    Are you sure it's not the 368 Cad engine? Any BOP bellhousing bolt pattern will bolt up to it. Putting a Chevy T350 behind it will require an adapter plate (cost about$75) or you can swap the output shaft of the 4x version into a BOP version T350. Arte you aware that 368's are a POS and leak from every possible place known.

    You honestly have had problems with a 368caddy motor? Are you speaking of the 4-6-8 motors or the ones that actually work, without the 4-6-8 junk? I have owned about 4 of those motors and they have been the most reliable engines I've owned. I would chose the olds 350 over those motors because of simplicity thou and caddy parts don't come cheap. 1BigK10, even though I feel those are decent motors, I wouldn't waste my time with them. They are extremly heavy compared to many other V-8s of that size. They put out a max of about 145 HP and 265 FT/lbs. If you wanted to get a caddy motor go with the 500. [​IMG] Also I have all kinda of parts for the caddy motors if you need anything, including 368 motor with 40K on it. Good luck, Mike
