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.
  == 1985 Chevy S10 2.8L firing order ==     For a 1985 Chevy S10 with a 2.8L engine the firing order is: 1-2-3-4-5-6 The Distributor rotation is clockwise.
Yes, but you will be disappointed in performance.... There will be a VERY significant drop. You will still need to re-calibrate the computer because the 305 has a different fuel table than the 350.
  == Hello... ==     First off, it would be helpfull to know weather or not it is a 1.6 or 1.8 DOHC engine...second, why would you need to know where they are at, (on side of block)?????
  It's pretty much the same as any other vehicle. Underneath the truck just behind the front axle is a large metal pan with a bolt in the bottom. This is the oil pan. Unscrew the bolt from the oil pan to let the oil drain. Replace the plug (bolt). The oil filter should be visible from the bottom...
Ripple voltage is when the DC voltage varies between (for example)12.5 Volts and 13.5 Volts, and does so rapidly. Technically, an alternator produces "alternating current", (hence the name, 'Alternator') and that AC voltage is converted to DC by running the current through a bank of "diodes"....
  == Answer ==   Most common, O2 sensor, but could be many things. What year, how many miles, and is the engine light on/been on?   == Answer ==   If it's carburated it could be the air cleaner or adjustment of the choke. If it's injected it might be a faulty injector that isn't...
  == Answer ==     the oil pressue sensor should be in the rear of the motor just behind the manifold there are several types but a 1 wire or hose should hook up to it   == Answer ==     I was afraid of that -- that's what the Chilton's manual says, too, but it doesn't tell me...
    == timing ==       if it is the same as my 1990 there is a timing window on the top of the bell housing on the drivers end of the engine. you have to remove the air filter housing to see it. there are some marks on the housing. 0 degrees on the left side and higher numbers...
The backfiring is a sign of a lean condition. Perhaps there are some blockages in the various ports and passages in the carburetor. . If it hasn't been done in awhile, you might want to get a carb kit and clean everything in some commercial carb cleaner, then blow it all out real good with...
Could be the starter drive is not engaging or perhaps you're using the wrong holes for your flywheel. If you have a 153 tooth ring and have the starter in the 168 tooth position, the gears would not mesh.Did it ever start? if it did ,most likely the starter drive is broken, or the pinion ,or...
Yes, especially if the timing is overadvanced.
Yes, but I don't know why you would want to use them on a 350. 305's are limited as far as valve size is concerned because their small bore causes clearance problems with the large valve heads... Larger valves will actually hit the block on a 305. Just about ANY 350 head is better than ANY 305 heads...
ANY year that has a carburetor intake manifold available to install on the block/heads.
  == Answer ==   I wouldn't be so worried about the heads as the pistons. Make sure you have enough clearance so that an open valve won't hit a piston.
Answer . \nHello. I just had to replace my turn signal and ignition switches on my 1997 Blazer. Part of the process was to remove the ignition cylinder. You will have to remove the lower steering column cover and then remove the two screws that secure the top cover in place. You will have toget...
The 1986 Chevrolet 350 cubic inch engine spark plug gap is .027.  Most spark plugs will be pre-gapped by the spark plug manufacturer.
  If you're asking about the compression ratio, it depends on the pistons you choose after boring the block.   no, the way you increase compression is by using different pistons, an ,or smaller chamber heads. boring a block increases cubic inches.
Well, a stock 350 takes 5 quarts. Chevy didn't introduce the 350 until 1967 (Camaro only) so it is not the original engine for a 1966 pickup truck. Either way, with the stock oil pan and filter, capacity is 5 qt.
You'll need to remove the heads and have a machine shop replace the valves, and possibly valve seats. Replacing valves is NOT a job for your average do it yourselfer. Even if the seats are fine, you need special tools to cut them for the new valves. You will also need to use lapping compound to seat...
I was searching for the same thing and came accross a site called "torkspecs.com" they say 33 ft/lbs but I want to make sure myself since it is a Auminum intak.e. I hope this is help to you.No more than 35 ft/lbs. To be very accurate with the torque, use a 3/8 drive torque wrench not a 1/2 drive....
I wouldn't think so. If it is a Vortec 350 engine made after 1996 it should have the hard plastic gasket with the rubber type sealing surface. If they are leaking fluid the intake is not torqued correctly to the heads.    AnswerIn the last four weeks I purchased Prestone(The label said mixes...
If you haven't already done one I suggest that you get someone to at least supervise your first.Remove and disassemble the engine, Take all of the parts to a machine shop and have the cylinders checked and bored if necessary. Have the Rods reconditioned. Have the crank turned if necessary. Replace...
A colder engine runs tighter. As the engine heats it expands loosening the engine causing loss of compression. Engine will most likely be using a lot of oil(Usually in older high mileage engines). Could also be a module in the distributor is going bad. If the engine has a lot of miles on it or if it...
Try 8 degrees BTDC and listen for part-throttle pinging. More is better up until the point where you notice pinging.
Loosen the distributor hold-down bolt. Standing in front of the vehicle looking at the engine turning the distributor clockwise advances the timing. Turning the distributor counter-clockwise is retarding the timing. Hold the distributor steady while tightening the hold-down bolt. Factory hold-down...
\nproper answer:\n. \nthe ignition timing is controlled by the ECU , the or \nthe engine computer as some might called.\ntoday the ECU is called the PCM.\nthe timing is set on the fly using lookup tables inside the ECU.\nthese tables are indexed by RPM and Load (vacuum).\n. \nthe base timing is set...
The 1970 engine had higher compression, but the big difference is in the way horsepower was calculated. In actuality, the 1970 was only a little more powerful than the 1977.
First off, this is a dirty greasy job if done with the engine in  the vehicle. But basically all you need to do is jack up the  car,(use jack stands),high enough so you can move around under it.  You may have to remove exhaust components depending on which freeze  plug you have to replace. These...
Disconnect negative cable from battery, relieve fuel pressure, disconnect throttle cable, disconnect fuel lines, disconnect any vacuum lines, disconnect electrical plugs, remove bolts holding throttle body, lift off throttle body, remove damaged gasket, clean area, replace in reverse order.
== Answer ==   8 degrees btc   Timing should be at 0 degrees ATDC that is factory   XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX   You need to set the base timing on any car/truck that has a distributor. There is a tan/black wire that is usually under the dash down low on the passenger's side. This is the...
TDC is 0( sometimes just a large line). A 4 cycle engine hits TDC or '0' once every 2 revolutions; So as the engine revolves, ( one revolution )it is at bottom dead center (BDC) then comes around to TDC to start the process over again. I hope this helps you. Mark    Answerthe "0" mark on the...
The most likely causes are either a bad plug or bad wire. Take the electrical circuit apart one by one and work backward from the plug. Pull the spark plug boot off the plug and push a test light into where the plug head would be, making sure to have the tip against the metal in the boot's clip....

To get the belt off, you have to put a breaker bar into the square hole in the tensioner, and either pull up or down. The tensioner spring is what tighten's the belt. It is just three bolts then to get the tensioner off.
Yes. If the valves (rocker arms/push rods) are adjusted too tight, the valves will hang open instead of closing. This will result in a loss of compression at the very least. It can also prevent the engine from pulling in air/fuel as well.
The distributor should face forward rather than backward on the Chevy 350. It is important to mark the front face of the distributor before removing it.
== Answer ==   Since it would have to be rear wheel drive, there isn't a transaxle that will mate to a 350, you would need to modify the ENTIRE CAR!! Plus, it would never pass emissions...   -ahem-   yes, it is possible to swap a V8 with about the same power into the car... mind you it...
The same way you adjust regular non roller tipped rockers. With a hydraulic camshaft, with the valve completely closed, tighten until all the slack is removed (you can spin the pushrod while tightening, you will be able to feel when the slack is gone) then tighten another 1/4 turn. Many people will...
The block casting numbers are on the top driver side of the bellhousing flange at the back of the engine. The engine code is stamped into a pad on the block deck in front of the passenger side cylinder head.
    == Answer ==     You will find whether you have a th350 transmssion or any metric trans , the dipstick will be located on the right side of the vehicle in the rear. Your (left hand side facing the engine)     there should be a tube that comes up between the ac unit and the...

350 and 305 cranks have the same stroke (3.48") so putting a 350 crank into a 305 won't change the ci at all. A 400 crank has a 3.75" stroke, so using that crank in a 305 would make a 329 ci engine.However, in either case you'd have to have the crank re-balanced to work with the lighter 305 pistons....
  == Answer ==   305 and 350 share the same stroke.
well lets see in 1987 Chevrolet swtiched to throttlebody injection so the timing is computer controlled. So factory has no recommended adjustments.
Depending on the year, a Buick Century may have been available with a small block Chevy, so yes, probably. If it had a Buick engine, you would need a transmission with the Chevy bolt pattern. There are different tail shaft lengths, so you would need to get the same length or modify the driveshaft.
A little kerosene won't hurt anything, but there are much better fuel system cleaners available at your local auto parts store. Agreed, kerosene will do little to clean the system. Seafoam and Techron are both excellent fuel system cleaners.
1 should be the first terminal to the right of the bat connector housing, the distributor turns clockwise, and the firing order is; 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 IF U had the Distribut-or out-U need 2 put the Timing marks on ZERO &turn the engine over until BOTH Valves are closed on #1 cylnder---...

  They are on top of each cylinder head one on the right one on the left may be gray or blue.
are you talking about a sm. block hei. dist. if so there are 2 spade connectors on the side of the cap , one says tach.       The tach signal comes from the negative side of the coil.
It's probably a 4 bolt, but there's no way to tell without looking. The same block was used for both.
  First, check that everything is turning properly. If you have a water pump, alternator, idler pulley... whatever, that's not turning freely, it should be repaired or replaced. Next, check the tensioner. One of the idler pulleys will be "spring loaded", meaning that it will hold tension...
  The speed sensor is located on the transmission on tail shaft behind the transfer case
I would almost bet it's the directional light switch in the steering column. Do they not work when you step on the brake pedal also?   === ANOTHER ANSWER ===   I'd put my money on a faulty ground at one of the turn signal lights. Watch the bulb when you turn on the turn signal with the...
  == Answer ==   Left of the steering column, under the dashboard.
the bolts are 3/8-16 . as for the length, all that is necessary is about 3/8 of an inch of bolt sticking through the pump, and gasket.a rule of thumb is the length of bolt you need to secure something ,is equal to the diameter of the bolt. that is besides the thickness of what ever you are securing ...
i just set the timing on my 91 tercel... i also have the 3EE engine... difference may be that mine was SOHC and yours might be DOHC... your best bet is to spend $15 at autozone or advanced auto and pick up a HAYNES book for your year car.... it will have the timing marks and everything that you...
Most likely not. GM didn't start using electronic engine management of any kind for a couple more years.
Answer . Either pull the engine or the transmission. Before going to the trouble, check to see if replacing the seal will work out. Open the oil cap with the engine running. Place your hand over the hole and see if there is pressure (called blowby). If pressure is building inside the engine it...
  == Answer ==     Is your ignition wire hooked up to your distributor?   1.This small pink wire hooks into the top left part of the distributor marked "BAT"     Is your battery fully charged?     Is your starter wired up correctly?   1.The 2 skinny red wires and the...
  if it's a zz3 or zz4, the red line is 5800 rpms, keep it under that for 500 mi. and you should be fine. I like changing the oil for the first time at 1000,mi. but it isn't a must.   if it's either of the engines I mentioned, good luck . The are great engines, I've had serveral of them ,and...
Either 153 or 168. If it has an automatic transmission, it's 153. If it's a manual transmission, it will have 153 for the 1.5" clutch and 168 for the 11" clutch. An easy way to tell is the starter bolts. If both bolts are the same distance from the starter nose, it's a 153 tooth flywheel. If the...
get the first piston on the engine TDC (top dead center) take the cap off the distributer and adjust it until the rotar is pointing at #1 cylinder then it will be enough in time to start then use a timiing light from there
\n. \n Answer \n. \nWith an ohm meter .05 ohms.You change the settings by loosening up the screws and the slowly turn the tps till the ohm meter reads ,05 while holding it in place tighten the screws and the cover the screws with finger nail polish this keeps them from backing out.Also makes...
Answer . This is the diameter of the cylinder hole in the engine block for the pistons.
Absolutely.  The ONLY parts that aren't interchangeable between a 2 bolt and 4 bolt block are the main bearing caps themselves.  The crank, rods, pistons, camshaft, oil pump, etc, are ALL interchangeable.  So yes, the pistons will work just fine.
    == Answer ==       If the heads are in good condition and will be removed, I would surface them, install new valve springs and check the installed spring height. if it is a later model engine with lower compression than 10 to 1 piston clearance will not be a problem.Also this...
Change the intake manifold and fuel pump...  And naturally put a carb on top of the new intake. 
Change intake manifolds to a manifold that accepts a carburetor. That's really all you need to do. I'd recommend against it though, because EFI is a LOT more efficient than a carburetor is. HP will likely go down while fuel consumption and emissions will likely go up. Now it will work just fine...
it is behind the black cover on the fire wall passenger side top it is a one wire connector protruding throught the wiring harness and taped to it. it has one wire tan with black tracer. hope this helps
Many possiblities. It depends on if you have a coil or an HEI ignition. If you have a coil, check your distributor to make sure your coil wire is attached properly. If your coil is attached, unplug it from your distributor and hold it close to the connection while someone cranks your engine. If you...
  == Answer ==   yes servo motor are use latest technology in the field.
with oil pan off,look at your main bearings on your crank shaft,the cover of the bearing will have one bolt on each side this is two bolt main or two on each side this is four bolt main    AnswerTo tell if a motor has 2 bolt or 4 bolt main caps, you must remove the oil pan and inspect the...
== The weather is the atmosphere in term of temperature(from my science class) Sence of oxygen ==
You could do it, but it will require major modifications (when you say throttle body I assume it's a fuel injected engine), you will have to replace the MAF, reprogram the computer, replace all the sensors which are specific for the origina throttel body, esentially what wil happen is that the CFM...
remove the transmission and torque converter. Remove the bolts from the pump (front of transmission case) and remove the pump.
  There were several different configurations produced over the years, ranging from about 150cc's to as much as 185cc's.
Just get a 4 bolt main. Don't fool with a "conversion". I don't know what labor is worth in your area, but there's several hours of work to line bore and hone a block, plus the cost of new main caps.  Probably at least $400-$500.
Answer . On the left front in front of the head..
  == Answer ==     Look it up. Google search.   == Answer ==     I had bought a new 1995 5.7 and it was rated at 250 HP. The 1996 Vortec model was rated at 275 HP and HP continued to climb as every year passed. Mark
0 degrees in drive bypass disconnected
  You should be able to remove the header pipes and get the oil pan off. After that, changing an oil pump is not that bad.   If you have room to drop the oil pan, you don't have to pull the engine. sometime you can unbolt the motor mounts ,and jack the engine up a bit. if you do that ,be...
If it has a Rochester carburetor (like the quadrajet) it is actually located inside the carburetor where the fuel line attaches to the carburetor. To access it, remove the fuel line then remove the filter housing by loosening the large hex bolt you just removed the fuel line from.
"If it has been at least 2 weeks, you can change them quickly. Just remember not to pull the ear lobe as you put an earring in, push it straight in.
