ideal- start stripping the CJ7 down for a off frame build up

more likely I'll just be pulling the 360 out from under the hood for a rebuild over the winter

Pulling my engine and doing a total rebuild, tossing the L67 with 8.5:1 compression and building off a L36 with 9.5:1 compression. Porting the heads, and building everything up. Also cleaning and painting everything.
