Thanks for the info on how to block the water jacket on the block. You mention in your answer that you also bore an additional hole in the heads. Do you use a head gasket for the later style block and use it to locate the 1/4" hole for the heads? I like the generator offset you are using. Never did like the offsets that bolt to the heads. Who supplies that offset? One last question about the steering setup. I see you are using cross steering. What type of gearbox?
