  • 383 lt1 overhaul? And info

    Got my stroker out to freshen it up since i bought it a few years ago used and didn't do anything to it just put it in with a new cam and drove it for the last few summers. It got warm once from electric water pump failer and popped a head gasket i think cuz its leaking slightly out of the rear head bold above the oil filter.. still drove fine after i fixed the water pump issue.. even though i didn't drive ut much after i noticed the leak.. just figured i will pull it and rebuilt it i dont know how long agi it was first built ..and noticed abit of performance lag when the motor ran for awhile ..even before the over heating so i know its not because of that.. so now that you know abit of the story.. what in asking is what all should i look for when tearing it down and what all should i look at replacing?? I will tell you abit about the motor ..
