    CLEVELAND ENGINE TALK

    i bought a heap of parts from america to finish off the engine ,now just a waiting game until everything arrives,good thing is i made a friend over there who has a mountain of 400s and 429/460s,we video on messenger and he is dying for a set of 302c closed heads (lol),he finds aussie clevo stuff a real goldmine,and giving him the rundown on info about how we got the tooling from the states then started pouring our own clevo stuff was a real eye opener for him,he did not even no about the D1AE high nickel 400 block i had,he has gone on a rampage looking one in the states.amazing when you find someone on the other side of the world that is right into all the stuff you love yourself,we have already got an idea about loading his container full of $200 complete 460s and 400s as where he is there is a abundance of them,a once a year shipment should be plenty to muck around with and sell,well thats the idea at this stage ,from the info i have dug up so far its double the price of a container ATM,from what it used to be,and our dollar is poor as well,but will keep it on the backburner for the moment,probly one of the reasons its very hard to find a 460 engine latley.if the deal works out i would love a few 429s just for info sake,you no,usual strip and rebuild while photos and description.

    Oh it is rusted out! I'll grab some photos tomorrow. So I paid $600 for it. I'm happy with that for the diff, fuel tank etc. that I can use. I'll sell off the bits that are usable and then scrap the shell. Guy I bought it off, paid $2999 for it last September!

    There are still a lot of used but rebuildable 302 heads kicking around, can be had for not much. Still, in the States their aftermarket alloys are a lot cheaper than ours, and rebuilding factory iron 2Vs would be less and less feasible for HP per dollar. If he insists on getting hold of some, maybe you could strike a deal with him? Sent from my CPH2197 using Tapatalk

    I think the bloke I bought it off got ripped bad. I'll have to cut the floor of that fibreglass area out to get to the tank. Guy who originally put that in must have been convinced he would never have to change a fuel pump!

    9 inch air filter for weber 34

    I'd go for the acid etch prime method first.. Worst case scenario it might chip and if it does, just wash it down with thinners to get the paint off then sand or fine blast it before painting again. I reckon the etch will be good enough though. Not something your going to be handling all the time.

    You can paint over chrome, you will only see the outer edge right? Get some rough as guts sandpaper, tear the chrome finish up so the paint has something to bond to, then cross sand with 80 grit, that will hold colour. Smooth surface can also be sprayed over with etching spray and then sprayed with black also. Sent from my motorola edge 20 pro using Tapatalk

    That timing chain is a standard Morse chain. Multi link for maximum quiet. Multi keyed sprocket is for advancing/retarding the cam. Reckon that round corky is for under the oil filler cap. ??

    The 460 gasket set is huge I guess that's why it's soooo expensive,it don't come with the factory steel manifold tray that's why I bought one cheap as I'm using the cast iron manifold,gerg what the hell are all these other gaskets and round cork thing.could be later efi stuff ? As 1 gasket set does both engines Sent from my SM-A125F using Tapatalk
