I decided to go ahead and loop the timing belt through the motor mount just to prep for the cams when they show up sometime this century. The torque solution mounts are very nice and fit perfectly if anyone is looking to replace their old ones these are very nice quality. Too bad my Ignition amplifier covers this up it looks very nice in there.

No new parts yet but i heard from STM today and verified a ship day for my cam shafts 4/4/21. My initial order date was in January. This is literally the longest ive ever waited on engine components.

Nice caps Jeff! I hated looking the rusty reservoir bracket. It always stuck out to me for some reason and they’re all rusty.
Thank you, JMF makes really neat stuff. I have their plug wire cover and oil cap in the same billet silver. Unfortunately i cant put them in until that guy sends me my valve cover who knows when that will happen.:banghead:

Got the valve cover fire today and mocked up the add ons to get a sneak peak of the end product. Brian Crower Cams will be here in the morning and the beast will be eating by the end of the day!

Kind of ran into a snag that I am just way too paranoid to decide on so if anyone has any input I got everything perfectly tensioned and can't decide if the the Crank is at TDC. opinions would be very appreciated.
