if the machine work was done correctly and the bearings and such are a quality piece and installed correctly then yes its a good buy. around me a 400 virgin block that needs to be machined sells for around $300.

nice! yea measure the bores to see where they are at. Its really kinda hard to machine a block for the proper size if you don't have pistons. Not all pistons measure the same so the piston to wall clearance can be too big or too small. Not a big deal though. Be sure to spray it with WD-40 so it doesn't get alot of surface rust on it.

Also those 215 brodies are nice. Got any info on those?

Do you have pistons already?
