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.
