    In search of another 440 block...
    This is the race motor with 50 passes before it spun a rod bearing.
    My old GTX motor is still safe and in my car now.
    It never ends...

                  Are you using a stutter box / 2-step on the starting line?

                              you got that right :BangHead::BangHead::BangHead::BangHead:

                              sorry to see & hear that Bob...

                              glad you found something... FREE

                              maybe time to save up for an 'Aftermarket Block'
                              maybe RacingJunk.com, buy someone's stalled out project
                              let them take the financial hit

                              be done with it...

                              Good luck
