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.
In 74 Chevy went to the HEI system. Prior to that just points.
That would be a bad thing. About the only way it could happen would be if one side got plugged up with sludge. Not likely.
It has adjustable rockers.
Did you replace the fuel filter? Sometimes a partially blocked fuel filter will present itself as a bad miss at highway speeds.
Answer . Most all motorcycle have the vin number on the steering head (that is located behind the headlight or fairing. If it has a fairing it will be hard to see. If the frame is the original there should be a sticker or tag located there on one side with the numbers on it and stamped on the...
Trace the runners. You can see the exhaust runners leading to the exhaust valves, and the intake runners leading to the intake valves.
280, to 300. NEW ANSWER: Straight out of the book. Advertised Horsepower is-175 HP @ 3600 RPMs. That engine STOCK didn't have HORSEPOWER it had torque
Answer . \nthis is just a shot in the dark but do you have to much oil in your car?\nalso if the head was ever warped (ie from a blown head gasket) the surfaces in between the heads and the engine block could be uneven creating a weak spot were the gasket would usually hold. this is just a...
the sun cam from the galaxy and the space all planets revolve around it
There's air in there somewhere. You got to get it out. I like those one-man bleeder pumps that pull through the bleeder screw.
You don't have to change the cam, but a cam that is perfect for a 350 may not be perfect for a 383. Cam manufacturers offer technical assistance to help you select the right cam for your application.
Usually. It depends on if the airflow characteristics are ideally suited to the application. If nothing else, they are lighter, which means the engine needs less power to move the car.
You'll need a valve spring compresser, compress the spring down, toward the head then remove the retainers and the valve should slip right out.
whats the firing order for a 1885 Chevy 350 v8 I am not sure why someone answered the question with the above answer but the firing order on all Chevy V8 engines in the 80's was 18436572.
Answer . this would depend on on what vihicle it came from.. also what carb/injector setup is on it.anywhere from about 150hp to 230 i think...
It closes and keeps the VALVES shut when needed.
It is between the back of the engine and the front of the transmission. You must remove the transmission to get to it. NO other way.
Answer . To the person in general.\nOnce you have all the timing marks all properly set. all the timing gears has timing indications on them, which has to be set, normally pointing at each other dead on. On some cars there is a mark on the engine that indicates were the rotor needs to be...
The water level drops, and you have to add to it every so often. If not, it will get hot, often, and easily.
You can't, It is spring loaded and it adjust itself.
16 or 20 gallon tanks were available on the 1984 c10
Right here:\nhttp://www.directeddealers.com/manuals/og/viper/G564V_07-05.pdf
It'll leak pretty bad without gaskets. I soak the gaskets overnight in a pan of water before installing. Seems to help.
Yes it is fuel injection. It is called a TBI / Throttle body injection.
No it will not. The 2000 transmission housing has been redesigned and the 1996 transmission is not even close to being the same. But yet there both called a 4L60E. You will have to use a LATE 1999 to date transmission to fit that 2000 model.
Engine running hotter then 220 degrees can cause valvetrain noise. Bad fuel can also cause valve noise / PINGING sound. Ignition timing to high / Advanced to far, can also cause engine noise.
If it is the TPI Engine, the 350 is rated at 265hp at the flywheel. (many agree that this is an underrating by GM and its closer to 290)
There are two schools of thought here. Basically, for racing\, the cylinder head, for street use, in the intake, near the thermostat housing, or, the water pump.
there was no 350 in the camaros in 83 just 305 and v6
Answer . The bellhousing, the starter, the exhaust manifords, maybe the flexplate (flywheel) and the computer, and probably the motor mounts. I'm not sure if the V6 crossmember that the motor mounts bolt to will have to be changed or not. I guess it might..
I'm not sure the exact spec but for a backyard mechanic you can use the paper from a matchbook as a spacer. Insert the outer cover of the matchbook between the electrodes close the gap so that the paper just barely moves freely between them.
I would check the throttle position sensor. It is located on the right side(pass. side) of the throttle body. Remove the air filter, and the rest of the filter housing. The sensor will have wires going to it, and can be removed easily. Once removed you may be able to clean the moving parts with var...
where are the temperature sending unit located on a 1990 Chevy engine 5.7
that would be the casting number of a Chevy 350
It's a .060" over 350 with a 400 crank
It was used in 1986 and up, some of them are 2- bolt mains and 4-bolt mains. They were NOTHING special. It does have a 1-piece rear main seal.
Depends on what year 350. It can be 2 degrees BTDC or 4 degrees BTDC. I would try 4 degrees and see how it runs.
Ok. For an engine to run, you need three things. Fuel, spark, and air. If you are on earth, you have the air, thing handled. Next, check for fuel. Take off the air cleaner, and push the throttle back. You should see fuel squirt into the venturi. Pump it a couple of times while looking. You will see...
Answer . if you unplug the knock sensor and run it and it clears up then change the knock sensor if it doesn't check cam caps for torque specs and lifters if it set up for awhile
600 cfm will be enough for that engine.
\nDepends on which engine.\n. \n2.4 Liter holds 4.5 quarts with filter change.\n. \n2.7 Liter holds 5 quarts with filter change.
You can get the sequence out of any repair manual such as Motor's, Chiltons, or Haynes. The idea is to start in the center and go in a clockwise pattern working your way out to the ends. Usually three stages is adequate, such as 30 ft/lbs, 45 ft/lbs, then final torque on the third pass.
It could be a freeze plug but it also is not uncommon for the intake manifold gasket to blow out and allow engine coolant to leak out.
FRAM PH30 or PH30TG is the correct cross reference to a AC-Delco PF25
Need to know the year of engine and what it is in. YOU WILL NEED TO ASK YOUR QUESTION AGAIN with that info. THANK YOU.
If you have ever looked at a Mazda bravo (b2500) you would know that it is not listed in the owners manual or placard under the hood, In fact I cant find it anywhere, By way of trial and error I have found the best clearances would be .008 in and .010ex , Ive had my bravo for a couple of years and...
The 160 thermostat should open about 20 degrees sooner than a 180.
In the US, it's the passenger side.
it burns oil... ur rings might be bad or if its just when you first start than its ur o rings Black smoke indicates excessive fuel (flooding). Blue smoke indicates oil. White smoke indicates coolant.
The first thing to do is remove the snap ring on the end of the crankshaft. The puller is made up of a half moon steel plate that slips between the block and the gear, a heavy steel bar that has bolts threaded through each end and that screw into the half moon piece, and a larger bolt that is...
The best way is to weigh the car with driver and then take it to a dragstrip and run it down the 1/4 mile. then use the formula hp=(.00426xmph)x(.00426xmph)x(.00426xmph)xweight.
If the 1965 had a 230, 250 straight six or the small block V-8, the 89 will bolt in. If that 65 had the 292 straight six, the 89 V-8 will not bolt in. The passenger side frame mount will not line up. The passenger side frame mount must be replaced.
All but the LT-1, which had a special oiling system on it, take 5, quarts. The LT-1, takes 5.5.
NO! And you have five main bearings and eight rod bearings each bearing comes in two pieces. cut a piece of paper about 3/4" wide and 2 1/2" long form a U shape that's about what a crank bearing looks like,just a little thicker.
A set of long tube headesrs,a 4 barrel intake and a 650 carb was my best upgrade on my 84 blazer. I bet it added 50 rear wheel horse just by bolting them on.
Answer . align the crankshaft pulley mark with mark on oil pump housing, and align marks on cam gears with marks on rear cover, then install timing belt.
Safely you shouldn't go further then 0.60 over. But if you are just boring it to do a redneck motorjob rethink it. Look into stroker kits. You'll be 1000 times further ahead.
Its called valve overlap. It it used in the scavanging process of the engine to both ensure a clear and complete air/feul charge and to assist in keep the crown of the piston cooler.
4 degrees BTDC / Before top dead center.
you haven't given enough info what year make model V8. But the short answer is yes with the right adapter plate you can basically mate up any tranny to any engine.
Because that is when GM went to the first generation Vortec heads, and, they overcame injection lean issues.
You will not find this anywhere because the 350 was not stock in a Wrangler. Common sense needs to rule here for starters. Just because the 350 has the power to pull a nice load, does not mean it is a good idea. The big factor to consider is the short wheel base of the Wrangler as well as if it has...
The computer controls more and more on the modern vehicles, even the shift point and internal hydraulic pressures. The code means that the computer has detected a fault in your automatic transmission and that you need to have it checked out. Typically the code scanners that your local auto parts...
1997 Chevrolet Truck C1500 1/2ton P/U 2WD 5.7L SFI 8cyl The Spark Plug Gap .060 (In thousandths of an inch) I looked up all engines for this year and it seems the gap is the same for all..
it could be a head leaking or the intake manifold, if its coming from the very top its most likely the intake manifold gasket
Depends on how bad it is....but I wouldn't advise driving it at all. A bad harmonic balancer can distort the front end of the crank and beat the main bearings to pieces. You are looking at creating a lot more damage if you continue to drive it.
Yes. The bellhousing from Olds to Chevy is different. If you want to use the Olds trans., you will need an adaptor. Kenne Bell used to make one. Get headers for a Chevelle, of the same year, if this is a skylark, or cutlass. I think you wil have to run the short rocker box's, (valve covers) as I...
There should be a vacuum port about halfway up the primary metering block on the passenger side.
Probably not, unless they were added later. It should have roller lifters however.
It depends on what you mean by a "provisional" license. Typically that is reserved for someone who has lost a license because of violations such as driving while impaired. If you have lost a license because of impaired driving or exceeding the number of "points" that have been acquired, you'll...
no on a 350 it is on the driver side and on a 305 it is on the passenger side
It shouldn't cost more than 30 bucks or so for a rebuilt model.
dude, with time and money, you can do anything.
A transmission that does not use a clutch and pressure plate to disconnect from the engine.
Answer . Are we talking about a 1997 - 3.1L OHV engine here?\nIf so, it's a two step operation.\nFirst step is tighten the bolts to 89 in-lbs\nSecond step is rotate the bolts an additional 30-degrees.\nMake sure that as you're tightening the bolts that the pushrods are sitting properly in the ...
The 1994 full size Chevy used the serpentine belt system to drive the pump and fan and it turned them counterclockwise.
