Engine Swap

I decided to swap out my 318's for a pair of 350 Chevy's. Has anyone else done this in a 28 express?

Re: electronics upgrade

Re: Reverse rotation?

Re: One engine cruising (dragging prop)

It is best to put it in gear. If not, the tranny turns the whole time and there is no water going through the cooler.
