I've been having an issue starting it, once I start it the idle gets lumpy and if I try to back up my hill I lose all power and it dies. Try to start it again and no...

    My 73 coupe has an aftermarket gauge claiming 50 psi of oil pressure in park, but the second you put it in reverse or drive, it drops to around 5 psi, and only climbs to around 25 at most when driving. Any ideas why? It’s been like this for a while. If I put it back into park afterwords it still...

    I inherited an 70 Nova it sat for almost 30 years. Got it running, but it’s burring almost a quart of oil every 100 miles. It would be worth it to pull the 307 engine and do an overhaul or just swap it with an 350?

    Bought a bunch of engine parts I'm trying to cobble what I can together for a build but I'm missing one two-bolt main cap. Anyone have a spare they may part with?

    Found a 3970010 350 engine on craigslist. It's a 4-bolt crank, has 997 cylinder heads. Probably needs a rebuild but rotates freely. The guy wants $400. Is that a reasonable price?

    I've got a 74 nova with a 250 L6/3 spd Saginaw/8.5 10 bolt. I've looked at this a couple of ways and want to build the car in segments as money allows starting with the engine. With that being said I want to run the 3 speed for a while. It’s in great shape and shifts smooth, has a Hurst Indy...

    Hi everybody. I blew my engine about a year ago when I first got my Nova. Today I bought a 1969 350 v8. I was really excited and happy because the engine appears to be in great shape with very low miles. BUT, the owner (who gave me the shop paperwork) said that it was bored to.80. I was excited...

    I have a top end built 350 in my 77 Nova. My question is what pistons, rings, rods, bearings, and crankshaft would I need to build this engine to withstand a 200 shot of No2 approximately 10 times a month during the racing season? It would be most helpful if you could include jegs part...
