    7353 is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Engine Bought to replace wore out 327 in 67 El Camino. Engine casting was from a 96 Vortec truck. Be sure to buy appropriate Flexplate, Harmonic Balance and Dipstick Tube. Other items needed were oil filter adapter and sending unit. Came with mechanical fuel pump provision so I was happy about that. I pulled the heads and cam and replaced with TFS 195's / Lunati 262. Runs good, pulls strong.and no leaks! Was able to sell heads for $400. Local machine shop wanted $1100 in labor to rebuild 327 and this was the easiest solution to get the car up and running. Yes I would buy again for pure simplicity.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good low priced engine...runs strong Engine runs great...the only thing I would recommend is that the company provide break in instructions with the engine...I had to google the proper break in instructions for this 350. if I was a newbie I may have just started the engine without proper break in and it would of ruined the cam...the engine needed to be painted again since the coat from the factory was very light and peeling...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good street motor for the price. This engine went in my 1977 Chevy Nova. It's a great street motor for the price. Be sure to purchase the correct oil dipstick! Not all passenger side dipsticks will fit this block! GM 12551154 (Dipstick tube) GM 12551144 (Dipstick) I'm giving this purchase 4 stars because neither customer service nor the webpage mentioned this dipstick issue. Don't be like me and waste money on several passenger side dipstick tubes that don't fit!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great motor for a small vehicle. I put it in a CJ-5 Jeep still running strong. I put it in 13 years ago. It could have a little bit more power. But a jeep are not very heavy.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not impressed with this engine. Purchased this engine to get my truck back on the road after my engine was using too much oil. Engine was shipped quickly and looked pretty good once I received it. After install it developed internal water leak, when pressure checking the radiator. After speaking to JEGS customer service, I was told to contact the vendor for help. Contacted the vendor and explained the problem, they were helpful and after removing both heads, replacing the head gaskets and replacing all the head bolts, the water leak was repaired. So, got it back on the road for a few days and then the lifters developed some noise and the engine was starting to miss. Pulled the valve covers and numerous rocker arm nuts had backed off and would not hold torque, replaced all sixteen nuts and adjusted the valves. I'm now crossing my fingers, there will be no more issues, for the life of my warranty. In hindsight, I wish I would have just rebuilt my engine, instead of purchasing this one.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Rebuild or start with a better crate I have 11 years and over 100K miles on mine and it's reliable, but that's where my compliments end. The appeal of this engine is cheap convenience and that's what got me. For a bit more money, though, you have a 350 rebuilt with much better heads (ex: L31 vortec heads). Terrible cylinder head design and low compression are the crux of this engine's mediocre performance and fuel efficiency. Or if you still want a crate, consider starting with an L31 long block. It's well worth the effort (different intake, flywheel, etc.) and expense as it is more fuel efficient with the stock cam and has way more potential with a simple cam swap.

    Will this motor work in my 1972 Chevy elcamino.

    Asked by: Pwc77
    This will work, but you will need to update a few components as listed on this page - https://www.jegs.com/p/JEGS/JEGS-Small-Block-Chevy-350ci-57L-Crate-Engine/5244244/10002/-1

    Will it work for a 1992 Astro swap ?

    Asked by: Allen65
    If you have the parts to make the swap then this is a good base engine. It will be difficult to put a V8 into the Astro van.

    I want to use this to replace a tired 1962 283 with a Edelbrock 7101 intake, I think it will fit. Is block casting compatible with moving the dipstick to the drivers side?

    Asked by: Gary fl
    Yes, this will fit your application.

    Will this particular engine be a fit for my 1972 GMC C15, it currently has a 350 installed atm. If this will work for me I need the dual intake, a 675cfm carb & headers that will compliment this engine with my truck. Thanks

    Currently have a 88 Monte Carlo SS can this engine be converted to a fuel injected engine. I’m not really worried about having a lot of hp. Just want a engine I can go cross country without a carburetor.

    Asked by: CelticRob
    Yes, you can always use this style EFI system with a carburetor intake manifold - https://www.jegs.com/p/FITech-Fuel-Injection/FiTech-GoStreet-EFI-400-HP-Throttle-Body-Systems/3539375/10002/-1
