Hello to all those Oldsmobile fans out there!!!
This is my first engine build and also my first ever YouTube Video, so
bear with me..lol. This engine came out of a 1970 olds cutlass without A/C.
I kept the internals stock because its a great engine just as it came from
the factory. It has a Mondello balancer and sealed power cam and lifters.
Also added an HEI distributor and R46sz plugs for easier starts and
hopefully better fuel economy on high octane(91-93). Ask if you want
details on the motor or anything else, Bill
Information about Oldsmobile V8 engines
In this video I talk about the "late" Oldsmobile V8 and offer tips on how
to identify them by number.

entirely different block, etc.
Sometimes my info gets a bit twisted when it stays inside my head for a
while, so a correction is that '77-80 heads are 3A, not 4A. 4A heads are
Also, to clarify and avoid confusion, this...7 A is a 350 head, this...7A
is a later 307 head. You can also tell the difference easily by the ports.
Late 307 and 260 ports are half the size of any other versions.
Trivia: The Olds 403 was used in 1977-79 Pontiac Trans-Am's, but not all of
Of note...the engine in the video is painted the incorrect shade of gold,
which appears to be the Krylon generic gold. The proper shade is slightly
darker and less "glitzy"

CAR, SENSE THEN ALOT HAS CHANGED, LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINKABOUT THE NEW
Olds 350 motor running out of car
This is the motor that I put into my 1985 Delta 88, replacing the blown
307. It's from a 1968 Olds Delmont. It is a 350 Rocket motor, 395558 block,
5 heads, and has a TH 400 tranny bolted up to it.
How you start it out of the car you All you gotta do is run a fuel line to
the carb and the other end to a fuel can with about a gallon of gas. Run a
battery to the disturbitor, and touch the wires together for the dis and
the starter and if it runs, it will fire right up
