Chevrolet Aluminum Cylinder Heads INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Before final installation of the cylinder heads, several things need to be checked to assure proper engine operation: 1. Piston to valve clearance – Minimum intake valve clearance should be .080″. Minimum exhaust valve clearance should be .100″. The point of minimum intake valve to piston clearance will usually occur somewhere between 5 and 15º ATDC during valve overlap. The point of minimum exhaust valve to piston clearance will usually occur 15º to 5º BTDC during valve overlap. Re-machining of the piston top eyebrows may be required with some pistons. 2. Proper lifter adjustment and rocker geometry – Check Lifter pre-load. Check clearance of push rod to guideplate. Rocker geometry should be checked making sure that the contact point of the roller remains properly on the valve tip and does not roll off the edge. Visual inspection of the rockers, valve springs, retainers, and pushrods should be made to ensure that none of these components come into improper contact with each other. If problems with valve train geometry occur, simple changes such as pushrod length may have to be made. OTHER ASSEMBLY TIPS When installing the sparkplugs and exhaust headers, be sure to use a high temperature anti-seize compound on the threads to reduce the possibility of thread damage in the future. Do not exceed a torque of 25 ft./lbs. on the intake manifold bolts and lubricate the bolt threads prior to assembly. If pushrod to cylinder head contact is a problem, loosen rocker studs and re-position guideplate as needed for clearance. INSTALLATION: Installation is the same as for original equipment cylinder heads. Consult service manual for specific procedures, if necessary. For 350 and smaller engines, use Fel-Pro head gasket #1003. #1003 has a flattened steel O-ring around each bore and will provide an excellent, long lasting seal. However, it will compress the aluminum and you must use #1003 for subsequent gasket changes to get a good seal. For 400 c.i.d. small blocks, use Fel-Pro #1014. YOU MUST DRILL “STEAM HOLES” IN CYLINDER HEADS FOR 400 ENGINES (see Figure 2). Be sure that the surface of the block and the surface of the head are thoroughly cleaned to remove any oily film before installation. Use alcohol or lacquer thinner on a lint-free rag to clean. Apply Loctite PST or suitable thread sealer to head bolt threads. Torque to 65 ft./lbs. in three steps (30-50-65) following the factory tightening sequence (see Figure 1). A re-torque is recommended after initial start-up and cool-down (allow 2-3 hours for adequate cooling)


CAMSHAFT AND HEADERS: The Street Tunnel Ram manifold is compatible with aftermarket camshafts and headers. Use Edelbrock Torker-Plus camshaft #5062 for more low RPM torque, or the Edelbrock Performer RPM camshaft #7162 for more high RPM power. Header primary tube diameter should be 1-7/8″. This may vary depending upon your particular engine specifications. PREP AND TUNING FOR POWER: 1. Specific applications may show an increase in performance through additional carburetor tuning. 2. Aftermarket distributor curve kits and aftermarket ignitions may be used with the Street Tunnel Ram intake manifold. 3. Use modified or high performance cylinder heads such as our Performer RPM, and port match the intake manifold to the heads. 3. The engine’s compression ratio should be at least 9.5:1 to work properly with Torker-Plus or Performer RPM camshafts. INSTALLATION PROCEDURE INTAKE MANIFOLD BASE 1. Use only recommended intake gaskets set when installing this intake manifold. 2. Fully clean the cylinder head intake flanges and the engine block end seal surfaces. 3. Apply Edelbrock Gasgacinch sealant P/N 9300 to both cylinder head flanges and to the cylinder head side of the gaskets, allow to air dry, and attach the intake gaskets. 4. Do not use cork or rubber end seals. Use RTV silicone sealer instead. Apply a ¼” high bead across each block end seal surface, overlapping the intake gasket at the four corners. This method will eliminate end seal slippage. 5. Install the intake manifold hold-down bolts. Hand tighten all bolts to approximately 5 ft./lbs. to center the manifold on the engine. WARNING: There is no gasket support for the manifold under the four bolt holes which are numbered 13,14,15, and 16 in Figure 1 below. Damage to the manifold will occur if these four bolts are over tightened. Hand tighten these bolts with a 6″ box-end wrench. DONOT use a torque wrench. 6. Torque all of the remaining manifold bolts in two steps by the sequence shown in Figure 1 to 25 ft/lbs. INTAKE MANIFOLD TOP 1. Apply Edelbrock Gasgacinch sealant P/N 9300 to the gasket mating surface and install the gasket and manifold top. 2. Install and tighten the supplied hold down bolts to 15-18 ft./lbs.
