"I've had everything checked and it looks like I do have an internal crack in my engine block. Its a 1977, straight 6, HP 165. Serial # 4002080

Anyone near Arkansas have a used one to sell or know where to start looking? I know its a chevy engine, but what exactly would I be looking for if I were to pull one out of a truck??"

"Look for casting numbers- these are what will be needed to find a replacement. Also, there are numbers on the head, usually under the valve cover. They'll probably ask for those, too."
