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

Oldsmobile Rocket 350 running on a homemade test stand
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
