long before i knew about this site and waynes book i thought id rebuild my'75 2.7 mag case engine. two studs had pulled , so i helicoiled the two damaged ones (yes i know-HELICOILS????) and replaced all the studs with new dilavar studs (yes i know-DILAVAR????). 200 miles down the road and id pulled some more on the other side. I probably wouldn't have junked the motor and started throwing HIDEOUS amounts of money at a 400hp 930 engine build if id have read the book, spoke to blokes at this place and dunit proppa the first time round! (having said that, the down side to doing the 2.7 proppa would have meant that i wouldn't have my 400hp 930 engine so, in hindsight, thank god they pulled!
