Chevy 350 Motors for Automobiles and Marine Engines
Chevrolet is undoubtedly the first choice of worldwide automobile customers when it comes to the purchase of car, SUV, truck, marine engines, vans or even hybrid modeled cars. Many hybrid models are also released by Chevrolet Motors in the year 2012. Frankly my preference is a shiny new Chevy Equinox, Suburban, Avalanche or even a Cruze. Well evidently the customers have the luxury of choosing any Chevy vehicle which suits my budget and requirement.
Moving onto Chevy 350 motors, they are used in many automobiles like cars, trucks and even recreational vehicles. Ever since it was introduced into Chevy Camaro in 1967, it became the widely used small block in many Chevy engines. Today the General Motors use its invention in every machine of its partner automobile models like GMC and Buick. The first preference for a small block V8 was not Chevy 350 earlier but gradually it became popular.
As time passed by, General Motors manufactured many derived instruments of Chevy 350 motor for its other brands with Saturn being an exception to this. But nothing seems to hold the number 1 position than this motor. Even the used and rebuilt Chevy engines stand in Top 10 List of most wanted spare parts in the market today.
Today the Chevy 350 is also available as a spare or replacement part also. There are not many technical problems encountered by Chevy 350 owners. Yet the motor definitely requires frequent maintenance and servicing of it. Even the used engines serve the new models well but for some over-heating problems. Contrary to this, there were complaints that the engine delay starts in winter. Overcoming these minor problems, Chevy 350 still happens to be the favorite of automobile owners.
There is a high demand for these Chevy 350 engines in the marine machinery as well. There were comparisons of this product with Ford 289 Engine. But Ford Motors couldn’t beat the popularity of this one for sure. The success of this machine is owed to its design and the fuel efficiency it provides to the cars. It is due to this reason that Chevy 350 motor is also called 5.7 liter engine. The Chevy ZZ4 is acting as the replacement for its original motor and is the latest model of the same. It yields a horsepower of 355 at the rate of 5,250 RPM.
One can purchase any used or new products of Chevy 350 and its derivatives from various websites today. The company’s official web store does not provide any spare parts or Chevy engines unfortunately. There are other private and government owned vendors/dealers from whose websites Chevy machines and engines are available at very reasonable prices.
