Well, I finally got a block. Bought from a guy on craigslist for$50 . It has ~220k miles on it. It doesn't look like much now, but after the rebuild it will be as good as new. ARP rod bolts, and Clevite P-Series (Mahle) rod bearings came in this week. Waiting on my Deeves piston rings, "made from a special swedish alloy" lol, which should be here on Wednesday. I'll be dropping off the rods at the Machine shop on Monday. Looks Like I'll be reassembling the motor Thursday, and will hopefully be in the car this weekend.
