Chevy 350

Parent Category: Chevrolet
This category covers questions about the Chevrolet small-block engine variant 350. The 350 first appeared as a high-performance 295 hp L-48 option for the 1967 Chevrolet Camaro.
This is for fuel injected: Removal & Installation Disconnect the negativebattery cable. Relieve fuel systempressure. Disconnect the ignitioncoil. Remove the upper intakemanifold. Disconnect the vacuumline to the regulator. Remove the snap ringfrom the regulator housing. Place a towel...
Assuming this is a truck, if it has a standard transmission, TDC. If it has a automatic transmission, 4 degrees BTDC.
line the timing mark from the crankshaft sprocket up with the camshaft sprocket and tada!
yes, but you'll need to have the main journals turned down first.
Google search VIN decoders. I can't remember which digit it is either 3,5, or 8 but one of them is the power plant that the vehicle came with stock. If you have a Chiltons or Haynes manual for your vehicle, they typically have a VIN decoder in the front them.
A high performance engine will run better in the cold the vehicle is at full operating temperature. Cold air is more dense so basically its like your packing in more air into the cylinder.
The most common engine used was the 5.7L 350 V-8. But it may have the 6 cylinder in it. Count the spark plugs.
Depending on year.. as low as 145hp in the L65 in the mid 70's 295hp "gross" in the first in 1967 370hp "gross" in the original 1970 lt-1 405hp 1993 ZR-1 350 was the highest production 350 at 405hp
Have you checked the computer codes? If the computer is not giving you a fault code you probably don't have an electronic problem. When an engine dies and there is no fault code it's usually related to fuel pressure.
If 1% of the bolts are defective, then the probability is that close to 2 bolts will be defective if there are 175 bolts. The actual probability is that 1.75 bolts will be defective, but you can not have 3/4 of a bolt. However you know there are going to be runs when you have no errors and runs when...
Rocker arm nuts are not torqued on a small block Chevy. If it's a hydraulic cam, set the nut for zero backlash on the base circle and preload the lifter 1/4-3/4 turns. If it's a solid-lifter cam, use feeler gages to set the backlash per manufacturer's specifications.
Bore = 4.00 inches Stroke = 3.48 inches Measure cylinder bore with heads off, measure crank main center-line to rod main center-line then multiply by 2 to get stroke. Stock Chevy 350 is as above.
read casting numbers and research on the web. Just Google small block Chevy heads castine numbers. These numbers are under the valve covers so you will have to take one off.
The firing order is 1-8-7-2-6-5-4-3 Cylinder #s or drivers side head front to rear is 1-3-5-7 The other head front to rear is 2-4-6-8
I have a 1994 Chevy pick up short bed. and i have about 240 stock. i have put a cold air intake on it which is an extra 30 horsepower. I also put headers on which imporved it aswell. I have flowmaster exhaust and i have about 310 horsepower.
I've seen aftermarket pistons available in .060" oversize. Probably wouldn't want to try to go any bigger than that.
Depending on the year, either behind the distributor, or, above the oil filter.
Answer . Go to a local machine shop that does engine work. They will explain the procedure for boring an engine in detail. This is where you will have to go to get your engine bored.
Viewed from the top looking down on the engine with the center of the cap being 12 o'clock coincident with the centerline of the engine, number 1 is at the 11 o'clock position.
there are 2 or 3 flathead screws on the front of the carb turn those til it idles right those control the flow of fuel so if its flodding its flowing to fast turn them til it stops doing it
8-degrees BTDC. Before top dead center. Stright out of the book.
As long as the 350 is a fuel injected engine / TBI / Throttle Body Injection engine there is NO difference.
TDC is 0 degrees TDC, not 10 degrees BTDC which is before top dead center. ATDC is after top dead center. Both of these in relation to piston height are "below top dead center".
Start by finding #1 TDC. Pull the #1 plug and hold your finger over the hole while bumping the engine. When you feel compression coming out of the hole you are approaching TDC. Bring the balancer around to line up TDC and pull the cap off. The tower that most closely lines up with the rotor is ...
Yes there is. It is bolted in the passenger side of the timing cover behind the harmonic balancer / bottom pulley on the front of the engine.
Hi John, You need to find the number 1 cylinder. It is the front left spark plug when setting in the drivers seat. Take the number 1 spark plug out and turn the engine over by hand with a screw driver in the number 1 spark plug hole to find top dead center on compression stroke. You will have top...
Without getting too heady, it is the same principal as the old 7/4 swap cams. Old firing order 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2, replaced with 1-8-7-2-6-5-4-3 is attempting to keep the previous cylinders exhaust pulse from interfering with the next cylinders exhaust pulse. What used to happen is that #7 would fire...
No way, not even close. Chevy REDESIGNED the engine blocks and the transmissions in late 1999. Nothing will interchange under 1999.
Answer . \nMan, depends on the car and whether it's electronic ignition with coil-packs or distributer.\n. \nIn your manual, find out where the #1 cylinder is... Take out that sparkplug. Stick your finger (or the tip of a screwdriver) in the hole and turn the engine by hand. When you feel the...
I recently replaced the heater core in my 1985 Chev C-30 Silverado 1 Ton Pickup with air conditioning. First I had remove any of the parts that are connected to the basic plenum inside the cab(where the core is installed). I then had to remove the passenger side fender well (Not as difficult as it...
I dont know :D. I dont know :D
\n Turbo \n. \nUnbolt the bell housing and pull clutch, pressure plate and flywheel. Will need to remove input bushing from crank or T conv wont fit into crank. \nReplace with a flex plate \nInstall torqe converter in trans being sure to turn convertor into pump. bolt up auto trans. \nWill need...
Depending on how much hp, new mounts, fans, fuel system, tank, tranny, rear end, trans cooler, and possibly hood. About 6-10k for 600-650 hp
It does not matter what side of the engine you put them on. The drivers side head will have a temperature sending unit screwed into the head between the first 2 spark plugs. If you switch the heads then the temperature wire may not reach.
If it a 350, it is the front left post looking at it from the front bumper.
A 305 had a 3.75 bore with 3.48 stroke. Adding .030 to the bore and using the formula pi times the radius squared times the stroke times the number of cylinders equals 312.
\nSomething is out of balance. Wheels, tires, driveshaft, firing order, torgue convertor? Get someone to drive along side and see if any visible signs can be found. You have to have a starting place.
First of all, A powerglide and a TH 400 turbo are 2 different transmissions. And YES either 1 will bolt right to the big block engines.
If the engine has a condition called "blowby", pressure will build up inside the crankcase and oil will blow out the breather. Blowby is best explained as exhaust gas leaking past the piston rings, into the crankcase. The exhaust gas has to go somewhere so it goes out the breather, and in the...
There is no difference. There both the same engines.
stright out of the book: Advertised Horsepower is---165 HP @ 3800 RPMs with a 4-barrel carb. Torque is---260 ( ft. Lbs ) @ 2400 RPMs.
Small block Chevy v-8 engines usually have 2 freeze plugs per side but early 400 blocks have 3 per side. Later 400 engines had two per side. All big block Chevy v-8 engines have 3 per side. NEW ANSWER : He is right on all the above but I think the question was HOW MANY does it have. Most V-8 had...
400 block, with a 350 crankshaft. 383 cid.
Between 1985 and 1993 it had 190 horsepower. 1994 had 210 then it went back down to 195 in the following years.
Timing to high ( adjust as needed ) Bad starter, Week battery, Engine overheating. It will help if I new the year. Check these things first and if you don't find your problem in this area then YOU will need to ask your question again. Thank you.
The answer to the question is no. If the flywheel is ground or damaged it needs to be replaced.
Bad news bro. gotta pull the engine to do this job. To pull them out simply take a punch and a hammer and tap the punch in and pop them out like a cork. Good luck.
99 models were rated at 270, 2000 thru 2004 were 285, and 05 thru 07 classic were 295 because of the elec fan i suppose. New style 07 and up are rated at 315.. These numbers are for the Silverado only. Forgot to mention.
Yes you can, It's the same engine minus the bore and stroke. It will go right in there and everything will bolt right up. Just be sure you take all the sensors off the 350 and put them on the 305 and then hook them all up. The wireing harness is the same.
It is bolted in the very top of the TBI housing behind the 2 injectors. The whole top of the housing will have to be replaced if the regulator is bad. It is all made together.
Stright out of the book: Advertised Horsepower is} 400 CID with a 4-barrel Carb. 175 HP @ 3600 RPMs. { Torque } 290 FT. LBS @ 2800 RPMs. { BORE and STROKE } 4.125 is the Bore. Stroke is 3.750 Measured in inches.
PCV = Positive crankcase ventilation. It draws crankcase gases into the intake air stream and burns them in the combustion process. Emissions control device.
Answer . \nTry a PF454. Answer . ac delco PF35 also known as PF1218 its the longer oil filter if anybody wants to know 1991-1993 Chevrolet Caprice 9C1 with oil cooler lines.. Answer . The PF454 is the smallest I've seen, with the PF25 and PF35(PF1218) the next steps up. Of course there is the...
Take the air cleaner off and look to the left of the throttle body housing and you will see a FLAT squire black plastic piece about the size of a pack of smokes but FLAT bolted to a bracket on the intake that will have a wide flat electrical connector pluged into it. That will be it.
You need a .010 (intake) and a .020 (exhaust) feeler gauge first off. I can't remember the torque specs so look them up. With the valve cover off the first rocker will be intake followed by exhaust, repeat times 6. Bar the engine over in normal (clockwise) direction as viewed from the front of the...
Go to Everything you might and might not need.
Change engine oil and substitute one of the quarts of oil with one quart of automatic transmission fluid. Run engine for 1000 miles. Change engine oil again with all oil.
360.42 Cubic inches. Math people. Pie (3.14) times the radius (stock Chevy 350 bore is 4.00, .060 over is 4.060, radius = 2.030) squared. Multiply by stroke, stock 350 is 3.48 in. then multiply by 8.
A 350 is a small block and all the engine parts are small. The 454 is a big block and everything is big. Nothing will interchange.
Overheating, running out of oil, or something falling into the carb, into a cylinder, blocking the piston from comming all the way up on it's stroke.
Sounds like the ignition timing is to high, Adjust the timing. If I knew the year, I may be able to help you more with your problem.
You can if you want too, It will go right on there.
You have to remove the pulley first and you need a power steering pulley puller to do it. You can get one from Napa for usually about $40. There are bolts behind the pulley that hold the pump to the mounting bracket.
Answer . around 6-8 degrees with the vacuum advance blocked off.. electronic ignition has no vacuum advance! How does one blank off the electronic advance???
In late 1999 GM. changed and compleatly REDESIGNED The frames, engines, Transmissions nothing will interchange below 1999. NOTHING IS THE SAME.
Take the filter off and have a good look at the mounting flange. Could be an old gasket is stuck up there, or some other debris, or maybe the two bolts that hold the adapter are loose.
Facing the engine from the front, it's the first one on your right,the firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. (clockwise rotation) Standing in front of the car facing the motor,number one is the front plug on the right (drivers side). You willalso find the cylinder number stamped on the intake manifold...
Answer . A 1977 caprice was using the same 267cid engine as the impala at the time, wikipedia says it had around 170hp.
No, they did not. The smallest big block Chevy is the 396. They also made a small block and big block 400.
The block casting. If the engine is in the vehicle this will be harder. Preferably the engine is on an engine stand and turned upside down with the block skirt facing up. Remove your oil pan and with your rotating and reciprocating assembly's installed, bar the engine over. Watch the the connecting...
Yes. Fuel injectors that are worn out can "slobber" fuel into the engine creating a rich mixture. This means to much fuel, not enough air = poor fuel economy. This can also be caused by a very dirty air cleaner, bad Oxy sensor(s), bad mass air flow sensor, carboned IAC valve and a host of other...
Depends on what color the smoke is. White, is water. Cracked head, or block, or blown head gasket. A cylinder leakdown test which tell you which. Black, is "rich," or too much fuel is being put into the motor. Probably a carb., issue. Blue is oil. Just on start up, or, only when it is revved, would...
With GM Flywheels they say you can get away with 0.010" run-out, but I wouldn't go past 0.008". Ideal is 0.005" or less. Measure run-out at the outer edge of the flywheel. The best way to measure run-out is to use a dial indicator.
you don't really torque them, you tighten little by little as you shake them up and down until they are snug, the tighten just a little more, too much will leave you with bent pushrods Answer Actuall, the 87 uses hydrolic roller lifters, so the procedure would be to just tighten them down. I...
first, remove the coil wire from distributor, but not the coil. Pull # 1 plug, (drivers side front of engine) and roll over engine. feel for the air blowing out of cylinder. (it will push your finger off the hole. Look at the timing tab on the timing cover and roll engine over to 0 deg. on tab. This...
The best and simplest thing to do is order a fuel injection kit from a reputable company. It is very expensive usually, but if money isn't a problem that is the route to take. The other route is find what you need off of say a 1993 mustang 5.0 and remove the lower and upper intakes, wiring harness,...
The last year for the 327 in a C10 was 1968.
It depends specifically on the build, but it is common for those motors to make between 300 and 450 horsepower before any power adders. This horsepower range is merely limited by the amount of money the builder has to work with, as there are even 700hp stroked 302's.
need year of vehicle first.1995
