What's a reasonable price to pay for a set of vortec 906's? Found some locally, guy says they are fresh from machine shop. Dang, they are a lot more expensive than the early heads.

Good advice, thanks. I installed a Moroso 4 hole 1in carb spacer that I've had sitting around for a while. I felt a noticable difference in seat of the pants power. Especially mid range. Hopefully Wednesday I can make time to install the roller rockers.

OH! And I finally looked at my engine casting number.............14016379. From my research- 350 1977 - 79 2 or 4 bolt main bearings. Are there any other stampings that would tell me 2 or 4 bolt main?

I tried to get flash stall speed but it was damn hard by myself. I did record it and looked like 2200 but the tires were spinning. I'll try a few more runs tomorrow.
Drum brakes on the rear? Adjust the shoes out against the drum before leaning on the brake pedal.
