New Update! Got it ready for painting everything under the hood. Every sales paper I have gotten in the past month has come to a good use. Looks a little funny and I am sure my neighbor thinks it is an eye sore right now :)

Finally got my engine parts back from the machine shop and will be doing a mild port / polish job on the head before they reseat my valves. Ebay has become my friend on this build :p Got 100 sanding drums for around $10 shipped! Got a few other things too and they have saved my wallet for sure! Guess it is time for me to seclude myself and begin the long task of grinding and polishing! I will posts pics as soon as I get it done!

Update! Just got done porting and polishing the second head....yes, the second :( I jumped right in and ported and polished the first head and found that the head was warped and way out of factory spec as far as head height. The other head is close enough to factory spec the adjustable cam gears will get me dialed back in. The second head was put on the shelf due to cracked exhaust valves. Thanks to STM, I now have new intake and exhaust Supertech valve guides! They will be installed soon along with getting the Supertech valves reseated in the new head. Making progress but a long ways away!

Here are a few pics of the head :

And some home made solid lifters for dialing in the cam gears :

I have also just finished rebuilding the power steering rack and converted it to manual steering. Got some plugs to close up all the ports to prevent water from getting into the rack. I converted the rack the proper way!

That's all the updates as of right now! As soon as I can afford a gasket set, I will get the motor back together. Got to get valve guide seals before I get the head back to the machine shop to replace the valve guides.

how do you convert the rack to non power?

You have to take the rack completely apart and cut off the piston on the shaft. Once you begin assembling it, put good grease on the gear and shaft to help keep it well lubricated. You also need to plug off the holes that power steering fluid went in or out of. I bought fittings from work that threaded into the ports. A little extra, but it was better than me trying to weld up all the holes.
