    I have a Gen VI 502 and I want a rebuild kit. My local auto parts store had no listing for such a thing.
    If you know where to get one please list it here, thanks.

    Is it standard bore? I am just wrapping up my rebuild of my standard bore 502. A buddy of mine was doing most of the shopping for me but I know that the rings were expensive and the gasket set actually was for a marine application. The stuff is not as common as 454's Let me know if you need specific details to find rebuild parts.

    You need to call Summit. Not everything they have is listed online or in the catalog.

    Once again thanks for the advice and help. I would like to get some more information from bayou blazer such as motor mounts, and headers.
    Mine is still a standard bore 502 and it was a marine motor to begin with. My first problem when shopping is they ask me what is came out of, i never saw it in anything. The fuel injection system is missing so i need a intake and carb set up, i have a dual quad with 12 inch risers but i think that is not my best choice for low end torque. The cam is 450 hp with 550 torque, is this a good choice? I had considered reusing the rings since the motor only had 100 hours on it when it was tore down. There are not even marks on the cylinder walls; however i am still leary of reusing them.
    Basically i need gaskets, bearings, exhaust, intake, distributor, and brackets for mounting the alternator and air conditioning (which i really need/want to keep). I have rectangular port heads that I would like to put roller rockers on to help with the roller cam. Right now i got about $1000 in part money to work with.

    I have tested this several times. They have lots of parts they don't list.

    I think some of the GM cab&chasis trucks had 502's in them. I have seen a couple of tow trucks with that engine.

    What was the reason you tore it down?

    I did not tear it down, i got it that way. The engine was in good running condition at the time or so i am told.
