Howdy All- Pulled my first motor out last weekend- 292 c.i. one-barrel out of my new clean, clean, '69 C-20. (I know, I know, it's a beast!!) New long block came in today at the friendly parts store. I have a couple of real basic questions, so please bear with me, all you experienced gear-heads. 1- Labeled the crap out of everything as I took it apart, so i know the plug and wire order. How do I find TDC to set the initial timing? Is that what I do to set the initial timing? What the freak is initial timing? (The whole timing thing is like outer space, man.) 2- Any ideas on torque specs on the flywheel, clutch plate, and cast iron intake/exhaust manifold? Anything else I need to torque down carefully? 3- Break in procedure? Way back when, they told you to run it under various loads and speeds for couple of hundred miles, change the oil and filter, and you were good to go. Parts dweeb says that's not necessary any more, even though the engine isn't dyno'd or anything. (I think he's lying!) What would you suggest? 4- It probably expresses my ignorance best that I can only think to ask the above three questions. What important step or tip am I not even smart enough to ask for? All suggestions (o.k., most suggestions) will be most gratefully received. Thanks all- if this goes well, then the wife is gonna' let me try to swap the 350 in my '84 K-5 this summer. If it doesn't go well, maybe I'll ask the K-5 if I could swap out my old lady this summer!! Either way, it's win-win!! Thanks again!
