New to the forum & GTO....
Bought a 455 Lemans/GTO clone from a "friend of a friend" only to have the top end starve of oil,seize all 16 lifters, break an intake pushrod, bend an exhaust. Supposedly the engine had 1K miles on a complete rebuild. WRONG. 2 old cratered valves in the heads, rusted pushrods, old cam installed, timing chain worn & found a 1" hole in the block with JB weld in the waterjacket painted over in Pontiac blue. Block is unsalvageable. Yeah....I was taken. Some friend!! Anyway... I'm learning fast & hard about Pontiac. I have a line on a running 350 from a 71 Ventura & need to know how much of my 455 stuff will bolt up to the 350. Intake, exhaust, waterpump, starter etc. Tranny is a 350 TH & is good. Thanks in advance for any & all assistance!
