Information about Oldsmobile V8 engines
In this video I talk about the "late" Oldsmobile V8 and offer tips on how
to identify them by number.
"Late" in this instance means 1964-1990. Early('49-64) Olds engines are an
entirely different block, etc.
Sometimes my info gets a bit twisted when it stays inside my head for a
while, so a correction is that '77-80 heads are 3A, not 4A. 4A heads are
Also, to clarify and avoid confusion, this...7 A is a 350 head, this...7A
is a later 307 head. You can also tell the difference easily by the ports.
Late 307 and 260 ports are half the size of any other versions.
Trivia: The Olds 403 was used in 1977-79 Pontiac Trans-Am's, but not all of
Of note...the engine in the video is painted the incorrect shade of gold,
which appears to be the Krylon generic gold. The proper shade is slightly
darker and less "glitzy"
Chevy Big Block Engine Starting
We just finished our new Chevy Big-Block engine, wich will soon find a home
in our 1980 Camaro. It
is just one of many BBC's that I have built. It is a "street friendly" 10:1
all forged, mechanical roller with too many goodies to list . It sounds
crazy and I can't wait to feel the tire shreading performance.

Me and my dad see my dad's old car for the first time in 20 years.
He sold the car over 20+ years ago when he was an alcoholic. Said he
probably would have died in it. This is the first time he saw it since he
sold it over 20+ years ago. The car does look in relative good shape, we
have no idea what has been done with the car over the past 20 years. It
obviously wasn't sitting there for 20 years and nobody claims it to be. Pay
attention, people. 1964 Buick Rivera. 425 Wildcat V8 w/ 427 horsepower.

1968 Olds 442 Tribute Car With 455 and Muncie 4-Speed Driving
This is a 1968 Olds 442 Replica or Tribute car. It started out as a Cutlass
S 2-door hardtop with a 350 Rocket and column shift automatic. I removed
all traces of things that would say it was a cutlass. I put on original 68
442 parts such as grill, emblems, glove box door with emblem, trunk rocket
emblem and original factory hurst shifter with 442 molded in. I put in a
1969 455 from a Toranado that I rebuilt and added an Edelbrock Torker
intake manifold and headers. It is pushing 400 HP. You could not get a 68
or 69 442 with a 455 from GM. GM had a 400 Cubic inch limit on A body cars.
Olds got around it by having a third party (Hurst) put 455's in a limited
number of cars but they were not made by GM or Olds. Also they were
automatics and this one is a 4-speed so you could not order this car ever.
It has vintage autometer gauges from the 70's as well as vintage cragar SS
mags. 15" x 8.5 on the rear and 14" x 7.5 on the front. I'm thinking of
selling it but I'm not sure yet. The engine has around 4 miles on the
rebuild. It has a new flowmaster Exhaust system and a muncie M-21 4-speed with
factory original shifter boot for non console cars. I have already painted
the door jams black in preparation for painting the car all black with a
gold stripe along the bottom of the car from front to rear.
My 1968 Olds 442, 425 HP 455, 4-Speed
This is the last video I shot of my 1968 Olds 442 That I built. I put in a
425 HP 455 and a Muncie 4-Speed. Man I love the sound of that car. You can
see the other videos of it as I was building it.
