Post your junk builds! Ones that worked and mistakes you ran into when you tried to avoid machine work. Motors that shouldn't have ran but did, things that shouldn't have been bolted together, but worked, everything of that nature. I'm in the process of throwing together a rusty old 350 2 bolt main and need some inspiration. Been down the money road many times but unfortunately this block is only a temporary engine so it's not seeing any high end anything or a machine shop. I'll start... I once bought a truck 350 off Craigslist covered in mud. Had to scoop the oil out of the pan by hand due to how much sludge was built up. Stuck some 305 heads on, an edelbrock dual plane, stock dished pistons with a speed pro cam and it ran forever. Burnout machine. Not too great on the top end though. Hell, my roll cage cost as much as that motor. Guy I know has an early Vega that runs mid 12s. I asked him to open the hood so I could see what he was running. Ugly as all sin inside there. He said he had vortec heads and "a 327 or maybe a 350 with a .500 something" cam. I swear he must have had an industrial sized tube of rtv to seal that thing. These are the combos I want to see in this thread.
