Trans fluid will float on the drained coolant in little globs. Otherwise, lots of rust and crud in the block. Had a 4.3 "S" Blazer that would drain out brown no matter how much it was flushed.

Once you get the roof skin off, wire wheel the roof rails. Betting you have heavy rust there as well. Treat with a rust converter if saveable.

Those heavy rust spots are paper thin and ready to go through. The bigger ones you could probably poke through with an unbent paper clip. Would be a lot better and easier to replace the whole roof...

Good luck finding one. Actually that is a Buick 350. Shrouds for that engine are rarer than solid gold petrified hen's teeth. Pretty much made of unobtainium.

Probably going to find the moldings are riveted and taped on. Look to see if they have plugs about 5/32 dia in them. If so, riveted, if not probably just taped on. Wood grain is a time consuming...

Did some searching last night. It went to jeepmj_tj in Clemson, SC. His last post on it was several years ago. Have sent a PM, and hope he's still around.
Might have to try over on fsjnet.

Take a look at the block to verify a 401. Molded on it by the motor mount bosses. I've looked at a couple of Z code rigs, and they had had transplants to a 360 and 304.

I'd be happy as a clam with your set-up if that's the preformer manifold and cam. Anything over that is overkill for daily driveability, IMO. But since I'm more trail orientated, I want all the...
