1986 toyota landcruiser - auto box - quick chance setup kit for valve plate

Dear Sir,

My 1986 landcruiser have been changed to accomodate a chev 350 V8, with various other convertions. the 350 is driving through the original auto box, no problem but my top speed is not great at all. (100 - 120 km per hour MAX)
i think that the bottleneck is at the box, the motor is 100%. i have ample pull away power but no top end (Only looking for another 30 - 40 odd km per hour) - coulod you please assist?

regards
Reinier Fourie

Fitting an overdrive auto or a 5speed manual transmission will give a little more top end ......or..... fit larger tyres. V8 should have enough torque to cope well at lower speeds.

350 chev engine number 10054727. What year and horse power? Thank you


That is a '89 & up model, I believe it is a 2-bolt. HP is not determined by this number It could be from about 165 to 295. You can pump it up, but don't go too far if it is a 2-bolt.

With any luck...
This years tax time repair could just be that leaky exhaust (Rusty muffler or plugged CATALYTIC CONVERTER)..

Annual repair is pretty good... (better than most)
but the TWO you don't want to put off

Brakes & Exhaust (ignoring could be fatal).

Just know your prices before going to the
local friendly EXHAUST SHOP.

Why does my 86 chev 350 smoke oil out exaust only sometimes


on a truck this old, I would say that the rings are worn, and the valves are leaking, maybe.

As it warms up the dynamics may change, with different driving and weather conditions making the system smoke or not smoke.
