The catch is to determine where to drill the holes from the outside of the block. Some carefull measuring required. Otherwise if holes are off just a little bit then the rod would bind against one of the sleeves. I think i can do it. Mine is only cracked between #3 and #4.
I prefer to repair this particular engine than to do a conversion or a swap. But i still have a sinking feeling that sooner or later we're all gonna have to discover someother brandX modern day engine that converts easily without alot of fancy custom made adapters. Or someone needs to manufacture one. Plenty of chevy 4 cylinders and V6's out there as well as V8's. AFAIK All chevies since 55 use the same bellhousing pattern so chevy is most likely candidate for a gasoline conversion. Cheap, plentiful and consistent are the Chevy engines. And even a back woods hillbilly like me knows how to work on one and get parts easily.

Re: Re: Re: Z129 is Shot, Need Suggestions in reply to PAUL, 04-16-2002 01:40:10 It has to be a 221, 260, or 5 bolt bellhousing 289 ford engine. The 289's 65 and newer have a 6 bolt housing and that won't work. The biggest problem I had was cooling. Mine has a belly mower under it and it is a daily user. I ended up with the hood, grill, and radiator from a 930 Case diesel before my temperature problems were completly solved. I don't have a digital camera so a picture is tough. It fits in there so nice that most people don't even notice it. Takes 2 hours and less gas to mow my 7 acre lawn than the Z120 did. To explain how I fit it in would take me an hour and several pages. I'm calving now and can't take that kind of time, but I can sure answer questions between calves. I live in SD and you're welcome to come and look. I havn't had time to paint it up so it is not real pretty,but it has potential to be a showstopper!

Packard , good luck to you, If you clean the crack good with engine degresser, shoot some sealer in it,and pull the crack closed it should work. Becareful and don't drill through an oil rifle in the block. -ed
