Installing A Chevy 350 cu. in. Engine

Replacing a 350 cubic inch engine in a Chevy Van at first sounds difficult but once the radiator and body parts are removed it makes for a much easier job.
There was a bad connecting rod bearing which was confirmed by opening up the oil filter where there were lots of metal particles.

To save time we ordered a "long block" which is a complete rebuild with the heads included. All that is required is to swap parts and perform running checks once the installation is complete.
