I lost the 305 in my 1983 today. I lost oil pressure and it started knocking horribly so I pulled over and pulled the dipstick.....little shards of metal all over it. I limped to a friends house and there she sits, at 208,342.6 miles. I'll be buying a new 350 in the next few days. Where can I get a good deal on one? I hear that some of the Hot Rod mags have advertisements for 350 crate engines at a good price. I want a brand new one though, just so I can drop her in the hole and forget about her for a while. Any ideas on where to get a good deal on a 350? I'm scared to call the local Chevy dealer, I might have to though. Thanks.
