There's a box labeled "QUOTE" that is to the right of the date of their post. Click it and it will include the quote in the reply.

Don't forget to highlight and copy the txt first,  the quote icon looks like a txt balloon.

I agree with Stingr69, throw it in the trash. I would use a 327 small journal block and a 283 steel crank. 2 bolt main will be fine up to about 400hp if you build it right.

The rivets are definitely wrong, looks like standard pop rivets.

I used DP-90 on the Car and the Frame parts then sprayed the correct gloss over that using PPG urethane products.

The coating/paint will make all the difference in the world down the road. Make sure you use some of the good ceramic coatings that are available and get the right gloss as well.

Also check around the bottom frame rails near the spring holes for stress cracks. Very common.

Really depends on if its just a driver or are you restoring the car....
Surface rust can be converted to oxide with products like 'Rust Oleum Rust Restorer', you can get it at home depot. If you are restoring the car then I would go the sand blast route.

I just got the new 630 model and it is definitely not a thumper but works well so far. I love the fact that is has a USB port where I can plug in my Thumb Drive with thousands of songs on it. It lets you select folders and displays all the Tag info from the MP3 files. It has Amp outputs if you want a thumper.
