thanx Neil,...I will forward this thread/post to him ..& maybe I can sway his business your way ..If it was buy it now for 179.00, probably would be ok.
The old school blaster engines just run hot to start with even in stock form.
The race ones I build, its not uncomon to see temps in the 300 & higher ranges.
Even at those temp they still last a good while, that is if I can keep the kids dads out of the carbs.
Thats a harder job than building the engine.
Those heads a few years back were in the 200.00 dollar & higher range best I can remember.
Would be a little something to add if its cheap enough.
