Chip Off The Old Block

Part 4 – Installing the timing set

In this episode of Chip Off The Old Block, Bob and Josh will show you how to assemble and install the timing set and cover on the Cadillac 390 Engine that is going in the 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz.

Compared to other parts of the engine assembly, this process is more on the easy side, but you still want to make sure it’s done correctly and efficiently. Timing matters when it comes to engines and it’s advised that you take your time when lining things up and positioning specific parts on the block.

Thanks for watching and enjoy!
