PONTIAC 455, PART 4

 

Build, text and photos by Mike Mavrigian

 

Note: This engine, as well as all of our engine projects, is designed, test-fit and assembled by Mike Mavrigian’s Birchwood Automotive facility in Creston, OH.

Now that the block, oil pan, valley cover

plate and timing cover have been painted,

we can begin final assembly.

 

Regardless of how clean you think the block may be, don’t assume anything. Take the time to perform one final block wash/rinse/dry.
