Big Block Oil Pump Spring Change

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Big Block Oil Pump Spring Change
I've been told I can easily change the spring on the oil pump on my 383 without removing the pump itself. It looks tight but I should be able to get the cap off ok but there's not much room behind it. Has anyone done this and how easy (or not) is it? Thanks for any help. RRDon

Identify emergency calls

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Identify emergency calls
I thought i'd share what recently happened to me, as a heads up, for others, who may face the same thing. My parents failing health was cause for them to recently move to assisted living. The facility we chose has an onsite nurse 24 7. My siblings and i were told, if there are any medical emergencies, we would be contacted immediately. I didn't give the matter any thought, but assumed if i were called, it would show up on my phone, as the centers name, or at least be the main number...

Lifter Pump Up

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Lifter Pump Up
Anyone ever have lifters that pumped up and shouldn’t have?

I bought a setup from Hughes and I’m running into issues. I bought their HyLift Johnson fast bleed down lifters and ‘matched’ valve springs. Long story short, I just ran them at zero lash and no float. With even .0125� preload (1/4 turn) I can’t get over 5000 RPM. Springs are 150# installed and 380# at .650.

Called Hughes and I was told I probably need more spring, even though I got the springs they said to get. Ones now...
