    Ok, I’m in desperate need of help. The past year I’ve been slowly building a 350 for my 1982 c10. The 350 came out of an 87, so it has a 1 piece rear main, and I’m having trouble coming up with how to bolt the new 350 to my transmission. (Th-350c) My main issue is the fact That the 2pc rear...

    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...

    Hey all. So I have a 79 camaro, 350, HEI distributor. I just finished assembling the motor and wiring and when I'm trying to start it, it just keeps cranking and seems to spit puffs of gas out of the carb. To me it sounds like the cam and crank timing is out of whack and unfortunately I didn't...

    I own a 1974 chevy sbc 350 and a couple months ago my brother drove my truck home from work and said when he went to start it, a bunch of black smoke came out of the exhaust pipes and i could hear the knocking when he pulled up. knocking both in gear and at idle. He shut it off and started it...

    SO my sbc 350 is running very rough and choppy. I did a head gasket change and when i reassembled it, it sounds bad. checked the timing, the valve sequences, it idles for a little bit and sounds more like a lawn mower or a motorcycle than a chevy engine. the Carb backfires and ive seen flames a...

    Hi All, I'm building a 350 SBC and am looking at bolt on top end kits. I've seen that the Edelbrock 2022 and 2038 packages are supposed to be very good. My question is, why is the 2038 package cheaper than the 2022 when the 2038 package is supposed to make more power (338hp vs 315hp)? The...

    Long story short - I am thinking about buying a car and wondering about the engine build. It was owned by an old hot rodder and he has passed away, and his daughter who inherited the car is a good friend of my girlfriend. She doesn't know anything about the engine other than a plaque in the...

    Hey guys. I have a mild 350 sbc in my street rod. Really do not know the specs on the motor. But it is no street demon for sure, just a simple cruiser. I installed a 750 double pumper on it, basically because it looks really cool. It came with #74 jets. Had a hesitation when feathering the...

    I have 71 Chevy K10 (4x4) and with a 350 transmission and it runs tight seem to have a LOTS of power ...but I just want to be able to run it more loose I guess if you can call it that. What can I do so it won't run so tight ? The engine sounds like it's always at high RPMs when I'm on the...

    I have a newly built sbc350 with a 700r tans. Installed a Holley 750 double pumper. Probably too much carb but it seems to be working just fine for now. engine starts right up and idles great. The engine actually runs real smooth until about a 45-50 mph cruise. Then I sense a slight...
