Also further information. This engine is a stock stock stock engine. It wasnt decked or bored, it wasnt squared, it wasnt even baked and cleaned. Make no mistake about it THIS MOTOR WAS CLEANED. Just not by a machine shop.
I threw a rod in my original engine. This is a block that was given to me in running condition. I put marine heads and cam in it and bearing, ringed @ gasketed the rest. Its to get me bye until I can build the Vortec block thats on the motor stand. Just couldnt stand the thought of going another complete summer without the boat.
