    Default Motor is out of my boat.. What would you do?

    So i got all my wiring and plumbing all redone. Just waiting on carpet and then it all goes back together.. However currently i have the motor out and am taking this opertunity to go over that.

    My plans are to pull the heads off to check for blockages. I have uneven heating and while she is out of the boat might as well pull the heads and check for blockages or anything else that may cause water obstructions.

    Beyond the heads anything else i should take atvantage of the motor being out to check? I know squat about the motor it self since i didnt put it together.

    I would kick up the compression, throw a blower and injection on, maybe plumb in some nitrous, have everything chromed or polished, Put in a new cam, There is a start. lol

    Seriously, if yor starter is a bitch to get at, you may consider changing that while it is out.

    You totaly read my mind.. Now if you would like to finance those add ons ill be happy to plug them up...

    Yes starter is a real PITA. Thought about replacing it.. I also thought about having it dyno'ed but i have no idea what that would cost or how to go about finding someone to do it...

    I was also wondeing if there is anything i should do with that oil pan or picks ups or whatever.. It all ran great before i pulled it.. I had to pull it to pull apart my pump.

    I'd check it over real good and go back together with all new hoses and new brass expansion plugs. Take your starter to a rebuilder and at least have it checked , (maybe gone through to be safe). Does your oil pan have a drain tube on it? Now's the time. Of course, change the oil and filter while it's out. Might look at the spark plugs while they are easy to get to. Now's also the time to put on a water bypass kit to protect your engine from the pump over pressuring the water system. Check your U-Joints for roughness and grease them.

    Hoses are ready to go on this weekend. The pan does have a drain tube on it. Oil change and filter change ready for this weekend.. What is a "water bypass kit" Ive got several valves on my water hoses to regulate preasure, is that what your talkin about or is there something else? Plugs are also on the menu.

    Question about the filter. I went to autozone and picked up a new filter.. Same diameter but seems shorter than the one on there. According to the parts look up this filter is correct for my motor.. is there something different i should be using than stock fram filter? Also what weight is suggested in oil? SBC 350 BTW.

    the filter you got is a short one that is commonly used on cars. Better to get the long filter, commonly used on pickups and Suburbans.

    Most people here don't like FRAM, me included. Suggest you get a Wix or Napa Gold (made by Wix).

    Just so you know, the wix and napa filters are different. They are supposivly the same but when i took them both apart the napa was missing a gasket peice inside... Not sure why or what it was for, after seeing that i always went the extra mile (litterally a mile) to get a real WIX filter.

    All of our filters are made by wix. Chevys have 2 different filters 1060-1061

    1061 doesnt have the aint-drain back gasket, 1060 does. Only difference between wix and napa filters is they drop the 5 at the beginning of the wix number to get out napa number. Hope that helps

    Napa and wix are great filters, but i prefer the Baldwins. The baldwins are just alittle better in regaurds to element contamination straining. Did that make sence?????

    idea: add a hose to the oil pan for easy oil changes.
