I'm the buyer.   I've used this site for a very long time and never noticed that there was a forum.   I guess I always went straight to the info links.   I "Discovered" this last night.    I am very glad I did.   The block is going into my L-78 collection, but I hope it can someday be reunited with it's mate.

Congrats!
If you get a chance, I'd be interested in a better picture of the engine pad for this block. :)
