Kevin Lee replied to Ethan Novinsky's discussion Fuel filter location on small block 350 causing bad starts? in the group engines
"I really doubt it has anyting to do with your filter location. Actually it is a good idea before the pump just to save it from getting dirt in it. Also too, you said your problem is on intial start up, not after it has been run for a while. Unless…"

Kevin Lee replied to gbodyboi's discussion im lost in the group engines
"500HP is an easy reality with a big block. You wont need a lot of radical parts either. I dont know enough about your heads though, I am terrible at casting numbers. But on what you have asked. On connecting rods, it all depends on what your plans…"

Kevin Lee replied to Arthur Hoge's discussion One Piece Oil Pan Gasket in the group engines
"Glad you got it figured out Arthur! I am even more surprised that I helped! That does make sense though, going back a year. Sounds like you wont be long in having it back to life then"

Kevin Lee replied to Arthur Hoge's discussion One Piece Oil Pan Gasket in the group engines
"I will be honest, I didnt know that GM made a 2 piece rear main after 1986. I thought they were all 1 piece rear main by 1992. The pan sealed to the rear cap on the 2 piece, which it was smaller than the 1 piece. If your local dealership still has…"

"I agree with everyone Ron, sounds like an excellent group. Like Grampy, I am always up on learning new things and techniques. Actually, I have a couple doors here I am going to fix for a friend, I should post a couple pics of them to get your…"

Kevin Lee commented on hotrod cadillac fleetwood's group engines
"Scott, the best performance upgrade for that car is to put in a 5.0! Ford had a LOT of problems with that engine, why it is so hard to find parts for it like Arthur said. Back in the day, Ford was even offering a swap kit so you could drop in a…"

"Well, Impala did mention looking for Pantydropper, so I thought I should look for them too, LOL"

Kevin Lee commented on Gearhead's group MUSCLECAR
"Grampy is right Impala, a crank kit with bearings, and a balancer is the minimum needed to fix it. Since you dont race it, I agree also that you dont have to go crazy and put in a performance crankshaft. This is one thing i do worry though. It…"

"Sorry that I was right JP. But I am glad you found the problem. Summit should take it back though. You might even ask to upgrade to the MSD"

Kevin Lee commented on Gearhead's group MUSCLECAR
"JP, I never have used one of those distributors, so I am not up on their electronics. But it very well could be a signal error between that dist and the new module. If you dont want to go the expense of a performance didt like a MSD, what I would do…"

"Chiseum, they were 2.2L turbo engines. Most were 5spd manuals, would have to check on the trans code though."

"Nice clean job on the engine compartment Arthur. and are they ever done? I know with me they are not, always come up with something new to want to do! JP, I had been reading on your dilemma here. What I find interesting is that it ran OK BEFORE the…"

"Bruce, there are too many variables, like what kind of vehicle you are working on, and what kind of scan tool you are using. Some manufacturers will give you datastream during cranking, some dont. If you are using a cheaper brand generic scan tool,…"

I hope your friend feels better, I'm going to the G.S.T.A. show later this month at the Collisium in the Minnesota State Fairgrounds with Jon Kosmoski to debut his '34 Phaenton, you see it under the plastic cover in my latest pics I've posted, there will be more posted before and after the show.

Been pretty busy lately with all sorts of different things happening, hopefully soon I will be getting a little bit more of a break so I can get some new postings and Pic's up on here! I'll be talking to all of you guys again real soon!

As far as steering wheels with airbags go, there isn't too many choices. Because of liability issues with the bags, nobody is willing to tackle it. The cost of the insurance to produce 'em would be crazy! Most guys I have seen just remove the bags and wheel, and install an aftermarket wheel. Not real good for safety, but if you're going for pure looks... Another option is check with Grant. They make some steering wheel covers that don't look bad. The leather wheel in my Mustang was worn, and they wanted a LOT for a new one. So I got a Grant cover for about $50 and it's all good.

You are right Kevin, Maybe I could jump back in and at least offer a different perspective without pissing too many people off...LOL Sorry to say, I can't find your engine specs, however, if you would get them to me once again, I will look in to a few cam options for you.

Take Care

Hey Kevin, How have you been?
Regarding that 12:1 engine suggestion, it is obvious that the guy knows and understands engine building, however, to suggest such a package and then state how he thinks the system can be beat for smog controls is JUST WRONG in my opinion.

I started to help the guy out and then basically got jumped on, so, I backed out to see where this leads. Don't know how I would be interpeted if I jumped back in now and made different suggestions?

Maybe I will just to read the other guys comments about me...LOL

As for your cam on the Pro-Charger Engine, what specs were you looking for? If I can be of help...just let me know

Hey Kevin, I have some questions regarding timing.I have a question regarding the vac advance for the hei. whats the procedure and which do i set first after base timing? I currently have the btdc se at 4 degrees. I am going to set the advance to 10 degrees like u suggested but how do i set the vac advance as well. im currently getting some pinging at low rpm's i would like the car to run as good as i can get it. so where do i go from here?
