been working on getting this guy together, we'll see how much boost it can handle before it pops since its only a cast piston motor. Ended up having an issue getting pushrods for almost two months, so that paused my progress. That and welding the turbo drain in a bad spot, had to cut it off to redo this weekend.
Is that the brown car in the pic, behind the motor? You had a 76 350 with the T56 correct? Do tell us all the details.been working on getting this guy together, we'll see how much boost it can handle before it pops since its only a cast piston motor.

Did you buy it with those Mondollar Procomp heads? I would do some measuring since those are probably out of box heads which have questionable valves and hardware. I would assume that the thieves from Pasco Robles just buy them complete and stamp Mondello on them. Benard actually cares about his family legacy and builds them with better parts.
Sweet, sounds you have it under control. I assume those are 24cc cast replacement pistons? How much boost are you running?
So you have a 4 barrel Edelbrock carb on an adapter, on the stock 260 2 barrel manifold? All 260 had factory Dualjet 2 barrel carbs, so if it is 4 barrel manifold, someone put it on.View attachment 799
Noobie here. Was on this site for a while about 10 years ago. Then life got in the way. This car sat for 8 years. Around Sept I started going through it again. I'll thread the history somewhere here, but for now, The topic is "what I did today" .
That's an Edelbrock 1405 on a slightly modified adapter plate. It developed a vacuum leak, apparently. I did a short rebuild but I shouldn't have disturbed Mickey Mouse setup from adapter to base. I backfired today and the plate blew loose so I have to re-tap the 4 aluminum threads on the manifold. And replace that thick base plate gasket. Oh well.
I know the 4BBL on the 260 could be considered somewhat comical. In 2008 I was driving over multiple mountains to school and the Rochester just wasn't cutting it. Installed, MPG fell but at least I was no longer frustrating people behind me uphill. Worked really well back then. I had the 4BBL manifold back then but opted for the adapter rather than the offset port issue you get from the other manifold. Maybe I'll reconsider that . I dunno.
