Hey guys.
The 221 v8 in my ‘62 Meteor is long overdue for a rebuild. Any known good rebuild kits, or ones to avoid?
From what I heard it’s similar to a 302 rebuild, correct

Any info is appreciated.

Thanks!
Yeah, not a lot listed for this engine in catalogs or online , but when I actually called places like Summit Racing it seems they still stock bearings,rings, oil pump, ect. for it.
