I would like to know more about your build. What other specs for parts? What is its intended use? Planing on increasing the HP?

I am looking at maybe doing a build this winter. Would like to maybe do a turbo and or stroker. I have an new engine block that was set up for racing. It is a DX with splayed main caps.

Hello Kelvin,

The intended use is to drive the Chevrolet Caprice, it is still from the first owner, it has sitting for 20 years with a bad headgasget..
We want to make a more reliably 350 DX engine
The parts we used: new made lower compression oversized pistons, main and head studs, steel headgasgets, compleet engine sealkit, all these parts are from Mondello Oldsmobile Parts, theay even make new 350 DX engine blocks!
When you are turbocharging your engine, i think you can go to a lower compression ratio: 1:18.5

Wish I had some clue what was happening there other than the obvious. The pump check out good then? Inconclusive?

cool, subbed, neat to hear that somebody is making aftermarket parts for the olds diesels, wonder if they ever thought to venture into 6.2l/6.5l stuff?

The 350 Diesel is al most ready! We try to start it tonight, yesterday i primed the fuel system without the glowplugs in it. We thought we had bad battery`s, so i put my 6.5 diesel as the backup generator :-) well, it turns out we had a bad starter... so no starting 5,7 liter diesel V8 tonight next week we try again with a good starter... here a video
