Re: Can this be worth the price?

Maybe it came as a part of a set with other pieces and the $150 was for every thing.
Otherwise it was a drill bit sold to the US Government along with the $700 toilet seats!

Re: Piston orientation

They probably cut the ring grooves and added spacers to save the pistons.
In any case those pistons have been more than once around the block.

Re: Head gasket indentations pics

Yes, use it. I've used worse with copper coat sprayed on it.
If it works, do the right thing and send the new gasket back to Sacramento Vintage.
None of the vendors work on a very big profit margin.

Re: The Terry Burtz 5 main bearing engine blocks are back on track.

Maybe the question should be how much power can it handle. The weak link is usually the crank and this one looks pretty stout.
It would be fun to put a good overhead on it and see how it will RPM.

Re: New Engine Oil Change

I always change the oil and filter if it has one on any engine I run for the first time.
Most of the time they run for at least an hour. Its cheap insurance.
