why is it theres more idea bashing than help anymore, is it know one likes any ideas but theres, i was always told hot rodding is to be different and do the odd stuff, hell i was only building an engine for my wife's lil GMC Caballaro,
for her to run around in and every one wants to build a monster for an every day driver, and no one wants to believe a lil 283 can pull the wheels on a 1956 chevy, hell back in the day we only had 283 to use and they were hell of a good engine!! my thought is hell lot better than any 305 ever made!!, I'd rather have a 307 than any 305 ! and yes chevy made a 307 long before Old's ever did!, all was doing was putting a 262 crank in a 350 block using 302
pistons an works out to be a 315 cub. in., every 305 i every had i've broke the skirts off number 8 piston, i feel the piston to small to clear the crank bobs, out off 10 305 only one never broke number 8 piston and is was already weak so thinking was just to guttless to blow up!!!
