Does anyone know what years the dipstick was on the passenger side?

And, I forgot to mention my motor is carbureted not fuel injection.

Now dont get me wrong you can build a nice little motor with hydraulic cams I dont use them personally but go for what you can just with a built engine im was thinking solid lift solid roller but no that not for every body just lifters and cam ran little over 700 for me. I have no problem. Run what you can better than a 4 cylinder Honda any day in my book but like cobalt saying alot of failures some from the cam some from people not doing proper break in

But yea main reason I dont put built and hydraulic together is when people I know say built engine they are talking some crazy lift high horsepower high rpm engine and a hydraulic is not going do that because of vavle float with the lifters and limted lift. you will see solid roller or hydraulic roller in most built race engines I run a 645 lift solid roller with 1.6 rockers to put my lift bout 680 now. but like say they are alot nice engines out there with hydraulic for street see no problem. at track thats another thing but I run mine on both street and track but I would not recommend that for most people alot of people are not going like it and yes its not cheap I have little over 12000 in motor and know a few with more money than that

Can solids make more power? Sure can. But that's not the question.

To exclude an engine from being "built" only because it has hydraulic lifters excludes SBC engines in the 600 HP range. BBC engines can make even more power using hydraulic lifters. Speaking for myself here, a 600-plus HP engine- to me- IS built, period.

Bumping this up, I bought this Lunati 300 cam for my truck
Lunati Bracket Master II Cam and Lifter Kits 10120412LK - SummitRacing.com

According to the summit guys it goes well with everything else on my truck, but I'm wondering based on the specs should it have a fairly nasty,choppy idle? It has 108 LSA.

A 350 sbc using 246 duration @ 0.050" lift on a 108 LSA? Naw, smooth as glass. If you threw the glass off a water tower.

haha, good so it should sound pretty nasty then. Thanks I was a bit concerned when the lunati site said "fair idle" but i guess it depends on what you call "fair" and what motor it's going in.
