    "...i know its a roller motor because i have seen the roller rockers when i replaced the valve cover gaskets..." you do know that when we speak about "a roller engine" the reference is to the lifters - not the rockers? There are many a flat tappet cam engines that have roller tip rockers - which is what you have indicated seeing replacing your valve cover gaskets.

    I'm also curious why you had the intake "re plained" - I'm assuming that you mean milled - but for what reason?

    I like the sound - but agree with others here that you'll need to dig a bit deeper and start providing some engine and head numbers to allow us to help you out.

    Best,
    Glenn
    i know that the rockers them selfs dont make it a roller motor. i was just stating that i saw the roller rockers when i took the valve covers off. i know that that in its self doesn't make it a roller motor but most of the time that indicates that someone went to the trouble of doing the rockers which usually means the lifters were done to. and as for the milling (i was just called it re plaining) it was because the clutch fan had failed and over heated the motor slightly prior to me buying it and because of the slight over heat there was a slight anti freeze leak between the intake and the block so i decided while fixing the clutch fan to replace the intake gasket and to mill the intake flat again just to make sure it didn't warp at all.

    If you pulled the intake you should have been able to tell if it was a roller motor or not., I smell a rat.

    You must have some deep pockets, I could pull a sbc intake when I was your age.

    I think we have an enthusiastic young man that is interested in cars and american muscle. Not as many of them around as there was when I was his age. I can remember be tutored by my Dad as a young lad, him teaching and explaining things, boy did I make my mistakes, but he seldom lost his patience. Sure would be nice to see more young people getting involved in our sport. Maybe we could have more patience...

    I have a 19 year old grandson that does almost all of the work on the 66 Mustang I gave him and I have tons of patience, but not for posers.

    I taught my 2 year old grandsom how to ride a tricycle today---------next week how to weld, and then we are going to put a full roller, pratt-whitney 985 radial engine with 6 blade prop on it-its one of those plastic Harley Davidson trikes with a liftable seat with a storage area under it-----genuine full roller plastic wheels with those fancy snap on cap retainers. He's only 2 years old now but will be 3 by the end of June 2016, and he fully understands how to use a 3/8 reversable rachet wrench. The engine is a crate engine from a salvage yard and comes with everything except the spark plugs-there are 2 per cylinder and altho they cost over $70 per plug, I think we can run it on just one per cylinder with one of those red plastic plugs in the other hole. I'll try to post an U tube vid of it as soon as the weather warms up and we can get it outside

    I was hoping the car community was a little better then this. Out of all the people i have talked to about cars not once have i had some one disrespect me so much because they assume things. everything i said is 100% true if you believe me sure if you dont what ever but please don't disrespect me by calling me a poser. Do you have any idea how much i paid for that car, the work i put into it, the money i put into it, the time i have used up instead of being with friends to clean it, work on it or to go for a drive. How much i have to work to be able to pay for it. I love my car. so why would i go and make up lies about it when i simply wanted to know if you guys could help me out. so please don't disrespect me any more.

    If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it must be a duck and I'm probably a racist to boot. The BS is getting pretty deep and I didn't ridicule, disrespect or insult the lad, and if I do you'll know it.

    I young rodder am not disrespecting you or anyone else by asking a question, which was meant to help you, the reason I ask is generally if the heat is hot enough to warp a intake, which does NOT have the hottest part of the combustion cycle running through it (this being the exhaust cycle) generally if it had that much heat build up and it did warp your intake, your heads are toast!
    So indeed there are those trying to help you, on the same part some of the guys on here are older rodders with more knowledge than you and I combined or will ever learn, I promise that, and they get a kick out of a little humor even if its in bad taste for the person asking the question, so roll with it they'll come around I am sure you being a yound man give a joke once in awhile where the person your kiddin' doesn't like it. Keep rodding, stick around and have fun but read between the lines sometime!
