Jackie brought the engine back to the shop after a complete makeover. It was difficult to budge into the back of his new Galaxy Minivan. Of course we had to use a crane since the bigblock weighs more than 250 kilogramms. That is without the exhaust maifolds, waterpump, starter, carb and a few other add-ons.
A few of those parts will still need to be mounted on the block before it can be squezed into the engine bay - there's not much room to move afterwards.
