    Just pricing up the rebuild on my 305 SBC, pretty sure I can get a built running motor or even a running car (maybe an MOT failure or something) for less then it's gonna cost to machine out and build this one. Anyone got a running Chevy engine going fairly cheap?

    Hey I need a starter motor for my GMC van. It has staggered pattern, for 350 V8 on a 1991 Vandura. Mine engages with the flywheel but 9 times out of 10 the gear just vibrates rather than turn the ring gear. Assuming there are splines inside the gear, and that mine are shot.
