Chip Off The Old Block – Installing The Heads

Chip Off The Old Block

Part 7 – Installing the heads

In this episode of our engine series, Bob and Josh will show you how to carefully assemble and install the heads on the Cadillac 390 engine, which is going in our 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz. The valves, guides, and springs are all part of this installation as we take the necessary steps to put them in, so the engine will be running super clean.

Please note that the machine work was done on these heads many years before we acquired them.

Enjoy!
