...for my '85 K30. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif I'm taking the truck to a shop on Thurs. to get the compression test done on it. It's popping and smoking out of the passenger side exhaust. My mechanic buddy says it could be the rings going bad. So, gonna wait til Thurs. and see what kind of numbers we pull out. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif Anybody know of decent priced crate engines, both 350 and 454? And also the 502? If all else goes wrong with the '85, I may try to get a new crate 350 and install it into the '82 K30 I got from Shawn. No, no big fancy high horsepower motor here. Just a cheap, good and reliable motor for a daily driver.
