Engine Tanny Inquiry..............

Alright, I have a 84 camaro with a 350 from god knows where. If I replace it with another 350, from a different kind of car and different model, will I need a new tranny to work with the new engine. And in turn will I need to get new parts, i.e. heads, or will the ones I have fit any 350. Thanks.

Wow, I'm so glad you decided to not only post this in two forums, but also misspell the same word in the title of both of them.

Well if you don't know what type of 350 you have, and you certainly don't say what type of 350 you want to use, how exactly do you expect someone to answer your question.

I feel safe in assuming that the engine in the car is an SBC but... Buick, Oldsmobile and Pontiac all made 350's also. Basically the only similarity is that all four engines were produced by GM.

So the best answer to your question is maybe... or maybe not. Who the hell knows, or can figure it out with all the useful information you've supplied?

Widow, you don't really expect someone who asks a question like that to know how to spell, do ya?

As I said I don't know what model/year the engine I have in here now , but what if both engines were made by GM. Would the parts be interchangable then?

Did you read my post above or are you really that dumb? Maybe or maybe not! I still don't know what type of "350's" they are. Read this at least 10 times before responding.

If you would like a real answer I'll be happy to help but please provide some real, useful information.

If you don't know what you have, the first thing to do is to figure it out. Look over the engine and get all the numbers off it you can. Even something as simple as firing order can help to determine what engine you have.

After you get all the numbers off it, then start looking through casting books to determine what you have. You may have to look though a couple of books to finally determine what you have.

You may also get lucky on the internet by making some guesses as to what you have, looking up casting numbers specifically for your guess, and seeing if your numbers match what you find.

No, it's not easy. But investigation work rarely is. Good luck.
