Bought a 6.0 LQ4 block a few weeks ago


Torn down (block needs machining and new rings)
Probably going to bore it to a 370 and go with that

I notice that you have scattered sockets like me. There really should be a garage maid service we can call after tinkering.

ehhh grind them off you'll be ok. they probably didnt want to go through the extra effort of putting them on with springs in the way?

I'm thinking they had a SBC in it at some point in time since those are SBC moutns.

They must've swapped the Poncho in when they got rid of it and thats what the figured to do to make the Poncho work with the SBC moutns.


My guess atleast.

Also smoothed some rough areas on the bumper as well

wow what a sweet deal for only 350 bucks it sounds like you are turning her into a beast of a machine.  Keep up with the photos, she looks good.

Ugh this spot. Everytime I look at it and try to figure out a way to repair it and blend it with the original body lines it just discourages me lol



Hell I have a rocker thats 75% gone on the other side and it doesnt get me down like this spot does. rofl
