Just an additional comment.
When I bought the 70 Malibu conv in 98, it still had its ORIGINAL 307, which was VERY tired. I promptly built a SB400 and replaced the 307 and sold it.
Today, I REALLY, REALLY regret doing that!!!
I wish I had rebuilt the 307 with a .060 bore and stroked it with a 350 crank (or, MAYBE, MAYBE with a 400 crank). But too late now. I would have then built is like a very nice 350---------------AND THE CAR WOULD STILL HAVE IT'S ORIGINAL, NUMBERS MATCHING ENGINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was a factory 3sp on the column and I replaced it with a Muncie. I often think maybe I should have searched around for a HD 3sp to replace the original Saginaw 3sp. And instead of swapping the original 10bolt 3.08 non-posi with a 12bolt posi, just added an Eaton posi unit. Oh well, it's water under the bridge now.
