if it seems to good to be true..........

well i got my aluminum PI engine home with the supposed 30,000 mile and low and behold its all sludged up and the thrust bearing is in pieces in the pan , well I only paid 500.00 for her but I was pissed, so I emailed the guy and raised hell and he refunded 250.00 so I have a nice start on a engine.
so I have a question...... can I use a mark VIII crank in this block? I figure if I have to rebuild it, I might as well do it a little better than it was.

and I just want to say this place hasn't changed much in the 3 years Iv'e been gone, eveyone is helpfull as ever. thanks in advance

The stock crank is decently strong, if you wanna upgrade go with the cobra or the 5 speed mach 1 crank.
