My 304:In any event, I am interested in finding a write up or discussion about the pros and cons of what can be done to a 304, to give it slightly longer legs for running down our 75 mph freeways, while preserving it's legendary reliability and low end grunt.
Dunno. I haven't looked into it for a while - but have a few hard copies in my files.Thanks Tom. This may be a stupid question, but I have to ask anyway. How does one get to the back issues on the Binder Bulletin? Not much there these days.
Specifically, this is a bad idea for all but a half dozen people.Also, specifically in regard to using 345 heads on a 304, is the 345 intake manifold used as well, or is it a matter of modifying a 304 intake?
Yes, but at the same time, it's still standard bore.Is your engine bored over?
You deck the block, then you deck the block some more, and then go a bit more after that.How did you arrive at the less than 0 decked number for your block. This would raise the compression, so are there other things you need to do to deal with that? Change in timing, a specific cam, the valve spring changes you mentioned, etc.?
