    He thinks it's cool seein how mine was a 68. And yeah, it's very simple. Even though it's a 350, and that's what he's used to seeing in my '86, I'm still impressed with how little there is on it!

    yeah, that was my next thought...how far down the threads go. Good chance it's bottom'd out. Guess that's where I went wrong. Didn't know it had hit the end of the road before I kept going. And yes,...
