Re: Hydrolocked hemi what should I do?
I follwed the link to the Arrington short block listed at $5,000. At five grand, isn't the OP a long long way from done? Doesn't he need a lot of forged bits in the top end to go with all the boom in the lower half? Looking further on Arrington, that same engine completely built lists for $15,000. How does that fit into ten grand?
It's nice to dream with other people's money, but if the OP has access to ten grand and that's it, he should go to the junk yard and get a serviceable motor and keep dreaming of hot rods. Better yet, he can start rebuilding his old motor one bit at a time, while he drives around in a WORKING automobile.
