Yes, I read them. I believe the 350 is still good. It runs, just like ****. my friend and I are rebuilding it ourselves from the bottom up anyhow, just hopefully don't have to replace alot.

I also want a Hurst Slap Stick shifter, but when I google it there are many options, most of which I do not know if I need. I have a column shifter now, anyone know what I need or where to get it?! I appreciate the help and guidance

I am happy you have decided to step up and rebuild the engine yourself! That's great, just make sure you know what you're doing. Things can go sideways in a hurry. I rebuilt my first engine at 16 (school) and then for real at 18 and it ran great.


Steering column/floor shift

This is an easy fix but it depends on two things, skills/comfort level and budget.

1) If you have the budget then just source a good used/rebuilt or new floor shift column and then find the shifter for your planned driving style/trans options.

2) If you don't have the budget the only difference will be to grind and fill the collar hole where the shift handle was and to drill a small self tap screw or bolt just above the lower shaft support bearing to keep the collar from trying to rotate. I can show pictures of this if need be. (I think I still have them after the computer crashed) You'll have to wait until I get my laptop out of the shop.

Right on.

There are a lot of different brands and within those brands they have a TON of different options, most of which have a "slap stick" or ratcheting style mechanism.
