Project X-Ram
« on: June 11, 2019, 03:48:05 PM »
I was going through some old GM NOS parts I had for years in storage that I though to use on the 302 X-Ram engine I will be building this summer and was wondering if these parts would work and if anyone has used these  type of light weight flywheel and if so did it improve performance? I also found a #140 off road cam that I plan on using and need to find out if that valve spring is correct for it? Thanks in advance.

My Z has the 140 cam and springs in it.  They had orange paint on them. If you have the aluminum retainers that were used with the springs, dont use them.  They were prone to cracking and bad things happen.  I was lucky mine survived
