 7.5L (460 EFI) engine in my service/crane truck now that blew a
head gasket. I find the EGR and thermactor system is worse than the FE exhaust
manifolds! I got all the manifold bolts/studs out of the heads without damaging
any threads in the heads, or breaking any studs! I did leave the exhaust
manifolds on the heads when I removed them. That made things easier.

I always liked how the StreetMaster did. Is that what is on the table? I had three of them at one time. For what I set up the StreetMaster without the update did well on my 3.5" stroke engines and the one with the corners cut out did well on the 3.78" and 3.98" stroke. Traded my Port-O-Sonic for my first StreetMaster. It woke up the 390 on the bottom but didn't loose up top. FE is a good engine with well rounded usage.

On an FE it is best to have the top exhaust bolts flush or a thread below the ear. When the bolt is too long the rust and build up get pulled through the ear and at times will crack or break the ears off. When the bolts break you can weld a nut onto what is left. The heat swells the bolt and crushes the rust thus freeing it up. Sometimes you have to blow them out with a torch. There is a popular candle wax trick I have not tried yet.
