I don't know about the crank. I don't know what the RPM limit usually is on a cast crank.

It doesn't look like a set of L-78 +40 pistons is going to be easy to come up with

May take a special order

For now I think I'm going with my 2-bolt engine with factory steel crank and factory L-78 pistons
Will decide on the other engine later

The engine is coming alone fine .. I will get the oil pump and oil pan back on tomorrow, and with some luck (and if my back stays with me), maybe the cylinder heads.
Hope to get it back in the car soon .... wish me luck

I do have the oil pump, oil pan, and both heads back on the engine. I need to take the steering column out to replace the firewall seal that goes around the column. Right now I have a red rag that someone put there.....lol
After that I will try and get the engine in the car.

I have been working on the steering column and have it just about ready to go back in. Should have that done by early next week.
After that the engine
