How did we ever survive without Ebay? Where would the junk go?

Also notice there are a lot of bids on that piece. Here's an interesting one too.

I may be showing ignorance, this may be something everybody knows about and I just have been living in my own world, but what the heck is relieving and centering the oil passages? Sounds pretty amazing, must be worth at least 50 hp. Wonder if he knows you only align bore a block if you're putting caps on it that don't line up close enough to hone. Cleaned up with a stock bore too, only got .015" clearance, should run fine... just kidding...

MAN, that GEM is only 25 miles south of me, I'd better run down and snatch it up before someone else buys it :!:

That is not a bad deal at all, if it's a standard bore C9VE-B block (auction text says "1969 block"). I'd certainly take it if I lived closer. Just needs a little prep, that's all.

Heads before:


Heads after:


You can do anything with a properly equipped machine shop and someone who knows how to properly work the equipment.
