    Sounds good to me. I'd hate to starve a freshly built head.

    Make sure to "dress" the return oil holes in your block for optimum return of the oil in the top end. I don't know if you have thought of it, but on my Small Block Chevy motors, I try to smooth the casting area for good oil return and I also paint the lifter galley (it is slanted on a SBC) so the oil rolls right back into the pan as soon as possible. I have never had any paint flake or any issues internally as long as it is prepped just like a good paint job and using engine enamel. On the 420 I don't know if paint internally is needed but it is some of the stuff I do to other engines.
    Good luck and good progress Solomon!

    I did not. There were no local events at a decent price, and there's no way I would spend hundreds of dollars on an event when I knew I would just slide all over the place because I need softer tires.

    I made room in the garage and started tearing her down tonight. After pulling my heavy hood and heavy battery, my back told me it was time to quit. I need an easy day at work so I can spend 6 hours on the car and have the engine out.

    The engine and trans will be out this weekend. All that's left is pulling the axles and mounts.

    I must say, pulling this engine was harder than any others I have done. There just isn't enough clearance. It's ok though. I'm very glad to have made this much progress today.

    I have found it to be much easier to drop both out the bottom.

    That's the plan if I ever have to do it again. It almost looks like it was designed to be done that way.

    I removed a bunch of extra junk from the engine bay and cleaned it up a lot and saved weight. Got the engine bay and a few of the accesories painted. Look at how clean the strut towers came out!
    The engine is almost completely back together.

    Slowly but surely. Hoping to snag an MS soon and things will seriously change then.
