Post Starting a new 350 build

Post pics of your 350 builds. Tore mine down tonight sending it off to machine shop over the weekend. Will post some more pics if anyone is interested. Btw casting numbers show it came out of a 80-85 Car or Truck. Im just using the block pretty much and replacing the parts with some older parts I have, no idea what its going into yet.

Re: Starting a new 350 build

Yikes! Was the full weight of that engine sitting on the balancer and the flexplate? I've seen crank snouts snap off from doing that.
