I bought the engine from a Friend who was economically impaired at the moment. He sold the RB to me for 100 USD for many reasons and mainly because its only a head and block...no transmission, starter, alternator, injectors, wiring or the intake manifold/plenum. And the block needs oversize pistons (0.020"), the first owner put the turbos from a 26 and did not upgrade the fuel system so the mixture went so lean that 4 pistons have melted crowns, wich scored the cylinder walls. I hope to build it this year, this is getting really expensive for me as im doing a nuts and bolts restoration of the Shell.
Looks like this at this moment:
Already polished some aluminum parts and zinc plated others.
