Heheheheheheheheh . . .

Lessee . . Magic word(s) "Racing" . . "Race car" . . "Going faster"

Kinda like that first Beer or Potato Chip . . . If a little is good, a whole bunch has gotta be better . . (Betcha can't eat just one)

Is there really anything like an "Old Racing Engine"? Sure there is, if you ain't using it anymore . .

And I know for a fact (just by what you've put up here in the past) that you're not gonna be satisfied with whatever the first pass gives you . . Hell no! "There's another 3 tenths in it someplace!"

Heheheheheheheheheheh . . . Somehow, "Satisfaction" ain't part of "Racing"

And on th'
i love almost anything old. thats why i keep my wife..lol
Don't let her see this post. It could get cold sleepin' outside.

And it ain't fair to compare a SBC with a woman . . A woman will take all the borin' and strokin' you can do, a Small Block Chevy has it's limitations . .

Just sayin'

Ken you do what makes you happy on this one brutha... you have earned it. I am sure you will make it work. I have heard of guys stroking a 283 w/307 crank b4, but I always looked @ 307 as a "challenged" engine in the past like so many others. You will make it rip. Just keep going out to the shop & praying.... everything else will follow. Sorry I haven't been around here much lately. I hope you are feeling well these days. Scoot
