A couple of points # 1 the Chevy not having a cam plate is a non issue the flat tappet cams have tapered lobes that push the cam towards the back of the engine so the cam does not walk forward that is incorrect # 2 Chevy pick ups should be welded on #3 the ford timing cover uses dowl pins on most engines however some early 302's did not and the balancer should be used to install cover to center up the seal. the 302 and 351W has horrible heads,  Tiny valves and extremely restrictive ports the GT40 heads are a so so upgrade every one thinks they are these amazing performance heads but they are not they only seem to be because most of the 302/351 heads suck so bad even a so so head makes great improvement, Fords need aftermarket heads to really make good power. For the most part there both decant engines you get allot more bang for your buck with a Chevy Ford has a better valve arrangement I have built thousands of engines in the last 27 years being in the automotive machine shop Business and over all the are pretty much the same people who jump on one side or the other are Armatures Plain and simple in fact that is how those of us in the industry can easily spot a novice they are the ones getting all worked up about how one is the best and the other sucks your words give you away

Good video I have been using the tapered sleeve compressors for years I do have a slight disagreement with one point the amount of oil on the cylinder bore can be an issue a large amount of oil on the bore can glaze the cylinder walls at start up This information comes direct from Total Seal in fact they recommend WD40 on the rings not oil for assembly oil is also ok but they say you should not have even one drop of oil fall on your drip tray thanks for the great video

Olds has a 260 CID V8 that is 4.3L but they never called it a 4.3 because it was made back in the day when engine size was denoted in cubic inches so when you say 4.3 L most people assume you mean the 4.3L V6 Chevrolet engine which is also the first Vortec engine Chevy produced and is still very popular the 260 olds engine was a complete terd and no one really calls it a 4.3
