RIP panelvan

last night my panelvan died, a bolt dropped thru the carby and destroyed number 3 piston, only 48 hours after she was making 177.6 rwkw, so as a quick fix my bro has a spare 302 stocker kicking around which will be the donor motor, till i find or build a tuff bottom end, the next bottom end package should be making over 200 rwkw then i can go back to whooping holden ass on the street

The damage :

I am spewing I wanted to see what this thing would run on the 1/4.

Ah well if the $ are available and depending on options. I'll help build up a nice 351. Since most of the important parts survived.

and the good news is i have sourced a good bottom end for the right price, and if all goes well i should skip the 13 second bracket and hopefully go straight into the 12's
