Excellent work. I am surprise there was not more oil burning on the headers without the covers. It generally flies everywhere. All the same nice result - clearly a fair amount of tuning still required to do though you should be very happy with your result. It feels great to have your first engine start up.

I am ready with suggestions for phase 2 Poke


I will someday think of something clever to say.

Is it possible for someone to change the topic title? Its a 289 and the 302 in the title shits me..

I think it will sink in a bit more boof once i drive it again, was knackered last night driving home! Do the videos work?

And yeah, as soon as it ran for a few seconds oil was going everywhere so we put the covers back on. Question - the rockers seem really ticky/loud but i installed them correctly..is this because they are roller rockers now?

Indulge me with your suggestions.


Cheers, Tony.

The rockers should not be loud at all - if
1) You have preloaded the hydraulic lifters correctly
2) You have the right oil in the engine
3) They are not hitting the rocker covers

I would assume no 3 as those covers often get hit around the PVC valve internal cover.

BTW: Videos worked - nicely done. Like the carbi back fire the most - made me laugh as it just about always happens and always makes every one jump back in surprise. At least no hair got burnt.

Yes I have lost eyebrows at times from leaning over the engine turning the distributor Laughing

Done, although all the replies will still have the old topic subject text in them because each reply can have a different subject description.

I think he is running it in for Mike then moving onto the next engine. Poke

Excellent work. It is a huge milestone and you have done a good job. Should update your vid post as I watched them in the wrong order. Could not believe you started it up so easily and then fine tuned the mixture screw to have it running so well. Then realised I watched the last vid first-doh!

Like Hybrid and others I would imagine, the first bang scared the buggery out of me- god bless y-tube for being able to edit it out ;-)

I have now fixed the order of the videos. Now you can see we didnt get the engine perfect first go. Also, the very first kick in the guts was not captured on video as it wasnt for very long because we didnt want to keep the neighbours up at 2am..

Yeah we all jumped but no loss of hair Wink2


Cheers, Tony.

Took her for a decent drive last night. Apparently the intersection of tonkin hwy and collier rd has a speed camera on it...

She ran nicely though, only issue is that i wouldve done about 100km and went through 2/3 of a tank. I'll go to my old mate in bassendean tomorrow to get the carby sorted.

Any idea why it could be drinking so much? Besides that fact i was giving it heaps all over the place


Cheers, Tony.

The right foot determines fuel use...

From the video of the exhaust it appears to me that when you accelerate you get a momentary lean out then a rich flood. Once your jets are sorted you need to look at the accelerator pump.

Any way, fun costs fuel so enjoy it.


Edit: Have you pulled a plug to read it?

150km to a tank is not surprising if you were flogging its ass everywhere.
That would suggest 300km to a tank when driving normally... sounds normal to me.

Bloody hell it seems excessive though! She never used that much fuel before the rebuild even when running on 6 or 7.. I'll see what the carby bloke says after i tell him the issues.

Hybrid your comment is fair though, i was fairly flogging it! All part of the wearing in process Laughing


Cheers, Tony.
