Engine is back hopefully this week sometime. I need to call Dad and get this back on the road. Going forged pistons. I plan on running a new 14g I have sitting here. With my rebuilt trans and lightened stock flywheel. I have replaced almost everything on the suspension and drivetrain, and brakes. I need to install a relay rod and rear wheel bearings and it should be ready for fun!............and the paint.

Block looks good except for the crank needed to be reground, and polished.  Hopefully back this week sometime.
