I've put together a blown engine last year and saved money - the crank was just re-ground and I purchased 2 new rods and pistons. since the assembly was previously balanced all I had to do was weight match the rods to the other "good" 6 rods and same with the pistons. Had about $300 more than a simple refresh in it when it was all done - a lot cheaper than a complete engine...

I'm still looking for a pair of KB 182 pistons at .020 to repair my 377...

Have you indentified what caused the failure in these motors? I would do that before trying to piece them together. And is the Lunati roller shot or you just want to get rid of it.

The cam is a Lunati 50103, I'm not sure on the brand of lifters or springs. They were all run together. PM me an offer, I have had a couple of people interested.

Thanks.
