After I pulled the head off their were areas on the head gasket with oil and coolant, not sure if that was from me lifting the head off or if the gasket was starting to let go:hmm: The car wasn’t pushing ANY coolant or burning any oil when I shut her down but who knows.

    Finally got the rotating assembly out! The rod journals/bearings looked great but the main journals/bearings had some scoring, this is also after only 500 miles or so on this motor. 981A9C33-1AE3-4AF9-9824-829EF9F79458.jpeg 052B2D53-95AA-46B2-9718-AAA359E49665.jpeg 03976763-2EEA-41B4-93A0-37227805CADC.jpeg C5C34AC7-7F27-4A33-BCF1-5D70682A6151.jpeg

Had a couple buddies from work give me a hand and I couldn’t be happier to slowly be makin some progress with the car. My goal this summer is to complete my fuel system upgrade, 4 bolt swap and then upgrade rotors/brake lines and re-paint the calipers and upgrade the rear pads. Then hopefully come October drop off the block/head at the machine shop:hellyeah:
