    Looking to build a motor for my 74' Blazer.
    Does anyone know of a good place to purchace a rebuilt lower end of a 350 in the Portland, OR. area? Looking for a block with only the crank, pistons, rods and bearings assembled. Oh and cheap too.
    Second i was wondering if anyone had specs/prints on the stock cylinder heads. I want to machine the heads and recondition them myself, valve guides, seats, ports,ect. Or even one step further, a program (with tooling desc.) for a CNC mill to machine new oversized valve seats and porting.
    Finally anyone know how much material can be removed in the ports before major problems arise.
    Yeah I know this is a lot. Is there any book or reference other than experience that could help me out here.

    Any help is helpful

    Well, for a cheap deal on a short block look at schucks. I think they are around $600-800. With a fair warranty.
