1978 Chevrolet Stepside 350 - Winter Cold Start
This is my 1978 Chevrolet Stepside 350. I bought this truck for $300 bucks
believe it or not, it runs great, had it for about 3 years now, never any
Done a few modifications to it so far, like the grille, custom parking
lights, torn out the terrible old interior.
I look forward to doing a whole truck overhaul on it soon, but for now,
it's my toy.
I know, it's snowing.. I live in washington, that should explain it.

79 CAMARO 350 CID RUNNING WITH MECHANICAL FUEL PUMP KNOCK
Long story short, I suspected this fuel pump was making a knocking sound on
a freshly built 327cid. So I put the fuel pump on this rebuilt 350 that was
known to have no engine noises. It made the same noise as when on the 327
cid. This is for all you out there that can't pinpoint the source of a rod
or valvetrain knock. It would tick at 800rpm and knock at 3500rpm. I did
not RPM it to 3500 so you can't hear the knock, but idling you can hear the
tick. The knock sounded like a rod was going to come out of the block !
Sounded exactly like the knock was coming from the oil pan, but I had a
mechanics stethoscope to verify it was the pump before doing this little
test swap. Pump was was made in CHINA!
