Heads used junk performance valves, and chitty seals, and much more.Other than that ran great for 40hrs. till it grenaded

how true. But I paid top dollar because I was told It was a fresh motor w/ only break in time on it. Not trying to badmouth anyone because the guy I bought it from may have gotten his hands in it too. Didn't want to come across as their work not being good but its ashamed that someone built a **** motor and it had their name on the valve cover.

Ya I realize that. I guess If you don't screw people over for a living sometimes you get caught offguard thinking someone may actually be telling you the truth. The motor sounded and looked good. Its not like I could ask the guy to pull the motor out and let me drop the pan before I buy it, you know.
