I wouldn't have a problem with all the dust, if the asking price was $400. After dropping a valve in one of my "good" motors in one of the many g-body cars I've had, I picked up a free SBC that was sitting on the floor of a body shop for god knows how long. And believe me, if it weren't free, it wasns't worth it. That dust was in EVERYTHING.
Too bad you weren't closer, seems like I can find 401's on a weekly basis around here for a decent price. Heck, I'm pretty sure I have a bare 401 block here actually.
