    I tried to call, but got no answer. I may have a lead on a 383 shortblock if that would help. or maybe a 454 that needs to be put back together. let me know.

    In your K5?

    No need to bore the cylinders any mroe than they all ready are. Just have them honed down unless there is major pitting in the cylinder wall. I thought I was going to have to have the cylinders bored on the K10 but a good hone cleaned them up really well.

    Its gonna have to be bored there is major pitting from the water that leaked into the cylinder. I can use the pistons from the old engine if I bore the new engine...
