she blew because

my rad return tube totality sheered off and every time my therm opend water would pour on to I-75 un till it got so hot that my spark plug boots caught fire that caught some wires on fire that well cooked my VULCAN'T

May I suggest using punctuation in your posts? At least it lasted this long. Now you can move on to bigger and better things. I'm thinkin that 460 would be a nice engine.

will the 460 fit under there...or course there always is stuff to cut...but I think 5.8 is pushing it, isn't it?

And are there any pics yet?

Well that sucks that your motor blew and caught fire. Glad to hear your not junking it.
Keep us posted.

Hopefully this isn't another rubberized interior thread.
