Hey guys, I have another question, seems like I always do doesn't it. I thought I read on the other forum when you go to torque head bolts, you should use oil on the threads to ensure correct torque value, am I right about this or are you suppose to use lock tight. Also, what is the torque for stock 305 heads? Question 2 We about ready to replace the cam, what is the correct way to break it in. I thought I read bring the engine up to about 2,000-2,500 rpm and run it like that for about 15 min. It is going to be strictly for the strip until we get the other engine built. Thanks in advance for the help.

Chris





On a stock block where the threads in the block are exposed to the coolant I always use sillycone and for a SBC w/ stock bolts the torque is 75 ft. lbs and it is common for the short outside ones to be done at 70 to get the stratch out of them.

And if its s flat tappet cam you are correct in that you want to run it at approx. 2,000 rpm to keep oil splashing onto the cam/lifters for anywhere from 10 to 20 min. I have always gone with 10 min. and only 1 failure and it was on engine that sat for 1 1/2 yrs. after assembly before it was started.

Make sure your ignition timing is real close and have a timing light ready to use before you fire it up. And also if possible put a fan in front of the radiator to help keep it cool.


Duane, When I ran a flat tappet in my vega when I first got as I didn't want to spend the $$ for a roller I broke the cam in with just the outer spring and after the 30 min break in I installed the inner spring. I use to run about 360 lbs open pressure and never lost a lobe.. \:D/

Barry, I have done the same a few times. On my 511 I kinda forgot to pull the inner springs off and broke the cam in with them .... no problems at all. And to top it off the cam had gross lift specs of .659"in & .679" ex. and the springs were only good to .630" ... shhhhhhhhhh dont tell anyone
