Finally got my engine block off the garage floor,and onto an engine stand.
My current crop of projects all have running motor's at the moment.
Time to build a big block.:)
Starting here with nothing but a bare block and some old cam bearings.
Everything will be new except the crank and maybe the 049 heads.
I'm currently thinking of going with a re ground forged crank.
I believe in the OLD GM>

Thanks guys.
The pics take a while to load,and sometimes problems prevent them from working correctly,I'd rather have one photo fail,rather than multiple ones.
I intend to have the block thermally cleaned eventually,just no need at the moment,until I have the major engine parts on hand.
The Engine work will be performed at Federated auto in Painesville Ohio.
I'm guessing they will need all the internals to balance everything.
In no hurry for the build,cost is a main concern.
Waiting and buying each piece at the best possible price really adds up,once you add up the savings each step of the way.
