I am just asking, but do you think you guys could do a couple of articles on the first-generation Monte Carlos? Remove the axle nut with an impact driver + washer. The approach is to first measure the existing fuel pressure. The problem is that it will require additional fuel that will mean changes to the base fuel map in the computer. The vehicle also came standard with a four-speed automatic transmission. It is a big old beast and I can see over the top of cars and most other trucks. If you want to do more, spend about two hours opening up the exhaust valve throat to 90 percent of the exhaust valve diameter 1.
You also mentioned camshaft requirements. Another point worth considering is that buying a camshaft or cylinder heads for a smaller engine like the 350 costs the same as for a 403, but the potential to make more power will always be with the larger engine. To keep the price down, have your machine shop perform a 30-degree back cut to the intake and exhaust valves. For a truck this old it has had no problems other than a new transmission at 155k. We would suggest sticking with the stock 5.
This was before the days of electric radiator cooling fans, demanding instead that wind tunnel-like fan shroud that spanned the distance between the engine-driven fan and the radiator. Transmission applications fall under the same situation. With its 25-gallon tank, the four-wheel-drive truck got 16 miles per gallon in the city and 20 miles per gallon on the highway. The style of this truck is my favorite, the split headlights and the gauges just have a cool look to them. That limits the number of engines that are out there for retrieval. More likely, the fuel pressure will read 10 to 11 psi. Originally produced in 1985, the L96 added tuned-port fuel injection and aluminium cylinder heads to the 350-cubic inch V8 family.
It is just as fun sitting at a red light as it is stepping on it. Assuming we are talking about the heater,two likely senarios are the fan motor has burned out on one speed or the fan switch is defective. At wide-open throttle, the computer switches to its base fuel map and the additional fuel pressure will increase fuel flow and assuming the engine needs the additional fuel will increase power. Rebuild it if it needs it and learn how to tune it because it will offer outstanding part-throttle response. Could also be a wire problem but highly unlikely because ti is a plug in which would most likely result in complete failure.
These hard-core Olds guys have developed a big-port head that they claim flows 329 cfm on the intake at 0. It was equipped with production No. Brakes shockingly good for such a heavy machine - and for the most part the engine is strong. You also asked about aluminum heads other than the Edelbrock castings. The L98 engine produced by Chevrolet in 1989 was the continuation of the small-block Chevrolet V8 first offered on Chevrolet vehicles for the 1955 model year.
Worth it to me though! Primary Use: Utility towing boats, transporting cargo, etc. The specifications of the engine are the same as in the Corvette, but the L98 was only paired with an automatic transmission in the 1989 Z28 trim. As we said, the body panels are completely different, but the many different sheetmetal companies such as Year One, Goodmark, Original Parts Group, and many others offer tons of good stuff like hoods, quarter-panels, floorpans, rocker panels, bumpers, and just about anything else you might need. The 350 uses a much smaller 4. Not For Sale Not Now Not Ever — most fun truck i have ever been in near or even heard of it has a 350 with stainless steel stacks custom made flat bed with custom made tool boxes and is equiped with everything you need for construction. The actual throttle plate diameters for the 4.
It can even start and stop several times on a small trip. They are the next generation car crafters who will keep this whole industry going. The length of the truck ranged from 194. Peak horsepower was produced at 4,300 rpm, while peak torque was produced at 3,200 rpm. Love At First Sight — Though this truck has given me quite a few scares and cost me a pretty penny I wouldn't trade it for the world.
These companies can supply the parts and a compatible chip as a package that has a much better chance to be correct on the first try. Even on a Q-jet-equipped, small-block, 350 Chevy, the exhaust is the most critical point. Did you know a stock Q-jet will flow at least 750 cfm? Some versions of this engine produced 245 horsepower when used with a 3. Hand screw the bolts back in. That huge shroud can be eliminated with the use of a pair of efficient electric fans mounted directly behind the radiator. Stock cams produce relatively low lift, so the back cut will improve flow in that area. Gettin the stock radio out of an 80's Caprice is probably the most difficult thing to do.
