I thought this was a newly built engine that just sat around. Chevy guys used to do that all the time, just happen to have a blue printed and balanced SBC just lying around...
But in this case, it sounds as if the block was built, she had it removed, then it sat around, and then you bought it. So really, you dont know what happened during those first 1000-2000 miles. Just make sure you have the whole block checked out before you start doing anything else, or buying parts.
No, didn't think you were flaming me, haha! No worries, I just wanted to explain my situation better is all. Sorry if I came off touchy!
