    350 build

    I posted a similar thread a few months ago about a 454 build but I may have found another project to put that in, but either way, I was looking for some suggestions on how to get decent power out of my 350.

    Rapid Clicking from Carb During Idle

    Hi everyone, First thread here happy to be apart of the community! First question, I had a bunch of ruined wires coming from my wiring harness that I re-spliced and reconnected (my gauge fuse kept blowing out due to a short). After I did that and fired up my engine, a bunch of blue smoke...

    Confused with my cylinder heads

    So yesterday I pulled out my sportsman II heads that have been stashed away for 8 yrs. They were on my 406 circle track engine and I'm hoping to get them ready to go on the 406 I'm building for the Monte. So I had one on the bench looking it over and notice NO steam holes and I'm thinking WTF...
