    A guy a know is gonna sell me his 350 out of an 88 blazer. Now the problem is it is a TBI but I was told that all I would have to do is some minor drilling he's selling it for 250$ It sounded good to me and the engine ran good when he took it out. Also its that serpintine belt style what will I have to do to fix it or should I change it to the serpintine belt. Questions,Comments,and Concerns yall.
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    if you plan on running it TBI you will need a harness. The motor itself should bolt right up in your truck though. For $250 I would buy it regardless. Just for the block, its all set up for rollers already. Make sure it hasnt been bored already then buy it and rebuild it.

    it is a post '86 motor, so it's not the uber-common 350. Not that big of a deal...

    Is there a spot for the mechanical fuel pump? or are you using an electric?

    Some later blocks have no provision for a mechanical fuel pump.
