They are stronger, thus they can be made smaller and....smaller is lighter, than Tia

Another good vid man. I also switched to Brad Penn and made sure oil drains were aligned, only 7 Qt pan in fox body though, but it's rear sump with scraper, kick outs and trap doors, so hopefully that helps. Kevco pan. Looking forward to seeing what the bores look like, hopefully o.k.
You need a few more BG400's !

Cool video Tim. I’ve had good luck using Brad Penn oil here too. Sorry to hear the Track Boss block delay but look forward to your freshening up on your old mill. I totally agree with you on the garage heating comments. I’ve always used kerosene for garage heat here and would like to do something else in the future. I think your collecting BG fuel pumps might be as bad as I am with collecting 351C parts!! LOL

Thanks man. It will all work out the way it should. Yes have had my share of fumes for sure. Like you also have extensive collection of Parts. Sure beats collecting coins or stamps. Stay tuned.

Thanks for making these videos. I’ve been subscribed for a couple weeks now and I’m ready to see the new block in a video good luck. Has anyone heard any update on the CGI block yet?

Glad everything on the Ole 408 so far looks good after pulling the heads off. April will be here before ya know it! Hopefully the bottom end looks good since the oil n drain plug didn’t seem to have any metal collection. Are you gonna bother cutting the filter open since your gonna go thru the bottom end anyways?

Your welcome. thanks for subscribing. I know the second round of aluminum blocks have been poured, mine is one. Once it gets machined and bronze bushings fitted, have him ship to me, along with a callies crank I have for the build. The cgi has been put on back burner, as the people really want a cast block. I think Tim needs to get the blocks out there, most popular is grade 40 iron, I may wrong on the grade stuff. Get some engines built and tested, only Steve Ks number one build has been dynoed. That is getting some trick up grades. I would also like a cast iron one too, in the future.

I dont know tater, if I got a few minutes, may slice her open for forensic evaluation. It looks good so far. Clean up parts today, and get a better look. Thanks for staying tuned.

Good stuff Tim, nice to see everything coming apart ok and looking good. I know you're not one for change but just thought I'd mention for others that Jomar makes an oil filter with no by-pass, part# 9025, has more filter area and claims 1 psi increase. You can still put your magnet on it! Actually I'm going to get one of those.
