The 350 in the truck has a serious water leak going on. The exhaust port on cylinder 7 was spraying water like a lawn sprinkler. I'm debating on if I should get that engine rebuilt, or throw in the 305 from the donor truck (which seems to only need valve stem seals replaced) and call it a day. decisions, decisions.
Thanks for the comps, but the real credit goes to the guys on this board! They keep me motivated to turn out a truck that is worthy of this forum.....alot of help from guys ill never meet have been patient with all my dumb questions i am truly amazed at the talent and skill level of guys that hang out here

JMHO, but i would go the easy button. Youll have enough challenges through the rest of the build. Put the 305 in it and at a later time build or buy a engine you want. These crate motors are unbelievably cheap, and a warranty

Good look with you build, mine is stuck in electronics prison
Semper Fi...Uncle Sam, you da man

All parts offered to help are free, unless otherwise noted

Dont try this stuff in my build thread, unless you have 55 years of mechanical OTJ training

AS usual, off topic

They say your mind goes second, can't remember the first
