Description: My Y84 SE Trans Am 403 motor (that was completely stock and original) had the timing chain set wore out. Decided it was time for a rebuild . A rebuilt set of #5 Olds heads, new Cloyes timing set ,new rod bearings and main bearings a new set of chrome rings. new water pump,new high output oil pump ,new fuel pump. I will add photos as we go along. I will keep the original #'s matching heads (in storage) if needed in the future.
