Well I got under the hood again, Drivers side #7 cylinder, some plug fouling.
Engine seems to be going through a qt of oil every 1.5 to 2 tanks of gas. Im leaning toward piston oil ring and a poor cyl hone job or somthin in that cylinder. The guy at the machine shop who origionaly set this motor probably screwed me on the rebuild. The block Seem like she never realy was right from the get go. I herd that he ended up at the Co Jail soon afterward. Somthin to do with tweakin !
Anyways I currently have a 3970010 350 4-bolt main block at a local reputable machine shop. Shes sitting there 20 over and some rust in 2 cylinders. Hopfully it will bore out 30+ ok. However whoever built it up before used a screwed in the crank as a key. Bone-head !!
So Im leanin toward strokin-er !
Reusing my Edelbrock 70cc 2.02/1.60 heads. A Edelbrock RPM intake. My Rochester

Any suggestions out there on a reasonably priced crank kit, and Hydraulic Lifter camshaft.
