Thanks for posting that!
I was very concerned about ordering an engine over the internet, but I'm glad I did. When placing my order, Mark asked lots of questions about my intended application for the car, the type of rearend, carb, tranny, and even the elevation of where I live.
He had me call him at least once a week just to keep in contact. I really didn't want to bother him, but he insisted and I'm glad he did. He kept me up to date on the progress and I felt relieved to be included in the info.
The engine came from Colorado in two days from when shipped, it was crated and arrived in excellent shape. I had Mark dyno my engine with a new MDS distributor in it for ease of tranisition when I hooked the moter up. It was uncrated and installed in my car and after the wiring was hooked up with a new new MDS 6AL box, Taylor 10.4mm wires and an Alumitech duel electric fan set-up that engine fired right up and ran cool.
I am VERY IMPRESSED with not only Mark's customer service, but his excellent engine! What a difference from my mostly stock 1971 402ci.
If any members are even thinking about a new engine, at least talk to Mark and get a feel for his knowledge about BB engines. There are others on this forum that build engines too, but for my value = $$, Mark couldn't be beat (in my opinion).
Thanks a lot Mark, you did a great job and I'll recomend you to anyone on this forum, or here in my home town! If anyone wants to PM me about my experience, please feel free to contact me and lets talk
