Try NAPA, they can be a little more than the other Auto Parts Stores, but the Quality of their product is usually far superior.

I found mine on e-bay a company out of jacksonville the whole kit. All new pistons,rings,pushrods,oil pump,freeze plugs,cam,cam bearings,crank bearings,cam gear,crank gear,timing chain,valves,valve springs,seal kit everything for $1200.00 i have the phone number at home if you need it. I can bring it to work tomorrow & post it, let me know.
I thought rebuild kits were WAY less than 1200!!! Man, I'm gonna need a lot more than I thought...Where could I easily find a block for a 56 223? Local junkyards here don't have crap...
Could you get different pistons(aluminum?)?
I'm pretty sure I am too going to rebuild my old I-6 VERY soon, but I still need a good block that is easily accessable, and not to mention some good general advice on, siply, what to do. I will have a shop do the work, but I don't know what I'm gonna have to do to get to that point...
Well, your a little too far away. I don't think I could take the time, or afford the shipping. I guess I didn't update my location on my profile like I was told, . I'm in CA, so I don't think it would be easy. As of now, I really only need a block and a carb(I think). I can still PM you if you'd like.
