The engine cleaned up really nicely.





However....after spending a couple of days tearing it down and cleaning it up, I decided to run the casting number to see exactly what I have. And mother fucker....its not a 350, its a fucking 305!!! SHIT, SHIT, SHIT. I don't want that pig, shitty fuel mpg and low power. Who would want that piece of crap engine? I finally got rid of mine in the '27 and another one has fallen in my lap.

Oh well...the price is right - free. I'll run it if I gotta until I can afford or find a proper motor for the '51.

scrap yard will be happy to take it off your hands

edit:
still too dirty for my tastes, you're going to take all the caps off and check the bearings right?

The car is a '27...so 86 years old...pushing 87. Was found in Washington State - On Fox Island off the Puget (sp?) Sound. I'm the first person to ever have the car titled. Washington was a non-title state.

I've decided to can the 305. Might put it back together and keep it in the corner for a drivetrain on a possible future project. In the mean time, will buy a short block, then have a valve job on the heads and put it all back together. Worst case, I'll just have the existing 350 rebuilt. Can throw about $700-800 at it. Don't have to get crazy with the motor.
