I have a stock GM Mexican Crate Motor, didn't come with a carb so I threw in an old worn holley 750 double pumper during build.  It runs terrible so now I'm moving on to replacing carb. Can anyone suggest a good carb to put on it. Just a daily driver that has some balls, may do cam upgrade in future, just trying to get it running good for now.

Has any put aftermarket billet switches in replace of their factory door panel switches? I'm looking to relocate them to the console, if not to the ashtray.

I recently bought an 84 GMC C35 Crew cab dually.  The 454 in it has about 10k on the rebuild,  the TH400 has about 8k on its rebuild. 

My 74 is no longer my daily driver,  and I want to pull the 350 out and drop it in the dually to try and coax some mpg's out of the 6 wheeler. That leaves me a 454 with no home. Hmmm...

My research has shown that the 454 takes a 12" Clutch and flywheel.  Can I run the 11" setup that is hooked to my 350 now? My budget is tight right now, and I'd love to be able to reuse parts.

Hey all!
I'm soon to be a happy owner a rebuilt sbc 400 motor going back into my 77 K10.
It will come assembled minus the accesory items (water pump, Power steering, alternator, starter, etc)
I've been looking around at serpentine systems and am curious on which side the alternator, AC would be on, or if I can put it on either side? The truck Has some AC componets (currently on passenger side) but it's not complete and not running.  The new engine will not will be running the AC until all the AC parts are gathered.
So I'm assuming it would be wise to put the alternator on driver side, and get an AC delete pulley until I get the AC parts? Or do i just skip the AC portoin all together and then buy the new belt later to include the AC?
Also I'm a little lost on the whole reverse/normal rotation of the water pump and how that effects everything else and how would I know which i need, does it matter? Just as long I get one and everything else is set up to match that water pump?
I'm also planning on getting new radiator, as I've read on here 400's can be problematic in overheating and thus I will most likely be running an electric fan or possibly a dual fan (that is undecided) as I'm sure it depends on room I have left after engine is installed.  This will affect the serpentine system as well? And may even answer the question about the reverse rotation since the serpentine won't be running the fan.
I know that was kind of all over the place and I apologize, but any help would advise would be great!
Thank,
Derik

Alright, so I have the heads back on my engine, torqued to spec.I'm now in the process of lashing the valves.

I'll go and get cylinder 1 at TDC, and lash the appropriate valves all around. Then, I'll flip it on over to TDC 6 and lash the valves for that TDC. here's where my problem occurs. When I get everything done, all the valves I lashed for TDC 1 have LOOSE ROCKER ARMS. Like, they're a few turns of the locking nut backwards away from coming off off the pushrod end loose. Anybody know what could be causing this?
