Why do we have to take it so personal when someone gives their "opinion" as to whether or not something is legit? I started out on this site quoting Colvin, saying I had a rare DZ block casting # and really thought I had something. Then it was divulged that it wasn't so rare at all and Colvin kind of jumped the gun. Info comes and changes things. At first I thought screw you guys, you don't know what you're talking about. Then I had a 480 dist. from a 69 DZ engine that was in my 68 and the engine was put in there 35 years ago. The experts said the 480 was a restamp. I could try to justify it all day long as being there before anyone would want or need to restamp something, But the consensous of experts was that it is a restamp, so there is nothing short of me having a video of the dist. being made that is going to change what the experts say, so I have to live with it and am selling it on the basis and price of being a restamp. Am I happy that this was the outcome? No. But I have to accept the reality of things or be bitter and lash out. I would rather not be bitter, so it's a choice of accepting reality. I do not take it personal.
Ed I wish you would reconsider.
