Re: Mystery Motor SBC?

Might be a collectors item or rare special block making it worth an additional $50 Any Target Masters have these type of numbers. :-k

Mystery Motor SBC?

The block has the numbers 397004. Should be another number behind the 4. #3970014 and 3970010 are common. Never seen a 6 digit like this. 99 % sure it is a 350-also has 2 bolt mains 2 piece seal. Whats up with this :shock:

I know its not number matching but Summit sells a 350-4 bolt main block 40 over for $739.00 Remanufactured. But how bad would the shipping be?

Re: Oil Smoke driving me crazy

Does the oil smell like gas? Carb float stick? Might be something simple.

Re: KB Claimer pistons

Just follow the manufactures instructions about min ring gaps. I use 27-28 top for 125 HP nitrous. Most people bash there pistons because they never read the instructions on ring gap. Good product for the price and quality IMO.

Will need a 4 flew alum. rad and a cowl hood. Started off gpnna do a 305 and try for 20 mpg. But the 305 is wo...

V8 S10 Engine Ex Manifolds?

Any one know which exhaust manifolds that will fit the best in a V8 s10 using stock steering column with the stock shifter too #-o Or cheap headers if I must. Not a race car-daily driver.
