Customer dropped off a build I did about five years ago as a "deposit" on a new project.
I think that with a cam change and some new top rings this will become my alternate...

I have hurt my lower back lifting these heavy MEL heads! I don't understand how something with so thin sections and port walls could be so heavy. What is really amazing is how fast August and September fly by if you have an EMC entry.... Kaase

And through all this just think of all the other prospective "Engine Masters" that are not in a financial position to even think about trying to enter.

Just to see if I could do it, one year almost every part of my "Engine Masters" entry was purchased used at swap meets or fabricated.

It doesn't take a lot of money to finish in the middle of the pack if you know what you are doing.
Readers don't usually recognize any of this but, people there, do.

Most people forgot or never knew how to make or re-purpose stuff because all they have ever done is buy it.

Better get with it Barry. You need to quit calling it an "Alternate Engine"
Your in the program because we have had one drop out.
You will receive an Official notification soon.
Looking forward to seeing you there.

Has there been a Official Sponsor List released so we know who to use for contingency? I still have some items to buy and would prefer to use those businesses! :D
