O.k. I have a question that I think I know the answer for but wanted some advice. I am planning a 350 conversion for my 60 and I am currently looking for a motor. I am really thinking that I will be going with a simple carburated set up. I cannot afford the time and money involved in a fuel injected set up. So here is my stupid question. I have found several long blocks that are from 1999-2001 chevy trucks. These are TPI vortec units with around 40,000 miles on them. If I take the engine in the long block form, use a different manafold and different distributor, can I set it up with a carb and expect it to run?
