I've got an 86 Chevy C10 pickup. The engine has been replaced with what I have been told is a "354". Most of the work I've done on cars has been via a Haynes manuel. But, because I'm dealing with a different engine, I don't know where to find information on torque specs, how to's etc.
I'm not a pro, but I have decent tools and some experience. I know a mechanic who can help me through the tough parts, but I want to be able to do some of the more basic stuff on my own. Can I buy a hayne's for this type of engine, if yes how do I figure out which one to buy? Or, what else can I do?
I found the numbers "14101074" stamped in the back center of the engine, just behind the carburetor. According to several online sources this engine casting number is for a 305 engine belonging to an 82-92 Camaro. Considering it has TPI,that puts it between 87 - 92.
