    holysmokes. just figured up how much this will cost. made a couplespreadsheets with the different venders. looks like EGGE, CARS, BOBs,Rockauto are my choices. researched what parts from where was going to be best aftershipping. I’ve ordered from all theseguys before and never been let down. I’mdown to just EGGE and CARS for availability and price. Over $700 to just ring,bearing, and timing chain. Man, I mustlove the Straight Eight.
