I'm thinking the same thing lol like he can't get the head gaskets done what makes you think a 5.0 swap is easier lol

Id drive over to Bismarck and we'd hit the junk yard for 2 5.0s and do a double 5.0 swap. I'd grab my trailer and load it up with tools.

You can't even change your oil correctly, let alone help him change head gaskets or do a 5.0 swap.

You are way more mechanically inclined than me though. I struggled for days with my shackles. I cant imagine what engine how'd I do at engine work.
