283 Turbo Fire Small Block

Here are some of the various versions of engines Bel has seen over the years.

The old 265 could blow smoke rings out of the oil filler tube, so out she came and in went the 283 a few modifications. A low budget early 70's hot rod using factory Z28 parts.

With new air conditioning and some dress up items, she started to look better and sufficed for a while.

When one of the wrist pins came loose and did a little machining work on the cylinder wall, we now had another "new & improve" updated version with a holley atop an Eldelbrock performer.
