thats sounds really shady. If your vehicle got stolen from his shop then his insurance needs to replace it. If he was operating w/o insurance than you have a legit lawsuit. Even if it was at his house, odds are his homeowner's policy would have to replace it.

How well do you know this "mechanic"?

I smell a rat. If it was stolen he knows who stole it, bottom line.
The 880 is a great block and great to work off of. These came with Vortec heads on them and if it has them that`s all the better. They come with a factory windage tray also. These engines are a generation 1 small block chevy, the only difference between them and the older blocks is it has a 1 piece rear main seal, Vortec heads have a 8 bolt intake pattern instead of the classic 12 and it`s a roller cam engine. Other than that, everything is just about the same. They used a serpentine belt system that used a reverse rotation water pump. Some of these engines are drilled for a mechanical fuel pump and some aren`t.

Well im back at the drawing board im trying to get some ideas and plans on building this shortblock to a complete engine...the block is 95-00...could I use heads off a older chevy 350 engine if so how far back could I go...I also want to run a carb so casting numbers and years for heads that use carbs would be great. Thanks
