i will if i have to---there's no real "problem" there. But somehow i just can't shake wanting to use a mechanical pump. (i want to stay with carbs indefinitely).
A certain 1-pc block---not nessesarily the ones listed about is used with the HT383 and zz383 engines and they can use a mechanical pump. So, i am hoping there is a way to get a roller ready block AND have the fuel pump pushrod provision.
