I bought a 500 and it turned out to be a 1970 472. So to make it a 500 I'm selling the crank and pistons, I'm keeping the connecting rods. MTS wants $200 for a crank that garunteed to be good within .030 grinding, I'll sell this one for $200 and it won't need more than .010. Pistons will be going for $250 they appear to be in perfect shape. I'll be getting pics up asap. thanks.
no real reason, but I'm not in any hurry to get this project done so I figured I might as well do it how I want it. It really just boils down to the personal satisfaction of knowing I have a jeep powered by more than 500ci. bragging rights i guess.
I know your not calling me one, I'm calling myself one for my apparent inability to read.
Yes I am dead set on building a 500 but I'm not sure if I'm going to use this 472 as a basis for it. I found a supposedly complete running 500 at a junk yard a few hours from my house for $300 so I'll probably go check that out some time soon and if its all it is cracked up to be I'll buy it and just sell this 472.
