350 rebuild advice
At age 50 I'm building my first project, putting a 350 in a 52 chevy (car). It's not for show or racing, just something fun to drive to work, so I'm not sub-framing, and want to keep it as simple as possible.
I bought a complete 350 out of a 94 chevy pickup, and I've just torn it down. The crank is bad, but otherwise looks OK. I'm having the block boiled and cam bearings replaced, and having a valve job done on the Vortec heads, and looking for advice on what else I should consider for a low budget, pump gas engine that I will drive every day. After reading 'til I'm blind, I'm leaning toward just buying a crank kit and a matched Edelbrock cam/intake/carb set, and going stock with everything else. Any suggestions?
Also, I need some guidance on what I'll run into with the drive line. I've got a junk 82 Camaro with a good 350 turbo trans. The 52 has an enclosed drive shaft, and I wonder if I can just have a driveshaft built and hook it up as is. Anybody done one of these before?
Thanks for the input.
