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 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...

Do some more searching on the internet, but $1200 might be in the ballpark.

And mOROTBREATH, if you really need a block. Send me a PM, I will tell you what I have.

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.

Most of the full kits I have seen have been b/w $900 - $1200. I just can't believe they cost that much for a full kit.
