A 35-ish page document/website on what does/doesn't work when building a Hot Holden 6: http://oldjohnno.id....
I stumbled across it in a Link from the Bolwell site.
He makes some VERY good points throughout it. Just be warned, it WILL take quite a while to read it all...

Iasked the question here recently about smooth or knurled crankshaft ends in regards to rope rear seals, and got the information required.The answer meant removing the crank out of my newly built engine as I had a smooth crank and a rope seal. The crank was out of a 400 Chevy and stroked etc to make a 383,and had a shooth surface on the crank.The engine was ran and obviously leaked,hence the question.I was due to start, and I wondered what seal was in VL V8 blocks as standard,as if it was neoprene the fix would be easier.I had presumed it was rope and built it as such,but can anyone confirm this please.
Thanks in advance.
