Well...................................the 326 was a bust! I went down to Iowa today to examine the motor, it was such a nice sunny morning with temps near 60, a gentle breeze rustling the remaining leaves on the trees, and a little black cat to keep me company while I toiled but to no avail.:tongue:Once I removed one of the valve covers I had a bad feeling like, uh-oh! She was pretty rusty and cruddy but to make sure, I removed the spark plugs and looked down the bores, and what did I see? I couldn't really be sure cause of the bright sun but it looked like some bad corrosion in a couple cylinders. I figured I still try to turn the motor so I squirted some lube in the bores and proceeded with my breaker bar to really tighten the crank bolt and that's all! She is froze up good so this one's off the list.

Thanks guys, at least now it's not a mystery whether or not the motor is good.

I've got a '59 Dodge here that the owner told be he spent a lot of money rebuilding the poly engine and trans, and only used the car for 15,000 miles or so before parking it for good. If you want, I'll check to see if it still turns, and remove a valve cover to see what kind of buildup is in there.

Thanks John, unfortunately I think the cost to ship a motor and trans would be prohibitive.
