Ok, well since this engine has to come out, im contemplating going ahead and making a 383 stroker. But to get this old block to that stage i can just about buy a new block and kit from PAW. Now here are my questions 1.)In the paw book they have a regular 350 4 bolt w/ 1 piece rear main seal. I know that will go in, but its not the 383 that i am kinda getting the itch for. I know this would probably have the least hassles and all but would this be better options than the ones below if they are even possible. 2.)They have a 377 kit that you can order bored out a bit more and made a 383 so thats what i would do, HOWEVER the problem is, is that its got the 2 piece rear main seal like the older engines. Would this engine have all of the knock sensor hookups and other hookups that my engine has now so it would be computer compatible? Since this is the pre-85 style im not sure. 3.)Finally as the pull of this old engine is there any tricks to it? Any little thing we might forget to disc that could screw it all up? Since its computer controlled i know it has alot more wires to possibly screw up and all but any other minor line thats forgotten many times? 4.)Should i just forget all new parts and rebuild the probably 2 bolt main i have for a few dollars less and just keep that one? Thanks all i know its alot of opinion in these questions but i value y'alls opinions as they always seem to be right. Also, im not planning on pulling the tranny with the engine is that a better plan than taking it out too?
