    Good score on the motor! I am still keeping an eye out for some 4" stainless tube. If you needed 2 1/2 or 3" there is lots laying around. Just my luck I guess, if I needed 3" there would be 4" laying around. LOL

    Thank you , I think I am just going to use some steel to fab it and coat it till I find a piece of stainless.

    401 down to the block 0.040 over and in good shape for a rare vintage engine.
