The engine of my car is the original 327 mill. In the beginning it started as a 210 HP version of the small-block.
The previous owner has swapped the carb to a 4 barrel (Q-Jet) and a HEI ignition.
When I pulled of the heads, I found out that the original heads where long gone,
but I found a pair of 350 heads from a 1991 Targetmaster engine......
These heads were refurbished with some great help from Øystein Solberg. Thanks!
The engine will get new gaskets and some new Chevy Orange paint all over.
I will check the pistons, timing chain and bearings and replace where necessary.
