OKC, you can use the 1981 connecting rods, you already have them, and they'll be fine. You might consider having the big ends checked for size, and ARP rod bolts would be a nice addition. You will need the same 3101HC.030 pistons we talked about before, and you'll want Hastings 2M138.030 rings. Do you have a preference on which crank to use ? If you use the roller engine crank, you'll have to get the flywheel and dampener that Husk was talking about ( 50 oz ). If you use the 1981 crank, you can use older 28 oz stuff, but you have to have the slinger cut down, its easy, the machine shop can do it for you. Then we'll start looking at camshafts. You're going to need a spider and the bolts for it if the block guy doesn't have them for you. LSG
