03-16-2014 02:30 AM finally got the engine home
got it on the stand. and taking it apart to have a look see.

its a 3970010 4 bolt block with the standard 4" bores. and has a ridge on top.

the heads are 462624 with 1.94/ 1.5 valves. I'm sure they're junk and won't be using them anyway.

the old timing chain is a link belt and had over 2" of play.

pistons are stock dished with 4 valve reliefs.

cam moved freely but the lifters are stuck in the bores and wont come completely out. sprayed them with wd 40 and will check them in a couple of days. I got the cam out. it has 1 bad lobe.

I can't get the crank to move, so I got it and the pistons, cylinders soaking with wd40.

still got to get the oil pump, crank, pistons, rods, and freeze plugs out. get the block cleaned up, measure deck height and get it to the machine shop.

02-15-2014 06:14 AM 355 build for my DD 89' chevy 2wd c1500
engine in the truck now is a stock 305 TBI with 318k miles on it. I drive it everyday and have been for the last 10yrs and 140k miles.

parts I have to start with:

complete 010 350 engine. standard bore. never been decked. smog heads with 1.72 INT valves.

stock 882 heads, 1.94/1.5 valves. 171 int./65 exht. runners have not been hogged out (ported to death), only milled to 75cc.

scorpion 1.5 full roller rockers with locks

plans are:

get the engine apart. take the block, crank, rods, 882's to machine shop.

if block checks out good: align hone/bore, bore cylinders .030 over & honed, take .005 off the deck. cam bearings installed

if crank is reusable: have .010 taken off main & rods.

if 882's are reusable: have them milled down to 74cc. clean up the ports & chambers, polish the chambers

if stock 5.7 rods are good: have pistons installed. .030 over, 6cc 4vr flat tops, with 1.56 ch. should give me 9.2:1 CR w/ .020 head gasket compressed thickness, and.040 quench area.

parts I will be installing:

cam: comps k-kit, high energy/marine 268h. 218/218 @.050, .454/.454 lift w/ 1.5 rockers, 110 lsa, installed @ 106 ICL. should be able to run 87 octane gas just fine.

exhaust: true duals. hooker headers with 31" long tubes & 1 5/8" primaries. 2 1/2" tubing into thrush round tube glass packs, exit 6" behind the bumper.

carb: holley 8007 390cfm 4 brl.

intake manifold: edelbrock performer RPM non air gap.

ignition: stock HEI w/ vacuum advance

belt: serp set up and all accessories. on truck now.

transmission : 700r4 w/2000 stall, lock up converter, large rv type cooler. in the truck now.

gear: 3.90:1. has a 3.42:1 now.

rearend: gm 8.5", 10 bolt, posi limited slip. in truck now.

tires: 275/60/15 (28&quot bf goodrich gt radials. has 235/75/15 (29&quot goodyear wranglers on now.

not too bad for a good DD, work truck, that'll never see 5000rpm, pull good down low, run on 87 octane, have a nice cruise speed 45-75 mph 1500-2500 rpm, 275hp around 4700rpm , and 325 lbs of trq around 3200rpm, sound good at idle and cruisin.
