Mike, use crazy glue. Remember the ads from when we were kids? You can stick a hard hat to an I-beam and then a dude can hang from it!

Wait a second - that's what Google and YouTube are for!

got back from hospital about an hour ago(2 and a half days). all went well , foot looks straighter. gotta stay off it for 6 weeks then i get a walking boot for another 6 to 10 weeks, then some physio stuff. starting to see the finish line. and right now i have two traction bars attached to my foot, kind of looks like harley exaust pipes that stick up past the sissy bar. :mrgreen: see if i can get a pic.

Hope all is well Mike.
So been collecting bits and pieces to do a new motor for Butters nothing crazy, just want a bit more power.
Typical racer......right Keith?
So I stumbled across a Z22 crank (haven't seen it buddy says its a Z22)
I have a few L20B complete engines in stock and a few U67 heads in stock also.
I"ve spent a bunch of time researching this combo Z22 into a L20B.
But I cant seem to find someone who actually has one up and running with a real world review.
So is there anyone here who can say yea or nay on that combo and offer some advise on the engine.
Thanks guys
Dan.

Can't help with info on a 2.2 crank in a l20b. But I do have a 2.2 short block here I'd sell. Its out of a car so not as desired as the truck block. The truck one can take the bigger overbore. Also not sure of condition. The safe bet is, it would need a bore and new pistons. I'd be happy with $200. Might even deliver for gas money.

Hi Mike i'll take that engine off of you. Do you have a complete IRS for a 510 in the stash also ? I'm looking for one for the project car.
Thanks Dan.
