Default Question bout a 350 small block

I have a 350 small block bored 30 over in great condition cept it needs
bottom end rebuilt.

Anyone know the average cost of rebuilding it? its a 73 carburated 350 nothing special just wondering if anyone had an estimate on what replacing the bottom end like oil pump n stuff cause its not getting oil to upper end of the motor

If your not getting oil to the top end of the engine, check the cam bearings for excess wear that will cause the oil to run back into the block instead of flowing thru the pushrods and oiling the rockers

Or just buy a FORD

if its not getting oil to the top end, your going to have some bearing issues to fix. my guess... $500 in machine shop $1000 for a rebuild kit and then its your time.

Cost of machine work will vary wildly depending on what you have done, your location, and what type of shop you go to. Best to call around and get some quotes. As far as the rebuild kit goes it depends on what you expect to do with this motor when your finished. If you just want a fresh mild motor a $250 master kit will serve you well. https://shop.enginekits.com/osb/specials.cfm

you can order a good master kit through northern auto parts.

heres a linky to a chevy 350 kit for your yr of motor for under 200 bucks. they have great service and plus you can upgrade parts for a small fee per part.

I get all my rebuild parts from this guy. If you don't need an entire kit, then you can build your own with what you want. Bruce is a good guy too.
