  1. Thanks, I just don't know why it would be in a block stamped V8461335
  2. Thanks Leif! Maybe someone has a pic from a 55 manual...
  3. Thanks Willie! I was hoping you would have an answer... But was there a 264 that would have been in a 50 series?
  4. But doesn't the groove next to the center journal mean it is for a 40 series?
  5. I opened up another block to see what I could harvest and this is what I found. Is this normal? I doubt it was a swap, but who knows... Block stamped V8461335 Cam has groove in front of center journal, I can see a casting number on there that reads... 1H GM 452 B39 One of my other 50 series block has cam with no groove, I can't read the casting number because it looks like there is an X over it. It's block number is V5229585 Any thoughts? Thanks, Jerry
  6. CARS at www.oldbuickparts.com and www.bobsautomobilia.com or other searchable web sites on this forum.
  7. Rob, here is a shot of inside one i have open. You can see the pump drive and all the places that socket could fall! It needs to come out... maybe a flexable reteiver with a magnet on it will work?
  8. The one with no ridge is 2 to 3 10ths out from the standard 4" bore, I didn't have the other one checked yet...
  9. Thanks Mud! im just contemplating which block to start with... I'm probably going to use the one without the ridge/less wear... Jerry
  10. Does using a ridge reamer ruin a block? Do I need to bore it out if it was used? 1 block I have doesn't have the ridge and another one does... just wondering....
  11. Ok since it's so quiet... It being there have been no responses or questions... I have 2 sets of the 1165549 - 54 264/322 And 1 set of the 1166349 - 54 to 56 264/322 Which ones would you recommend for my rebuild? None of them have been checked out to see if they are any good.
  12. Answered my own question, thought I would share what I found! I cannot confirm accuracy... 1344214 1953 322 1343840 1953 322 1165549 54 264/322 1166349 54-56 264/322 1168930 56 322 1169349 56 322 1172889 59-60 364/401 1175109 56-59 322* 1185485 61-66 364/401/425 1190415 62-66 364/401/425 1196914 59-66 364/401/425 1374603 64-66 401/425 1376912 66 401/425 *Chev truck
  13. I am trying to identify some heads, does anyone know the casting numbers of the 54,55 & 56 322 heads? thanks...
  14. Thankyou Mark Shaw! For bringing this back to the topic at hand....
  15. NO! keep the Speedo under wraps...
  16. Thanks! I posted this on the Highway too, but changed/edited it to ask for bearing supplier recommendation. thanks, jerry
  17. Thanks willie! thats what I'll do...
  18. Would you recommend this for a 322 cam bearing removal/installation? I think it is adjustable to the 1.565/1.686 range. Or would you only have a pro do it? http://www.summitracing.com/parts/lil-18000/overview/ The same one is available on Amazon even less money...
  19. Just an FYI... Cable, Wisconsin is not in Minnesota! It is also a couple hours from me. Let's hope someone closer chimes in.
  20. There a couple of us here, where is the car?
  21. I have not considered it, but I'll look into it. I don't know if he will let any RM parts go because he has a couple projects lined up...
  22. I agree too! But I dont want to do it twice...
  23. CARS show them with the flange, Bob's shows them without... It may be a general picture and not the actual part. Maybe a phone call is in order. i will try to post pictures. Bob's on the left, CARS on the right. The ones I got from NAPA are like the ones on the left.
  24. A true craftsman in every sense of the word! If only you lived next door to me... Very nice work!
  25. The inner seal that I took out had a lip that was flush to the drum. It is the inside seal, the other grease seal is the cap on the end of the spindle. I'll check Bob's and CARS to see what have...
