CarTech (SA55): “Chevrolet Small-Block Parts Interchange Manual” Revised Edition

Brought to you by CarTech and written by Ed Staffel, the revised version of Chevrolet Small-Block Parts Interchange Manual (SA55) is the end-all resource about parts interchangeability for the small-block Chevy. Casting and serial number identification guides help you through the myriad parts available in salvage yards, at swap meets, and on the Internet, while other sections teach you which parts to combine to create various displacements, which match well with others, and when factory parts are best.

Staffel covers cranks, rods, pistons, cylinder heads, intake manifolds, exhaust manifolds, ignitions, carburetors, and more. This revised edition updates a book that’s been an invaluable resource for more than six decades. Whether you’re building a Chevy small-block salvage-yard stroker engine, looking to make a numbers-matching engine, saving money on repurposing factory parts, or simply want to know which parts work together, this book is an easy addition to your library.

Cloyes: Timing Chain Water Pump Kits Now Available

Cloyes has added timing chain water pump kits to its growing timing system lineup, starting with two applications for GM Ecotec, covering nearly 4 million vehicles currently operating across North America:

  • 9-4201SWP: for GM Ecotec 2L
  • 9-4201SAWP: for GM Ecotec 2.4L

Similar to timing belt water pump kits, which have been successful in the aftermarket, timing chain water pump kits are necessary as the shift to OE chain-driven timing drives increases. Failing more frequently than timing chains, timing chain–driven water pumps should always be replaced at the same time as the timing chain to reduce warranties, customer comebacks, and preserve long-term system performance. Cloyes is actively developing other kits and will release them as they are complete.
