We are attempting fitting a 2.7 into our 1974 rustout hulk but have come across another hurtle. I have had a 2.7 kicking around for awhile and "assumed" we could go through it with new bearings/rings/..... and have a nice power plant. Not so quick there. The head stud issue is well known and I recently found when the magnesium cases are disassembled the crankshaft bores no longer return to a round/aligned condition.

I want to believe someone out there can get these magnesium cases in serviceable condition with good crank bores and good head stud bores.

thanks
