Hard to tell what someone's reasoning was. Is that like the "Red Ring of Death"?;) We were happy they couldn't get to the insides!!! :thumb:
The man wants his block Ford Blue.......poor Ford guys won't notice the dizzy in the BACK not the FRONT, ROFL

You gotta really chill with the Ford comments, we try dammit! I’ll have you know when Ford engineered the 3.0 v6 they figured it’d be genius to toss the distributor in the back like a GM product so our simple minds are allowed that confusion LOL.

All joking aside that’s good to know with the crank polishing technique you mentioned. I want to attempt to polish my other 6 bolt crank myself for something to do using the ol emery cloth and boot string trick, was going to try using some Brasso but I like the WD40 idea.

I don't harp on any manufacturer anymore. I used to be a die hard Chevy man, but anymore, if its FAST or COOL, it's all good with me. I have rebuilt Ford small blocks, Chrysler small blocks and Slant 6's, Chevy small blocks (No Big Blocks), Saturns and a Honda but no Toyota's (maybe they last longer) and MITSUBISHI's. I enjoyed every rebuild, even if I haven't ever seen them before (like my DD Saturn 1.9L DOHC). Just nuts and bolts to me.
The WD40 makes a good cutting oil for the emery cloth and leaves a nice finish. I use it on my 4g cranks and they turn out looking just like that SBC crank! Thanks for following along all the different stuff I/we do!

not to take away from your carnage, i think i can compete with you in the 'carnage department' after pistons kissed my valves - broken valves, smashed piston head, etc.

These aren't all of my carnage pictures but most of them. ROFL I don't have a picture of all 16 of my "special" bent head valves from 5 years ago though, it was a nasty site too. I build them, and then the boyz tear them up and the cycle repeats. :banghead:

Probably so.......I've been building for 44 years but never too old to learn or try something new. This is the first time I have had a W5M33 apart....boy what a bunch of parts!

Well I have been so "scared" to tear into my 5 speed trans for years, but thanks to our fellow members (@pauleyman and @twicks69 ) I have replaced parts and have the main part of it back together. This forum is so good about lending a hand, where else would you get that?
Nowhere.
Thanks guys! I sure appreciate you!
A few pics. I ended up having the 4 spider center dif. I always wondered if I got what I paid for.

Well, dont be. It can be hard but doesn't have to be. If you have a press it sure helps! (And FRIENDS for advice and guidance) :thumb:
