    350 oiling system modifications

    I am beginning to build another 350. This time, since I have a well equipped machine shop in my garage, I am doing the block prep myself. I have a couple of questions. Most of the published advice says to open the main bearing feeds to 5/16" on numbers 2, 3 and 4. Does anybody know why not...

    Cheap 67/68 tilt steering column

    67/68 GM A-body tilt steering columns are not common. I have been looking for one for my 68 Skylark project for some time. Most of the after market suppliers make them but they are expensive and I am cheap. As I understand it, tilt was a luxury option and most folks who bought A-bodies...

    350 exhaust manifolds

    I am building a Buick Skylark 350 for street/parking lot use. I do not want to use long tube headers and can't find anyone who makes shortys. The original manifolds on my 1968 engine accept 2" down pipes. Do any of the later manifolds or those for a GS accept larger or am I going to be stuck...
