Al, some things never change. I have had such a problem finding good 1275 cores. My concern is with the late trannys.
I have had so many with bad bearings. Seems Jim wants a complete plug and play as new or better. He does not want
to have to transfer any parts old to new. We never got to price so who knows. Bill has been calling me looking for cores.
Time is coming when I'll have blocks sleeved back to std. I have cranks, rods and heads. Steve (CTR)

PS if anyone is interested in a 998 or 1275 custom engine build get with me.

After talking with an interested party I have decided not to offer at this time. A valve job, hone, rings and bearings, oil pump
chain and cam of choice. Tranny forks, synchros and bearings. Better safe than sorry. Steve (CTR)

Because I have a SPI power unit I removed form a running, driving car. The injection was removed and a carb installed.
It is currently a complete engine with tranny. Missing parts would be intake and exhaust, cooling system ( rad, mounts and hoses )
and dizzy. Steve (CTR)

Steve, I don't know. I did not think about that part of the engine. Why did you ask?
