It's moot, as I checked the boneyard and the local rebuilder has taken all we had.

Slightly OT, but they've had to buy new crankshafts, as nearly all the 455"s have had trashed cranks. What are you seeing with your BBOs?

Won't the Riviera have a Buick 455 in it and not an Olds?

I do know that the BOP's all had their own 455 engines back then..

And of course the 454 Chevy and 472/500 Cads.
