well, I just got a new job.... making pretty decent money
I'd like to get a beater bird and keep mine in the garage all winter while I get parts for a PI swap, 4.30's, driveshaft, TC.
Who knows...I still have a DOHC sitting around, but I dont wanna put in a stock aluminum block. I'd rather wait til I have serious money and use the block what it's meant for...real power.

Save your money and do the dohc engine. If I had to do it over that's what I would go with.

I have to tear my upper end apart now to get it running right again. Hopefully adding Mechanical gauges, and if I can get the money together No2.

Whats going on with your upper end?
Sound's like a bad rocker arm, but I talked with the guy that did my block and he said to check the lifters first.

Nope, I just top off the fluids, Have at least 3/4 of a tank of gas and disconnect the battery. Been doing this for years. While I was going through my long divorce I had her parked away for two years and I had to install a new battery and disconnected the coil wire so I could crank the motor without starting it. This was to get some oil flowing. Even the gas held up. Two years is not a wise thing to do but it was how it turned out.
