Re: Rebuilt motor. Right here, right now!
The gouge in cylinder 7 wasn't even 10 thousandths deep, so no problem going 30 over.
It is in the truck, and I'm going to try to get completely done tonight and get her fired up tomorrow right after work, granted that my oil cooler line fittings come in!
The old engine had 191,000 on it, and from the looks of things had never been out or even had so much as the intake off.
I tore the engine down & rebuild it myself with the help of 2 friends, one with at least 40 years engine building experience, so that helped. But all in all, it was pretty straight forward. You can't really beat the simplicity of a 350.
I'll let you guys know when it's running and how awesome it sounds with open headers! (until I can get it to the exhaust shop)
