Well, the front-end is finally mocked up... the short block is assembled, parts are in (they have arrived) for the "882" cyl heads that are going on the 1974 350 4-bolt S.B.C. all new valves, springs, keepers... everything... short block is totally assembled... intake manifold...

Purchased a 1993 Chevy 1 ton Pick-up that I'm thinking of robbing for its complete fuel injection set-up for use on the 350 at some point, the trans is bad in the truck (no reverse) and the brakes are shot, the body is rotted out and the rear end makes noise... Gave 150.00 for the complete truck and drove it home... I'm thinking its gonna make a great donor for the 350... now I just have to figure out what to do with the carcass when im done with it...

more info to come as soon as i get it... but tonight is gonna be a long one.. I dont plan on going to bed till the heads are completely assembled and bolted on... maybe tomorrow I can set the motor and trans in and maybe start it??? I dont know... but I'm definately going to give it the old college try...

Way to go... Full steam ahead. Scrap metal is pretty high, you would surely get you $150 plus back after taking off any and all that is salvageable from that truck. thumbsup image
