    9/19/19, Cleaned mating surfaces for oil pan, valve cover, oil pick up. installed piston rings and measured ring gaps.
    Installed pistons with ARP rod bolts and ACL bearings. Lubed cylinder walls again & everything moves great!
    Going to try and get the head installed and torqued sometime this week, put oil pickup tube on and oil pan. Then
    hopefully get all the timing components in line.

    Tonight i got the oil pan baffle and oil pump installed. Oil pan on and mostly torqued, 4 bolts would not torque but did feel like they should. Head is set in place, ARP studs are in the head with nuts/washers on. Hopefully tomorrow ill get the head torqued. Start grinding on the valve cover to prep it for polishing and probably just clean up the engine a bit. 20190926_192033.jpg 20190926_191348.jpg 20190926_191325.jpg

    11/4/19. Been awhile since ive posted an update. Got the engine home a few weeks ago. Sourced a Clutch alignment tool that fit perfectly. Mated engine, transmission & clutch monday night. Tonight i may be getting the car on jack stands and drop the wheels and ball joints and attempt to get it set into place and prep for a night of install in the next few days. I've been way busier than i predicted for this time of year so the process of getting back together has slowed tremendously. But it's boost season so hopefully in a few weeks she'll be prowling the streets!

    Put your pictures into PAINT and resize them or email them to yourself and reduce the size to 30%. They'll post then :)
