    This car was sold several years ago to a friend of mine, then sold to another guy. I’ve just purchased the car back in a non running state. Previous owner did a timing belt and upon firing it up the motor jumped time.
    Found the tensioner pulley not set right and I believe that’s where it all went wrong. Pulled the head and found a few bent valves. I’ll be doing a head swap and digging into a few other possible issues and gremlins with the car as o try to figure out its future. Not sure if I’ll be gutting it to turn into a budget track car and chase down some hondas as a 11.50-12.50 index car or attempt to clean it up and sell it for profit or part it out. It’s still a rust free shell with some minor body rust in a few spots with 230+k on it now.

    Got the car pushed towards the garage finally for reassembly. Block surface is cleaned and head studs reinstalled. Going through engine degreaser, kroil, and carb clean like it’s my job. Waiting on gasket kits now so it can be put back together
