Good source for rebuild kit

Post  67MercCat on April 11th 2012, 8:07 pm

Hey I'm looking for a good complete rebuild kit for my 429 (1970 block) and I found a few but I don't know if they're any good. I'm not looking for anything spectacular, I just want to build the engine back to it's original condition for now. Any suggestions?
Also how can I tell if I need undersized bearings? (STD, .010 .020 .030) I'm really new to this so I'm going at a snail pace.
Thanks fellas

the bearing size should be stamped on the backside of the bearings on a rebuild kit any good brand names I would leave the off the wall brands alone

A couple of years ago, I rebuilt my 302 with a "kit" from Adney Brown. If I remember correctly, it had rings, bearings, gaskets, oil pump, and timing chain. 140 bucks. Cool It won't really be a kit, tell him what you need and you'll get it.

wow all that for $140? thats fantastic. Do you have an email for him or is there a website I can visit for more info? The only brands I know are Clevite bearings but are there any others or are they simply the best?

Check with your machine shop to see what they normally carry for parts. Acl, clevite, federal mogal all make good bearings. I like silvolite pistons for stock builds, fel pro gaskets. When the shop grinds the crank they will tell you what undersize you will need.

Bearings are a little more expensive for a big block than a 302 however, Adney WILL get you what you need.
