Both lifters in the pic are junk. Lifter bodies are steel, the cam is cast iron. There's no way the cam isn't damaged.

There's no way in hell that an engine with a lifter that has the complete bottom worn off isn't full of metal shavings and particles. Your main, rod and cam bearings all have metal embedded in them...

#4 main and 7 & 8 rods are usually the first to show starvation problems. If you've checked those, you're probably good. A rod won't knock unless the bearing is junk.
It can be so frustrating...

As long as you have good oil pressure, the only good reason to freshen it would be leakage past the rings or valves/stems. As long as it passes compression and/or leakdown tests and isn't blowing oil...

Shouldn't be any problem. All GM smallblocks (I'm not including LS engines here) are the same dimensionally. Exhaust should hook up, transmission, pretty much everything. The only thing that may...

TKO-600 parts

Where do you guys get transmission parts for your TKO-600? I scored one for a Ford (I know, I know, but it was a real smokin' deal) that I want to convert. I understand I'll need an input shaft,...

Fuel pump pushrod should always be checked before you decide it's a rod bearing knock.
Flexplates tend to act different when not loaded as compared to when it's dropped in gear and under load. Mine...

You better pour that Vortec head - every one I've cc'd came in at either 62 or 63cc's. If it's cut .020, they'll be closer to 60.

Unless you flatten a lobe on a flat tappet cam. The teardown/cleaing/repairs/new bearings will outweigh the cost of going with roller the first time by a good bit. If it's a mild build, you don't...

No reason not to use them. I've seen the short travel versions hit 7500 on a dyno without a blink.
To me, it's a no-brainer, kinda like shaft rockers on big solid roller cammed engines.

Other than tall decks, that's the only Mark IV block that was only fitted with 4-bolt caps. All others can be either 2 or 4 bolt.

You probably already know this, but the ball joint separator isn't always able to do the job by itself. It's designed to put pressure on the bolt end while you whack hell out if it. I've never had...

If it's the original engine in your '81, you won't even have to spend the coin to upgrade it to handle more power.

I've seen .050's but this is the first I've heard of .060. That's a big cut, but there's no reason it shouldn't be fine. Owner posted on SpeedTalk that it's been re-nitrided.
