KUDOS to Roseville and Dave, and glad it worked out as well as it did!

It's funny as I know of quite a few crate small blocks that were amazing motors not sure on the big block wedges but never heard anything about them.

I know three guys who bought factory crate small blocks.... All three drink oil.... I've heard horror stories about crate Hemi's from day one of the release.... The ones built by Cummins have tons of issues.. The more recent ones built by RBRE are supposed to be very good pieces.... Yours is probably one of the last Cummins units.....
