Looks normal to me except the belt tensioner. The big AMC cars stood the AC compressor up-right like that and the small cars and Jeeps laid them down on the side. If that ectra bracket is home made,...

The original timing covers both AMC and Buick were made at Dohler Jarvis in Toledo. I saw them hanging in their display case about a hundred years ago.. Well, it was in the early 80's before they...

I use NGK FR5 Stock No. 7373 on all of the AMC engines that I build. They have a 5/8" hex which makes them easier to install and they made a big difference on the dyno.

The 502-2 heads are rated at 58cc so your compression ratio will be higher. Other than that, no real differences.

I am not a fan of the mid plate. Just have the oil pump cover lapped to get a nice finish.

Here is one that I am finishing up for a Jeep SCRAMBLER. It is a 8.5:1 360 with a 268H cam and Torker intake manifold. The 268H is really not a big cam compared to a stock 401 cam. It has more...

Do you have a Duraspark ignition system?
Every Duraspark distributor that we have dyno tested had to be mechanically modified to keep the timing from going to infinity.
