That's sad. I guess things have changed since I built my engine somewhere around 2004-2005. If I remember correctly, I used a rollmaster billet timing set and did not have to do anything to it. Been running great for around 15 years.

15 years is a long time in the after market world. Even the Rollmaster product has changed companies and has changed in design. Again, you have to check them all.

I just have to mock up the York Compressor Kit and she is ready to crate!
I like the look of the cast aluminum powder coated intake and rocker arm covers. Has a serious look to it.

Pretty. But I sure wish you'd stop giving me expensive idears.

High quality junk here: intro thread and slow build thread

Did you know? Willys is just Willis spelled differently, but pronounced the same. Neither Willy nor his apostrophe are involved.

Very nice clean work. I always appreciate simplicity, even when it's quite complicated.

Hi Rick,


Great job! I was already fascinated by your first "budget" build.



Now I am getting closer to my own build. I could get a core 360 with the right heads to use the 343 pistons.



Some questions I have, just to know what I need to order:


- Have you used new bolts on the rebuild or did you re-use the old ones?
- Same with the valve springs. New or used dones?
- what is the difference between the cam in this build compared to your preferred 268H? This one has better torque at lower RPM, but less HP at the high end?


I am not looking to build a race monster, I just want the engine to perform according to its possibilities.


Other parts I will be using as I have them on my engine:


-Edelbrock Performer intake
-Holley 4 barrel 600CFM
-IMPCO 300 Propane system

-Standard headers, but Smog "humps" are cleaned
-2,5" dual exhaust
-MSD 8523 Ignition


Thanks!
Robin

- Have you used new bolts on the rebuild or did you re-use the old ones?
I use the old stock main bearing cap screws and head bolts after inspecting and cleaning. I replace all of the rest of the bolts with new grade 8 or stainless. - With the exception of the stud/bolt that the power steering pump bracket mounts to.



- Same with the valve springs. New or used dones?
Most of the time I replace the valve springs to match up with the cam. I might use the original ones on a stocker if they look good and check ok on a spring tester.


- what is the difference between the cam in this build compared to your preferred 268H? This one has better torque at lower RPM, but less HP at the high end?
Most of the time it is personal preference. According to the specifications the 268H is geared toward more mid range but I have found it to work well at the entire rpm range. In this build, the cam came as part of the kit so there was no other option. It is the same as the Edelbrock Performer cam. The Performer cam sounds like a stock cam with no lope at all. The 268H has a nice little lopedy lope at idle. The is my little cheat sheet for cams.

Do you have an approximate hp/TQ figure for this style build?

It is very similar to the first one in this Dyno Test thread. I would put it close to 300 hp and 370 #/ft of torque.

Nice to have some kind words and nice to see the finished product!


Hi Rick,
Great Engine!
Since 2 weeks the AMC 360 is installed.
And every time I'm starting the engine I've a big smile in my face.
Thank you for building such a great engine. Attached some pictures.
Regards, Ron Schelling
