Summit Racing came to the rescue with oodles of affordable equipment. For less than $400 I got a brand-new Summit high-performance HEI distributor, plug wires, oil pan, high-volume oil pump, 100-amp alternator, a Flex-A-Lite fan, Fel-Pro gaskets, and other assorted odds and ends to make the incomplete 350 run. While the pan was off I checked the bearings, which were hashed but serviceable. A compression check would've shown the nonexistent ring seal and completely wasted valve guides. Oh well.
