Anyway, I'm glad I didn't start tearing it apart yet.
Those kind of brain farts feel pretty good, don't they?

Cape Cod Bob I was a little dissappointed when I saw white smoke coming out of the drivers side tail pipe ! Thought all kinds of bad stuff. Then , while putting on some exhaust tips I found lots of moisture in the drivers side tailpipe !
What could it be? Head gasket, intake gasket, cracked block etc., etc. So, I did a compression test after the motor had sat for 3 days.
Plugs were dry !

Cape Cod Bob Great news, I got that motor installed and after changeing the wireing for HEI I got it fired up. Got 60lbs. of oil pressure at 1100 rpms neutral idle.
Drove it out of the garage and after fiddlin' with it for awhile I backed her back in under her own power after 55 years of sitting !

I can't wait to get it finished.

In the begining PART 2 LOL

If you read my thread "In the begining" , you will know that I broke that motor.
I have now gotten ahold of another 350 TBI . This one has already been carbed with a Edelbrock on a edelbrock performer intake. And was in a truck and I heard it run. $300 and the kid I got it from removed it and delivered to me. I think I did OK.
Now just a little clean up, change a few things and I'll be movin' again
I can't upload my pic so this is the motor before it came out of the truck.

Got it uploaded by resizing,
