I wish I would have stroked this motor but it will still spin the tires as much as I want to do it. I did step up to the Milodon external oiling setup. This weekend I stepped up a new oil pan also. It will be here on Tuesday. I got the new external pump mounted today along with the motor mounts. Three bolts on each side were loose when I removed the old motor. I used some blue locktite this time.
