Recommended Posts

Hi, just me again. Do they make a rebuild book for the Buick v8, specifically the 350? I cant imagine they wouldn't, but who knows. One of those "hop-up" books to help guide you in the rebuild process. I checked Amazon.com and didn't find anything. Any leads would be great. Thanks.<P>Chad

I'm not sure when, but I rember seeing a 350 Buick buildiup in CarCraft or Popular Hot Rodding or Hod Rod. You can easily access their archives on their websites. Hope this helps.

I have a copy of that article if anyone wants it it's in jpeg format and I can e-mail it to you. The only book I know of that is of any help is " Guide to Buick performance engines" By Steven L Dove. Isbn # 0-9621059-8-8 available at these fine places below and Amazon.com. <P> <A HREF="http://www.taperformance.com/" TARGET=_blank>http://www.taperformance.com/</A> <BR> <A HREF="http://members.aol.com/ideapage/poston/index.html" TARGET=_blank>http://members.aol.com/ideapage/poston/index.html</A> <BR> <A HREF="http://www.paeenterprises.com/index.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.paeenterprises.com/index.html</A><P>[ 05-07-2001: Message edited by: gm boat owner ]<p>[ 05-07-2001: Message edited by: gm boat owner ]

Are you talking tech as in blueprinting or as in parts selection?<P>I built my 350 as follows:<P>Poston .030 10.25:1 pistons<BR>Poston .480/.495 lift split duration cam<BR>T/A Performance intake<BR>800 CFM mechanical secondary Q-Jet. Yes, they exist. I use BB rods and a K or L hanger on the secondaries.<BR>Hooker SuperComp headers<BR>Competition Cams rockers and shafts<BR>Melling Hi-Vol oil pump<BR>Accell Supercoil on a 75 HEI<BR>MSD 6AL with 5200 RPM rev-limiter<BR>Holley Blue pump regulated to 5-1/2 PSI<P><BR>That's about it. Nothing special was done to the block to prep it. It's got the original block and heads. It'll run 13's all day and 12's on AV-GAS.<P>Thing is, I don't even know if half of these parts are available anymore. I still have the car the engine is in, and it still thump-thump-thumps like a big block.<P>Good luck,<P>-pb

I believe you are looking for an (instructional) book that is much like the "How to Build your Small/Big Block Chevy/Ford" books. You won't find one for Buick. The previous posts mention the magazine article(s); The article will certainly help, but I don't think it will have all the detail you will need/want to tackle a complete tear-down and re-build. I made an inquirey on this site some time ago regarding "small block" Buick(s). In my opinion, the uncontested "Champion" for small cube Buicks is a fellow named "JIMMIEB". He has answered many questions We have had on this site regarding:215/225/300/340 & 350 Buicks. Go into the "search" tab and enter 340 or 350 and see what comes up. Whatever you do, don't ask about Chevy 350! shocked.gif" border="0cool.gif" border="0 Good luck!
