glad to hear you got your health incident under control !
having dealt with health issues of my own for years, i know [somewhat] how you feel.
it does bum one out because you can't, or are not allowed to do what you want, but as long as the interest is there, at least it keeps one's spirits alive.

Glad to hear you’re doing okay.
Sounds like things could have turned out way worse.

Hang in there…… that track will still be there next year. drive

Holy cow, good to hear the heart problems got fixed..... eek

We tend to give the racecars a lot of attention, but sometimes our bodies need it too. And racecars are a LOT easier to fix....

Heal up and get after it next year!

Thankyou everybody. Since I know there is more damage with the 549 crank and bearings, I have decided to go ahead and put the 580 cube crank in it. It will be a better match for the converter, it is ready to go with bearings, sitting on the shelf. All I need is a pair of .060 head gaskets to keep compression at 15.5 or less, warm. I will probably Dyno it as well, when ready. It may make sense, since the 580 motor won't need to spin so high, and the converter should stall maybe 6500, which should be closer to ideal.
