Wow, can't believe it stayed together like that.

12 months, damn he's not a GN secret I guess but quality in this field is essential.

Lonnie has some fast TSM cars and if you're going to ship it anyways it doesn't matter where. Lonnie Diers is in Ohio and can hook up your motor and tranny while it's out. :eek: :cool:

That does suck Jim! Let me know if you need me or any others to be on the lookout for a nice block. The spare one I gave you with the car is a 109 block but it's a '85 and they are weaker than the 86-87 blocks.

Jim my buddy here has a spare block sitting in his garage! I think it is .040 over though. Not sure if that will work for you or not.

If not, contact this guy, He is a very reputable guy and has standard bore blocks..>
