Re: \"issues\" - Compression Check Done -Results
since you asked me , Ill tell you what I would do, in fact what I actually did Do when my 304 crapped out.
I pulled it out, saved the crank, the rods, and the tin ware ( valve covers, oil pan, distributer, oops I actually sold that to CJdave.)
then I took the rest to the local scrap yard, and got $7.89 for it, then I dropped in the 360 I had rebuilt a year before.
I would not drop ONE cent on a 304, unless you absolutely CANNOT find a 360, the rebuild kits for a 304 ( and you are going to at the very least need a complete rebuild) are more than rebuild kits for a 360.
just find a 360 core, or running engine, and start there, it might be couple of $$ more now, but way better spent money in the long run.
this all of course assumes you are happy with the rest of your drivetrain.
if you dont likethte auto and Qtrack, then maybe its time to think chevy or Ford, or V6 or deisel engine swap, but from reading your posts and trying to help with your questions I really dont think your equipped for that type of swap.
probably better off to buy a crate 360 and drop it in, even pay a buddy to help if you need it.
