Is it worth it? I think.... I have everything I bought this truck with several boxes of parts. You all know what I talking about. rebuild kits seem pretty pricey.

What I know I have:
Head rebuilt with chevy valve train, new valves, dual springs, seals etc. never used

old rocker assembly feels a bit tight.
block was cooked but needs it again
old POS looking cam and gear
radiator Looks ok I would have it recored for larger four core
pumps oil with pickup (looks ugly) fuel, and H20
thermo housing
crankshaft needs truning / polishing as it has some surface rust.
bell housing,fly wheel and clutch assoc. linkage
DUI distrub./HEI; looks pretty new.
motor mounts - solid no rubber????
intake and exhaust manifold
NO CARB
misc sheet metal for carb intake and fan housing(no fan)
bucket full of bolts to God know what.

Well guys what do you think??
Should I try and do this thing or part out the good stuff and do a SBC with a stroke kit?

I dont like any SBC kits but the aussie version or the ranger split deal
both are about 1500.00 with no motor. but hey sbc are a dime a dozen.

Thanks Kenn

well a SBC will give you some more horses under the hood if you want that, but the conversion can be costly. Fuel issues will be a problem as the SBC is known to be a fuel eater.

<insert shameless plug here> I'm selling a 2F in this section. Contact me if you're interested.
