About this book
Even though the first and second generation of small-block Chevy engines have been on the market forever, there is still a confusing array of configurations that this engine has been released in over the years. Did you know that the famed Chevy 302cid engine used in early Z-28s was pretty much a 327 bore with a 283 stroke in it? Yet to be original, you need to have the original DZ stamped 302 block, and the properly coded crankshaft for that particular application. Are you confused which crank and block combination yield 377 and 383 cubic-inch displacements? Look no further. In this all-color edition of the Chevrolet Small Block Parts Interchange Manual, these mysteries are solved. Includes information on cranks, rods, cylinder heads, intake manifolds, exhaust manifolds, ignitions, and more. It also includes casting and serial number identification guides to help you through the myriad of available parts in salvage yards, swap meets, and on the internet. Also, solid information on performance modifications is included where applicable. If you are building a salvage yard stroker motor from individual parts, looking to make a numbers matching engine for your collectible musclecar, or simply looking to see which parts work together, Chevrolet Small-Block Parts Interchange Manual is a must-have addition to your library.

    Accel GM HEI Corrected Distributor Cap

    Great idea... but it doesn't work worth a dang... Installed one on my Chevy 350 engine... Had problems getting the engine to start.. but it seemed to work OK after I got all the connections seated correctly.. Man this thing is machined a little too tightly... After getting the engine started it seemed to run fine at first, but within a matter of minutes started acting like it was out of time, kept falling on its face, missing, and back firing.. I rechecked the timing and all connections and they appeared to be correct... So I pulled everything apart and tried again.. ... Same problem.. Reinstalled my old AC Delco cap, retimed the engine and it purred like a kitten... Removed everything again and reinstalled the ACCEL cap,the engine started detonating and running like it was out of time... Used a multi-meter to check the top and bottom of the cap and it appears to have the firing order (1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2) set correctly, but there must be something wrong inside the Cap that is causing... 1/5 jays49 - See all my reviews This review is from: Accel 8141R Red Corrected GM HEI Distributor Cap for V8 Engine (Automotive) Great idea... but it doesn't work worth a dang...

    What a waste of time and money

    0 1/5 madmike - See all my reviews This review is from: Accel 8141R Red Corrected GM HEI Distributor Cap for V8 Engine (Automotive) Put the cap on. looks nice and neat. Drove around for two days and misfire became more prominent. Checked wires with a inductive timing light. #5 was missing erratically. I didnt have time for this. Put it all back together with stock cap and ran perfect. I should have read reviews before purchasing this junk. What a waste of time. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 11, 2013
