Is it tired, or just want a more stout bottom end with 4 bolt mains ?

I've had a couple frugal built 305's, never blew one up.

Just up-graded to double roller timing gear set, RV spec cam.
625cfm carb and a riser/spacer carb base plate topped with
a high volume air filter.
And headers w/2.5" exhaust.

With the right set-up they get pretty good fuel econemy also.

So i was wrong. It was not the master cylinder. Had a buddy come help me. Found it was a broken break line. Got a couple 60 inch pieces of line from NAPA. Had to make a few trips to Pendozi machine shop for fittings and princess auto for a flare wrench flare flange kit and a tubing bender. Got er fixed. Ol chevy is back on the road.

Swapped out a bad alternator on the old war horse. Changed the battery too.


Unreal how much money u save doing it yourself

Just did an oil change as well. Probably saved 500 dollars or more in about an hour.

Really got to hand it to the guys who are too pretty to do their own work. They must have a lot more money than i do
