I've got an olds 350 in this 78 cutty, I was gonna scrap the engine for a chevy, cuz I want' buy all the chrome accessories (intake, brakets, valve covers, pulleys, fuel pumps...etc).....But this Olds motor is strong as fuck, it'd be a waste to scrap it. Is there anywhere to buy olds chrome parts??? :dunno:

Try eBay.. When I do a search for Oldsmobile 350, I find al sorts of stuff. Like Chome valve covers- $10, Chrome Oil Pan- $39, Valve and air cover $59, ect... Didn't spend time there much and didn't look at anything close, might try a search for Olds 350... Also, I believe the Olds and Pontiac was the same do a search for Pontiac 350 and Pont 350 as well and see what you find.

The other way would be to send out the parts you want chromed to a shop. Then reinstall them when you get it back.

try summit. i dont know if its summit or summit racing. or you could go to an auto parts store(not auto zone)and ask them if they can get some shit for you, they more than likely can. and youll save on shipping. sometimes they can get shit in the same day or in a couple days.

Look up Mondello first. Im building an Olds 455 engine right now and that company has a lot of stuff. Jegs, Summit and JC Whitney are also good vendors. No matter what anyone says...Olds engines arent that bad. Parts are expensive but pound for pound...they put out more power than a Chevy.
