i will be going through them also. i took the bolts out in steps to help keep from bending them but i will see what i find. i had a 62 dynamic 88 and they were pretty bad in the 394.
i did find out that the #2 cylinder is bad. looks like there was rust in it at some point in time. the car wasn’t smoking but i don’t see any way around having it bored. that stinks. what do you recommend for pistons and what do they run?
