Re-replaced the head lights with aftermarket black housing and replaced the OEM tail lights to match the head lights. I've got the brand new '97-'99 front bumper cover, just need to order the rear bumper. In the 1st and 2nd photos the top photo is the "before" and the bottom is the "after". The last photo just shows the difference between low and high beam. The project continues...

I've been looking for a used DSS driveshaft for a long time and finally found one. Guy was super nice and even included the tail shaft and carrier bearing. Stoked to get this bad boy mounted up and do some test pulls!

Thank you, Javier!

Sweet manits really a great feeling when people are like what is that. There are a few in town 2 I see and know about me and my best friends. I think one other guy has a one.
I especially like it when a kid comes to my house to solicit something and starts with "hey I am a big car guy but what is that?(eagle talon). I've never heard of a Talon before."
 
Done did the lash adjuster bleed (re-verifying they are bled down properly) and got the cylinder head all put back together. Will have the breakdown/tutorial in my build thread soon of how I went about this

New dowel pin installed and checked the valve lapping I did. Need to make a thread chaser and clean the head stud threads before I install the new studs and cylinder head. Still need a new 7 bolt oil pan but almost got the engine back together!

Water has high surface tension which doesn't make it the best for checking leakage around the valve seat. This is also why its edge takes the form it is around the valves in that picture. One way around that is to force air into the dome so that pushes water past the seat, but now we're just going nuts just for water and there are better liquids that can be used.

WD40 from the backside of the valve when the head is tilted on angle to saturate the seat will work better as it creeps into every crevice. Hell, it might even be too good because of that very reason. Some people also use kerosene but I have no experience there..
 
working on my half radiator set up need to get some brackets welded on so i can mount this thing so i can get it out of the garage to drive it. Worked on new fuel pump relay, tryin to route stuff in the engine. Looking for a sand blaster so i can get the front end of the car stripped. Soon.

Would rubbing alcohol work? Or gasoline?
