Re: 400 sbc
When I bought the car, ($1000) the previous owner did get it running but when I got it back to the shop, after taking it off the flatbed, the starter was hanging. I tried tightening the bolts, but they dont really tighten.
Threads were stripped, I have a helicoil in it now, and the bolts tighten up to a point, but I never took the motor out of the car to work on it properly.
The engine has been in my car since I bought it in 99. I havent put any miles on it yet, just quarters, paint, and an interior. I am doing a BBC now which will go in with the M22 I also have.
It is an early 400, if I remember 73 or 74. I also for some reason think its out of a Monza...dunno.
