Hello,I am looking for somebody who has got an engine,best would be a Pontiac, of this builder and can give me a feedback about it. His name is Herb Glaesmann located in Spring, Texas. He is building different brands of engines and sells them on ebay (1951herb. He says that he built around 100 engines last year, 53 of them has been pontiacs, so I guess at least one of them will also be here on that forum.Thank you.René
hi, sorry no one has answered yet. i can assure you that if any of the regulars here do know they will likely post within a day or two.there are a zillion ebay and online engine sellers so the chance is small.i looked, hard to tell. what kind of warranty and how does that work and who pays for shipping if you need a warranty and you are 12000 miles away?do you not have an engine to build?here he is 455 $4300.00http://www.ebay.com/itm/Pontiac-455-420hp-motor-for-your-CLASSIC-Pontiac-/291004272394?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item43c134cf0a#ht_465wt_1122
Hi there. I purchased the 461 stroker through herb with a few different upgrades ended up in the 7500.00 area. The engine looks great and performs well. I have had a few issues with it but have been able to talk with Herb and work them out over the phone so nothing serious. I only have 300 miles on the engine but all is ok so far. Herb has been excellent at getting back to me on the few issues I had and working through them with me. when I got the engine the carburetor was with it in a separate box and as I inspected it I found that some of the levers had been bent some how either from the factory or somehow in shipping, I contacted Herb and he had me send it back to him and he sent me out a new one no questions asked. In my opinion Herb is a decent engine builder especially for the price.
Hey I'm not sure if you went with this engine builder and I previously gave him a good review to you. However If you did used him pay real close attention to exactly what you are getting. I am having a few issues with the engine I got from him and until I get it worked out I can't say too much, but will post it on here when the issue is resolved.
