G'day, I would love to get my hands on another 409. I had a block freshly hot tanked at the machine shop back in 1997 when we had our major flood. The machine shop was next to a dry cleaner. All the nasty solvents from the dr cleaner flowed through the machine shop and my block grew fuzz in 10 days. Ended up going to scrap. I have a lead on another that I have failed to follow up on. My high school Physics teacher from 1974 decided that he was going to hoard 283, 327, and 409 engines. He bought all my left over stuff. I should approach him about scoring a complete passenger car 409 before it gets too late. Maybe he will want to part with a bunch of the old stuff.
