 Great work, looks like new. I cant remember how did the motor run when you took it out?

Good question , i never heard it run , i never bothered to mess with it because i knew i was going to go through it and besides the carburetor and wiring were pretty much disintegrated .

 I'm going to have it broken down for inspection and i hope theres more good than bad an ugly . I'm hoping just minor stuff like cleaning out holes bearings and seals/gaskets who knows ? Gil

Love the easy access to the plugs on those, with that exhaust. Hope its salvageable. Might not be the best option for breathing however?

The good the not so good and the ugly . The good the crank will only need .010 under grind , the  is just your original run of the mill 1970 455 that hasn't been taken apart and doesn't have any cracks yea ! The not so good is hole number three has some pitting from it sitting for so many years , the machinist thinks a .060 bore will remove them if not it will have to be sleeved  and the block decked "cha ching" . The ugly , the heads are your run of the mill 2.00 intake nothing special heads that need a complete overhaul  that have already been worked on as in knurled guides  and they're warped to boot . I'm going to focus on getting the block done with new forged pistons (gonna try to get at least 9 to 1 )  , forged rods , a more aggressive cam and lifters  . The next thing will be aluminum heads with 2.075 intakes the adjustable rockers . I'm kicking myself in the arse for selling my little 160 .
