I have driven some mildly modifyed 318s to well over 200,000 miles also and they were still running fine. So not saying you can not run them stock. I just like to improve things especially if they are already apart for other reasons. Cheap insurance to install some better parts. 
 
My first hotrod engine was driven pretty hard. I raced it as much as I could. I even raced it in the winter on ice tracks on frozen lakes. It was still running pretty well when I rebuilt it 22 years later. The rear pistons and cylinders were worn down more than the rest and it was burning a bit of oil. The crank and bearings were in excellent shape probably for a couple of reasons. I installed the high pressure relief spring in the oil pump at 13,000 miles before I did any other modifications. I also changed the oil and filter on a regular basis. If you give an engine regular service and they will sure last a lot longer!

The double gear & chain is only negligibly more expensive so I'll
go with that. Prob pick up a pump too if they aren't pricy...



Looks like that w/e for Doms car won't be as warm as it is now - bring
your long johns boys, it's outside, and no facilities as far as I know,
he's got an apt and the car isn't there...

Yeah, like Roger said.  There's no air or heat where the car is
located.  Here's a pic of what type of environment we'll be working in:




It's a row of connected garages that's on the premises of a large apartment complex.  MY complex is down the street - but it doesn't have garages, which is why I'm storing the car there.

I hooked up an extension cord to the outlet in the back so we can run up to about 13 amps of gear off the circuit.

The car is all ready for you guys.  Here's what it looks like now:





I assume if the weather is an issue we can stuff a space heater in there to keep warm.  Plus my wife promises to keep us plied with hot drinks and food from Ithaca Bakery.   It'll be cold in the morning, but it's supposed to be sunny and 45 degrees in the afternoon.  Still, I figure we'll break and go back to my place every other hour-or-so to warm up and use the rest-rooms.  Not ideal, I know.  Sorry.

Oh, I know I said I had a compressor - but it's doing screwy things (like blowing circuits) which is why there's no air.  If anyone wants to bring one - be my guest.

FYI - Roger CLEARLY cut a deal with the devil because the weather is going to be much warmer when we work on his car, Sunday.  Nice work, Rog.  Hope it was worth it.
