some people cut to many corners and buy poor quality parts.
I think hot rodding and do it yourself is more effective when time and effort are spent on quality care of assembly.Those "free" horse power are hard to comeby but its your time.
Lots of quality and inexpensive factory parts can be reused to make a strong 307. the 307 is just a stroker 283,,, for horse power you have more potential than using a 305 because of the bore.
for a daily driver truck I might choose the 305 over the 307...

Thanks guys. I'm checking it out now. I just learned how to use the dang camera...now I have to learn how to fix the pics I took. Ahhhhh...can you even buy film anymore? LOL. I'll play around with this program a bit and see if I cant post a couple of pics of my truck on here. It's nothing spectacular, but its mine!

50MB to 75 MB JPG file size and 640x480 resolution is plenty big.

The raw file size and picture resolution that your digital camera produces is way too big for internet posting.

Snakebit68, I agree with F-Bird'88 on Irfanview. I use it constantly for photo editing. It's a free program and it works GREAT.

I have a couple of Irfanview instructional PDF files that I made up for the Yahoo Group "Sharpfans". I also have them posted at Keepandshare.com, you can view and download from there, or I can email them to anybody who would like to have them.

The first file, Irfanview - Getting Started, shows how to use Irfanview to resize your photos and several other options like adding text captions to your photos and cropping your photos.

The second file, Irfanview - Panoramas and Screenshots, shows how to make a panorama (merge multiple photos into 1 big photo) and how to do screenshots of your computer monitor using Irfanview.

Hope this will help get you "up to speed" on working with your photos. It's really pretty easy once you've done it a few times.

Not very impressive or dismaying when you spent $10,000 to do it.
To each his own..

F-BIRD'88 The fact that the common replacement "rebuilder" pistons have a reduced compression height
that drops the compression ratio even further can be a big plus if/when building a low compression ratio engine (7.5:1) to supercharge.
Use these pistons and a large chamber 76cc 350 cylinder head on your 307. The cr is a just right low 7.5:1
Now supercharge it with a Weiand 142 blower at 8PSI to 10psi boost and hang on ....!
(2.10:1 to 2.33:1 blower drive ratio)

Use the better smogger 76 cc chevy head like a 441,-487, 920, etc and home port them for more flow. (1.94x 1.60 valves and generous home porting) {avoid all the 307 heads, all 882's and 462624 heads}
Use a moderate blower friendly cam in it. EG Crane HMV278-2.

The low compression ratio allows you to use agressive 10PSI boost on pump gas for lots of power.
That lowly 307 is now a 400+++ hp 350 killer. You will slay your fair share of Camaros with that truck
with a lil blown 307.
The pistons are cheap and available in various bore oversizes..
Do not use the stock 307 heads. (small valves/small ports) Find the 76cc 350 heads and improve them.
Thats what you do to a 307 for your truck. The pain you inflict by blowing off the competitors with their 350'a snd 383's is doubly delicious when done with a tHrEe- -OOOH--sEvEn !

lg1969 The only thing worth keeping is the Crank and connecting Rods. The rest of the 307 is trash.
