    I agree with the lights on and the food on the table, but it's not just a little mom-and-pop shop, it's Arnold Motor and they have 50 stores. For a large parts store I don't think it should be that hard to be in the ballpark within 25 to 50 bucks of the others. Oh well, they do fantastic work and I'll put it together.

    Fair enough. No worries- you're making progress and that's also important. 8-)

    Nice! Glad to see you sticking with the flathead; very cool piece of vintage iron.

    Seth, I feel your pain. I got nailed by Arnold's in Ankeny last year. They quoted me $100 with the cam bearings to put cam bearings in my 5.3. When I picked it up the price jumped to $235 because they mis quoted the job. They charge $137/hr for labor so I believe they don't need to sell parts to keep their lights on. That's what I get for not making the 2hr round trip and using my normal guy I suppose.
