Four and five speed Manual Trans. Drivability with this cam is fair to decent depending on your vehicle weight and final gearing.
Do your research using several sources, and be sure to read between the lines. Most cars from the 60's and 70's had very low compression, especially when nearly worn out, and this is why the detonation did not destroy the engine.
Don't be misled by the term "hardened," as this is nothing more than a stock style low cost push rod. This particular engine only had approx.
They are lightweight in design, yet very strong. Doing this may greatly reduce the chance of oil leaks, and reduce oil temps. Using half a quart less oil can greatly reduce potential oil leaks. Our engines are custom-built to our customers' specifications and are shipped, in general, in 2-5 weeks, perhaps sooner, depending on the season. These rods do look impressive.
Every car from the factory has this feature. We have built approximately 5000 engines using the Wiseco pistons.
Our recommendations will change from time to time. A tad on the rich side is not a problem and can help resist detonation; a tad on the lean side will generate the most power and increase fuel mileage.
Important note. Our experience in years past with such rods and cranks has been disappointing to say the least. This timing set will likely last for the life of the engine. This is a file photo.
If you have a hard cranking issue, purchase an in-car timing controller or ignition kill switch.
