I recently received the gift (?) of one of these disco engines. I
was wondering if anyone had a decent source of info on it. So far I
know they had 145hp (pretty sad) and it is a 2 bolt block. What I'm
more wondering is, in light of its vintage smog era origins: is it any
sort of candidate for modern use? Before it made it's way to me
someone did add some performance oriented parts to it, edelbrock
intake manifold, holley carb, headers to dual exhaust. Right now it
sits in a 55 bel air 4 door, and it does move that big heavy car
around with some power...
So, any and all useful info you have, or a hint on a good website I
should check out, I'd sure appreciate it.
Thank you for taking your time to read my post.
ahhhh. i live about 100 miles from where i store my car. I'll get back
to you in about a week as to which castings... hey nows a good time to
ask: how would i go about finding the #. a hint of where to look?
Most likely. The valves should be 1.84 int. 1.5 exh. Not exactly
know for allowing great amounts of fuel and air through them. If they
had a right angled triangle on the side then they would be 350 heads,
double humps are fuelie or LT1 heads, etc. They all should have
casting marks that denote the general engine they came on. This info
is only good until about 1985 or so, when they changed to the top bolt
design, never had to rebuild many of those.
