Reason being the engine has 306,000 miles on it and I started noticing that I am losing power and it doesn't seem to have the get up and go that it used to.

    2 weeks ago, we finally made room in the garage and brought home her 1966 c10 longbox fleetside. Her dad gave it to her several years ago one day when the family was talking about all the old trucks he has sitting around. This one though, has parked in a barn since he bought it in the early...

    Hey all, I've recently gotten an Electric Life 8900 to replace the old kit (exact same) in my car. I got the car after it being abandoned for 5+yrs and the poppers didn't work from the start.

  11. Hotrodding Basics
    Hi All, :welcome: Quick question: when I put the transmission into drive and take my foot off the brake pedal, the truck never moves forward under its own power. It takes a bit of pressing the accelerator pedal to get it going, but I assume that's just because it is a big heavy vehicle. Is...

    Hi: I am a 67 Chevelle owner and have a non stock Chevy SB motor. Can anyone decipher the code found on the passenger side front of the block? The code is K0806CKR. I think it's a 350. There is also a code 722100581 above the first code. Thanks so much.

    Just got an '86 Camaro with a 350 swap, and didn't find out much about the engine before I received it. Was able to determine that the engine is a '71 350 out of an El Camino of that year. It has a 600cfm 1405 Edelbrock 4-barrel carb and Weiand X-Celerator intake manifold on it, that I can see...

    I just purchased my first car ever, and made it one that's been a dream car since I was a kid. I bought a 1989 Caprice 9c1 with the 350 TBI engine. I don't have very much knowledge about this thing or how the TBI works, but my plan is to slowly build it out to be a fun cruiser (and burnout...

    I recently bought a 29 ford model a coupe hot rod. It was said to have a chevy/gm small block 350 in it. Looks like a 350; I was going to verify with the casting numbers but they have been ground off the block for some reason I just cannot fathom. I'd really like to identify what year range...

    Newly built chevy 350 crank ground 10/10 under, solid flat tappet cam (if this has any effect on oil pressure) at idle (700-900 rpm) about 5-7 psi, cruising at 60 (2400 rpm) approximately 35-45 psi. Cold start 55 psi with 10w30 conventional oil. Cruising pressure doesn't bother me but the idle...

    Hello, So I have a stock pre 86' sbc 350 in my 1975 F150 I picked up a few weeks ago. It's got a bent valve and a wicked exhaust leak. So I was going to put new heads and headers on the motor, and figured while I was at it that I might as well put a new cam in. I'm pretty stuck on the heads I...
