350 rebuild

First off it depends on what you plan to do with your 350, exactly how exotic a parts you are going to need.
If you are going to rebuild stock or even with some minor goodies, like an intake, carb, headers, trick ignition, and a cam a couple steps up from stock, a stock replacement rebuild kit will get the job done and be serviceable for a long time or til you fry it again.

Before you go rebuilding though, I would check out the parts, and see if there are other repairs being needed, like regrinding the crankshaft, boring cylinders, a valve job, etc. Then go from there. your local parts house probably has a good rebuild kit for you./

Before you get a kit, you need to know if you are going to need oversized pistons and rings, undersized bearings etc.

Throwing new rings and bearings in an engine that may well need some serious machine work is not a good idea. It wont last long, and you will be right back where you are now.

Tear down your engine and take the parts to your friendly machine shop and let them look stuff over.
