Hi all, I purchased this 302 back in 2014, the previous owner had it disassembled and stored in plastic containers. The story he told me is that the person he got it from had it in a sand drag jeep. That person had recently rebuilt the engine and had it running and idling and it just quit/locked up and it was pulled and sat until it was purchased by the guy I got it from. He ironically couldn't remember the name of the person or where he got it from, just that little bit of information. I can believe that it did sit for a long time with water in some of the cylinders because there's a considerable amount of damage in some the cylinders. Whether or not it was running and locked up I don't know, it may have been a blown head gasket or a crack. Here's some links to my photobucket albums that do a great deal more explaining than I can on my break. http://s571.photobucket.com/user/ryan_sutcliffe1/library/?sort=3&page=1 http://s571.photobucket.com/user/ryan_sutcliffe1/library/302 Chevy?sort=3&page=1 I did try to put a description with most of the pictures in the larger album as far as what and where it was but I ran out of steam this past weekend. There isn't anything that's jaw dropping but it's neat. I will try to get some more detailed info on here later. Thanks for looking.
