Here are the pictures of my new engine. I have a few more things to get for it like valve covers and carburetor.
Now those are FLAT TOP pistons!
Notice the straps on the main caps. The Port-O-Sonic Intake. Need I say more?
The long boxes behind the block have the Edelbrock heads in them.
Here it is, all together.
The engine builder had a few problems with the pushrods. He kept getting ones that were to short. Finally got ones that were .200 longer than stock and they had to to be hand fit!
The heads hang over the front and rear of the block, but are just as long as the stock heads from front/rear bracket bolt mounts.
