An olds 350 pontiac 350 and buick 350 are as different as night and day. olds 350 rebuild kit would be useless for a pontiac 350 the only pieces you could use out of it would be the frost plugs. This concept alot of people find comfusing made worse buy the fact that in the late 70's gm started sharing the engines between divisions so for example you might buy a 79 pontiac t/a and have a olds 403 engine in it for example. Gm also made it confusing in that they had 4 engines with the 350ci displacement as well as 3 different 455's,400's and 3.8 v-6's.
