That don't look so good bro...

Am I also seeing a cracked cylinder wall?

I’m not sure yet. Most likely just a standard overhaul. But if budget allows. Maybe do some upgrades.

So she’s in the hands of the best machine shop on Long Island. I’ll report back when she’s back home.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

Maybe he could hook up the pedal as a shifter. Kinda like motorcycles. Shift with your left foot.

Decided to use the 351 for another project. Pulled out my 306 and decided to use that. Since I’m out of work. I gotta do things within a budget. So this gets the truck back on the road for the most reasonable cost.

Man... you aren't having any luck at all.

Is it just that one?

Was this thing running with a tune or factory programming?

Story time!
About a year ago. I was browsing on LETGO. I came across this engine. Guy said it was a 302. Didn’t know much about it. I offered him 100 for it. Came complete. With a fairly new jegs intake.

so since the 351 isn’t going to be done for a while. I figured I’d just use it and put the 351 in another project.

my engine builder came by to check the block out. He informed me it was a marine engine. And say some marks in a few of the cylinder walls. He pulled a piston. And found that. Blocks already punched 30 over. And it’s not the real desirable block. So best advice was to scrap it.
