Just dropped off my first disassembled 340 at the machine shop. Ill be swapping out the 300 thats currently in my 66 Skylark. Originally I was going to go with a 401 motor and tranny combo that came out of what I was told was a 66 Riviera. However the mods to make it work were a lil more that my budget allows for at the moment, so the nailhead just sits in the corner waiting its turn.
Im trying to figure our hat aftermarket SBC parts will work. stuff like HEI distributers, Holley carbs, different trannys ( the 2 speeds gotta go ) etc... If any one has ever done a 340 rebuild or a 401 swap into a Skylark, I'd love some feedback
