A tried ’n’ true 350ci small-block V-8 rests in the inner fender-less engine bay. This engine is simple and reliable and features Moroso plug wires, Edelbrock valve covers, a Holley Truck Avenger 670 cfm carb, Patriot headers, and a home-fabbed exhaust with Flowmaster Super 44 mufflers. The ’plant’s cooling system includes the stock radiator, a pair of Flex-A-Lite electric fans, and a Milodon performance water pump. Engine fuel is stored in a Jaz 20-gallon fuel cell and is pumped via a Holley fuel pump through AN-6 braided steel line. Other underhood mods include a Powermaster 160-amp alternator and an Accusump 3-quart Oil Accumulator. Bolted to the engine is a heavily modified TH350 transmission, and it’s ready for hot desert duty with a Flex-A-Lite 8-pass cooler with electric fan.
