YES, parts can be bought nearly anywhere. BUT, if you rebuild it wiht new parts and it never goes to a machinist to freshen the worn areas, it will have the same or worse problems after the rebuild.

SO, it needs to be disassembled, INSPECTED by a competant machinist, and then parts can be bought.

+1 If it needs machine work and it is not done then you are just wasting your money.

Northern auto parts has reasonably priced rebuild kits for the chevy 350.

i agree.    if she smokes, its time to visit a machine shop.     does it smoke on start up or when you put the fun pedal down?
