I put up a wanted ad on theamcforum for another set of parts and it was answered almost immediately. If you have an account over there, I bet if you ask, someone will have a set available. If you do not have an account, let me know and I can ask for you...

Thanks Marc!
I do not have a account over there, but figured I should make one anyway. Thank you for the offer!

"Soon" is a relative term.

That is a sweet Ramcharger! It looks to be in super shape. They don't make them like they used to. The engine wait will be worth it. The engine builder I have used is slow as molasses, but both engines just purr. Enjoy the assembly!
And take pictures.

Thanks Kaiserjeeps! Ain't that the truth!

Update, I got new to me connecting rods from AMC-Performance.com. Dan was great and had several sets at a good price.
I delivered them to the machine shop Monday, hoping he got to work on them yesterday.
Will call today!

Good golly its been another month!

Just dropped off the rest of my rotating assembly for balance on Monday.
Was hoping I'd hear from them before now, but as usual I will call them between 2-1000 times a day until I hear from them a week later

Apologies that the only update I have is a complaint

I guess that is more time to clean and prep the engine bay and order install parts/supplies.

If only....
With my limited garage space, I need the engine back so I can put it together and pull what I need off the 360 in the Wagon. Building the 401 will also clear off the shelves of engine parts just waiting to go on.

Then with that done I can pull the 360 engine and sell/get rid of it. Then finally remove the rest of the interior and glass to do the body work to prep for paint.

Waiting on the machine shop has held up the whole process unfortunately.

Heard from the machine shop today, need to replace my harmonic balancer, it was falling apart.

They are going to get one for me and then it should be balance and get it back to me.
