building a 351c 4v on a budget!

Recommended Posts

Any more input on whether that price for a rebuil snds fair?



I paid $1700 to my machine shop for its SERVICE and they supplied the valves(for some reason he loves to buy the valves).


I supplied everything else. All bearing, all pistons, rings, bolts, etc.


Quite frankly, I don't know that I would ever install used pistons. I would really have to trust who I was buying them from. But new $40x8=$320.


I also don't think I would ever install a used cam. I can get an Isky cam for like $150.


Bottom line, probably reasonable high but not outstanding. I think my $1700 was high, but I know the work is top quality. I measured everything and it is amazing how consistent the numbers are, and how they all fall right in the middle of the specs.
