    My engine is giving me major problems as of yesterday. We haven't had a chance to figure out what it is but my b/f thinks it is time to start building a 383 for my truck. I have been waiting for this so I want to jump on it while it is still fresh in his mind. Does anyone have a 4 bolt 350 main for cheap or ??? Needs to be rebuildable of course.

    What happened to the other post that was here? Guess you decided you didn't wanna give it away? hehe. No problem. Actually we would like one that is still put together so that we can number the rods etc. And b/f doesn't want one that has been bored already. Prefer one that we can have bored fresh.
    Useyourblinker: Thanks let me know what your friend has.

    Are you looking for a pre 86 block with the two piece rear seal? If so I might have one for you. I don't know if it is 4 bolt yet or not but it did come out of a truck so it should be but I can pull the pan and check.

    Yes I need a pre-86 block. For my 79 Jimmy. that would be great if you could check it out. Even better if it hasn't been rebuilt already. Let me know. What part of Cali are you in?

    Thanks.. Sara

    We have a 350, I think it is from an 84. But it is not a 4 bolt main. If you think you might want it let me know.

    Is it complete? i don't think my current one is 4 bolt. I believe it is just a 2. Do you know if it has been rebuilt before? How much do you want for it. I think you are close to me is that right?

    Hi Sara. I live in Fremont. I will remove the pan tomorrow and see if it is a 4 bolt or not. It is a complete short block and i do have the heads for it also. It has never been rebuilt before so it is still a standard bore. It does however have a bad thrust on the crank but you won't be using the crank anyway if you are building a 383 stroker.

    Thanks 4x4. How much do you want for it? After doing some research i don't think we'll be building a 383. I don't have the time or the amount of $$ to build one. I think we will just stick with a 350 and get a good cam etc. Shouldn't be too bad to rebuild a 350. I'm not sure how much a crank is, but i will look into it. In the meantime let me know how much you want.... and i would prefer a 4 bolt.

    Hi Sara. Would you be able to drive down and pick it up? If you're in Sac it should take you about an hour and 40 minutes or so to get here depending on where you are in Sac. As for price, how about you buy a pizza for us and it's yours. By the way, I might have another crank laying around also since you decided you cannot fund the stroker right now. If not, the crank that is in the engine could be fixed easily.

    Thank you! Yes we would be able to come pick it up. Buying a pizza for and driving for 3 hours is a lot better than going to picknpull to pull and purchase a pig in a poke! motor. Anyway... I see that you are a machinist :-) What would you charge to repair the crank? Are the heads good or do they need work done to them valves etc?
