Re: Motor Parts

Thanks for the "support" I think. Yes it is all part of it. This block was given to me already prepped so I was a little disconnected (at least that is the story I'm sticking to). I have to assume it is an early 400 block as the starter didn't have 2 mounting sets and now the lower holes. But it is ...

Re: Motor Parts

As the old saying goes. "What is wrong with these pictures"? The alternator was the last part left to bolt on however as the pictures show no holes.

Re: Motor Parts

Re: Some days you are the windshield...

I'm pretty sure if you ask them they can do a "spray out" for you. It's where they mix a small amount of paint and spray a 5x9 card so you can see the color in the sun.
