What temperature should a 350 chevvy be running at,as i know that they do run at quite a temperature also the engine is blown,just a bit worried about any overheating that may occur!

Just come in from a couple of hour run, showed roughly a steady 90 degrees all the way. Can rise slightly in traffic but not a great deal.
Hope this helps.

Anywhere 90 to 110 'C should be fine.

It runs quite (too?) cool in the Cobra but when I had the same engine in another body it used to run consistently in the 100-110 range in traffic without any obvious ill-effects.

mine is stroked and runs fine at a constant 90 degrees - recommend use of oil cooler for hot weather conditions as this figure can soon escalate when in traffic or on track days
