engine coming out
#1
Well I'm pulling the engine this weekend to drop off at the machine shop.
The owner has done alot of work for friends so I know he will give me good advise on how to rebuild. Then I will know whats under the hood. When I get it back, what color do most paint the block, intake and other bolt on parts. It came with chrome v/covers and open chrome air filter. Not looking for WoW but want more then stock.

It's too bad about your engine
but once you get it rebuilt you won't have to worry about it again. When I did mine I put a performer intake,slightly bigger cam, headers,600cfm carb. Made a big difference (351 2v) MB

When you go through the engine do yourself a favor and degree the cam whether you re-use the existing one or replace it. When we went through mine we found the aftermarket RV cam the PO installed was WAY advanced with the new timing set. We installed the cam +2* and it degreed @ +11* - as a result we had to retard the cam 6* to get the +4* we were looking for.

thanks now if I could get it to run perfectly it would be nice hahaha {engine is not the problem. The guys who built it did a great job. It's my ignition system giving me headaches but I'm getting there}
