    I would look for a used set of aluminums heads. You'll have that much into getting an old set of GM iron up to par. It's the machine work that will kill you.

    My cousin has some mercrusier 502 heads. Mag check, pressure check good, with valves and no hardware $500. If your interested I could possibly dig up the rest of parts and assemble for a little more.

    That price on the Merlin's is a good deal! That's what I'd be getting. Stock old school BBC shit seems costly to me for what your getting.

    320's runners are way way way to big for a lake motor. Call Rosebush Motorsports in Bay City, Terry usually has a lot of used stuff hanging around.
