Re: How you built your 350, what worked, what didn't...
I had to rebuild mine back in 92 because I'd bent the crank and three rods, but the machinist said the crank, bores, and deck were all square. He said I could have gotten a new crank and rods, re-ringed the pistons, and put it back together. Lesson: Find out what the machinist has to say before you buy anything.
