88 Waggy stock 360 rebuild

I am going to be rebuilding my stock 360 this summer. Can anyone suggest a good kit or should I try and piece one together?

How much of a rebuild? Are you going to have the cylinders bored and fit new pistons? I suggest you talk to your machine shop about where to source the parts. They may be able to get the parts you need at competitive prices, and they will need the pistons when they bore the block. You should also hold off buying any parts until the block has been cleaned, inspected and measured. The condition of the bores will determine which pistons you need.

You can get basic stuff like performance parts and gasket sets. Cam, timing set, seals, etc.
And you can get prices for pistons to formulate a budget.


But wait until you have the block inspected before you get pistons and bearings.
