sweet! id love to go for a cruise in the old girl!
i live about 300 meters from exibition park, which is good!
if you wouldnt mind, id like it if you came around one day and checked out my 400, and see how its coming along.
its got fully balanced, crank, rods, and pistons, bored 40 tho, flat tops, polished oil gully, tappered holes, edelbrock manifold, yadda yadda yadda, so im hoping when its all together it should make some decent power, all i need to buy to finish it is a gasket kit and a camshaft and valve springs.
ps, what your number pink bits? i will be cruising around in my yellow s pack falcon so it would be good to catch up.

yeah the yellow s pack will be receiving the 400, just need to build it lol! i finally found myself a bellhousing too! got one from canada for 50 bucks, inlcuding the fork, etc, so im chearin about that, at the moment my XE is got a basically stock 302 in it, with around 85 tho ks on it, so its quite reliable so far....
the other day i read somewhere, that i might need to machine the front of my block to fit my gear drive as the larger journals interfear with the idler gears? has anyone heard anything about this for the 351m/ 400 engines?
