Krooser is on a distinguished road

I get the impression that I'll need the flywheel and convertor and maybe the ECM. That should do it...

Regarding the engine miss.. it turned out to be an oil fouled spark plug. This engine does OK on oil if I run SAE 40... not so good with multi-grades. I think I may have a scored cylinder or a broken ring land on #8....

Now to pick an engine...
