Post Re : Drivtrain Choices

RE : the 350 SBC & Turbo-Hydro 350 trans is a hard combination to beat because it is cheap & plentiful and as long as you do a compression test , before purchase to insure to bad cylinders , you can tinker it a little bit then plop it right in and begin driving & having fun , if you're smart you can do many basic mods as you go along and vastly increase the driveability as well as fuel economy , using inexpen$ive locally sourced parts....

For starters , always re seal any used engine 7 slushbox tranny *before* you install it and in the case of V-8's , always , ALWAYS replace the cam chain and gears as this affects the cam timing , very few after a few years of use are anywhere near spec. and nothing else you do will make it right with the dang cam 2 degrees retarded from a floppy old cam chain.....

You were going to replace the water pump and timing cover seal anyway , right ? .

Later on you can add big valve heads from a junked later model car cheaply , etc. etc........

If you want to make it all chromed out , that's easy & cheap to do later as you're driving and enjoying the rig .

Yeah , yeah , I AM a InLiner guy but being a Jouneyman Mechanic , it's most important to me to have a good runner and making a tire burning beast On The Cheap is dead simple .

We understand Dano, thats why we will come and visit you at your home.
After a few visits you will beg us not to come back and promise to make at least one meet. LOL

Dano whatever you need make sure you let us know how we can help.
