    2nd motor,first one started with used block ,205 cast heads.this is a brand new block and new aluminum heads with 205 valves. the block has had a lot of trick machine work done and balanced and blueprinted by Rhynes racing in indiana.should be ready in about 2 weeks to go back on the dyno.hoping for better numbers this time. last picture is the 305 that came out.it was a great dependable motor
