olds cutlass supreme 307 talk
I thank that the 307 is one of the best olds cutlass supreme small block motors there was. I am looking for anouther on the rebuild to drop in my 83 olds cutlass supreme.
i lke the cutlass but i love the chevy motors more power an cheaper to rebuild the motors they put in the olds cutlass suck an they all need to be scraped for better use
your right, after many years or olds. ownership i'd say they are/were good motors, even the 403. the deisel ones(350), didn't quite catch on, but when does it ever. that motor was the last carb. motor to be put in a passenger car. not sure where you can get a rebuilt one, shouldn't be too hard though.
I'm pretty new to my cutty but I've known folks to get swaps/replacements from this site and have seen and heard good things. http://www.rebuilt-auto-engines.com/cgi-bin/webc.cgi/crate-engines.html?engine_gid=1372&name=&sid=1AlF2z2i4JZz5DX-21111264524.c5 This is the URL for the varios cutty options they have listed. hope this helps you out :)
thanks for the info. i bought my first cutlass about 25 years ago, it was a '75 S, 2 door with the L-34 Olds.350 in it. i've been wrenching on similiar cars off and on since then. i have like a ton of parts for these years. yeah, its probably true than a person could rebuild a chevy 350 for less money. time is more valuable to me then money, so i go for the olds. 455 motors and swap them into '75/'76 supremes. i can pick up a descent 455 out of a '73/'74 88/98 for $150, after some other parts(trans./x-member/wiring/driveshaft), i'm into for about a grand(not counting the cost to purchase the car). that makes paying to rebuild any 350 hard to justify, and a 455 in any form(hi/higher compression), puts out some power. plus if you run out of motivation along the line, a 455 is easy to sell and get your money out of it.
