Digging into my Rocket 350
Now that I've got the engine pulled from my 1970 Cutlass Supreme, it's time ot tear it down a bit and get ready for some cleaning and upgrades!
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 PS....heres a link to the car as it is currently with the motor installed....turn it up with earphones!! https://www.facebook.com/bill.ridout/videos/929899603722714/?l=774879883417 6981200
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
