I’m going to look at the '85 sedan that I recently posted the ad for.
He makes it sound like it’s God’s Gift to Women
I’ll pull the engine trans for my '75 sedan.
I always thought I wanted a carbed engine but maybe not?
I’m thinking this has TPI. This seems pretty high tech to me.
I think these engines are easily identified by the rectangle casting located
between the heads with the main air inlet aiming forward towards the fan.
I know some of what I call ‘newer’ engines have 4 hold down bolts running in a line
along the valve cover - is this some tell-tail engine ID?
I’ve read over the years that Chevy had some issues with their
ignition sender shorting out from rain water - I think it is down by the crankshaft pulley?
Is this all years?
I believe this is the only fuel injection system I want to mess with. Is it reliable / easy to get parts for?
I want a 700r4 trans behind whatever engine I end up with. So this car has to have that, the owner doesn’t know.
I have a printed out page of the different trans pan shapes so I’ll just take a look.
Is there an easy (casting numbers on the block) to make sure this is a 350 and not a 305?
And I’d like something that runs on regular gas- ya, really, I’m no hot rodder.
He said it wouldn’t pass smog in CA, so maybe the engine is earlier than '85.
I do know what a tbi system looks like and am not interested in them.
And the cross fire setup looks like staggered 4 barrel carbs?
I’d like to hear any and all thoughts and experience you have to offer.
thanks, I’m to see this thing at 10 am tomorrow = 70 mile drive
thanks, I’ve got cash but this guy is going to have to be hungry
I’m in no hurry but this might be the engine for me.
So stop reading all the want ads I’ve posted and lets TALK lumps.
'maybe this pic ‘attaches’ to this post - it’s what I think TPI looks like
