I especially hate it when because of my stupidity, the shipping costs more than the part....

You know, I was just thinking
 
That motor will run cooler.  A good thing in Florida.  The extra steam holes allow more water flow through the block.
 
Have you thought about a windage tray in the oil pan?

Well, Steve, I too was thinking.  Kept me up a few nights worring about it. So, to check to make sure, I had to pull the crank and, YEP, I was right, I installed the rear main seal backwards.  Good thing I checked.
 
That set me back this morning a while. Finally I got to install the OIL SLINGER, fuel pump, oil pickup, timing chain cover, and harmonic damper.  I went to install the windage tray and oil pan and...............
 
I thought the oil pans were similiar and they weren't!!!!!!!!!!!
 
Summit:
Milodoon oil pan...................
 
and since I was there...
 
Edelbrock intake and carb.........$750.00
 
Now it's  440-W(ay)O(ver)B

Not it's not! Factor in the fact that you didn't have to bore it and fork over for forged pistons!

It's 440A(bout)O(n)B(udget)

Is that like drilling holes in the bottom of the boat to let the water out?

Why does the last 20% take 80% of the time?

I screwed up again. 
I modified my oil pickup for the new Milodon stock pan and now it won't clear the baffles.  <groan> Order a new Milodon oil pickup.
 
Played with the new Holley carb.  Found out I need a special throttle linkage adaptor. <groan, groan> Order a new throttle linkage adaptor....
 
At least I got the $%#@  thing painted.
