Finally bottoming up this stock engine, so I can get to work on the stroker. I should be able to get this one swapped in by this weekend.....granted everything goes smoothly....and because I said that, there will be something interesting to pop up. Here's the latest. Swapped out the main studs for OEM bolts. As I don't have the time to cut the threads with a die, for this engine. I'll do that for the stroker. Gave it a Brake Clean bath. That dirty whore. Seriously, I should start investing in Brake Clean and JB Weld. ... the valve covers are also installed, and the spark plugs are in. Just waiting on a new oil pick-up to be able to install the lower oil pan. The Go Time.
