Thanks Les. Nice looking ride. We are just rebuilding the 231 for now.
I think the swap will come later if he wants to.

Need some more help with the 231.
I am looking for the torque specs for the 231. Hate to go out and buy a chilton for just this one job.
I am sending the connecting rods to a local machine shop for dressing. Can't find them anywhere.
TA performance was last hope for a set of remans. They did not have any in stock to rebuild.

Anyway, Ideas on the specs all in one spot?

It is all stripped down to the block today. Cleaning, degreasing and painting starting tomorrow.
Reassemble will start as soon as the new cam, lifters and intake Shield\gasket arrives.

thanks for the help.
Doc Bill
