It's growing

.jpg   004.JPG (Size: 264.85 KB / Downloads: 90) Thursday will be 1st full day on motor build. Hope to get all pistons rings done, Install crank and all pistons. Must wipe down block 1st and have plenty of moly assemble lube for crank.

My goal is to have it running and driving late April so I can determine what else is needed before summer. Want to drive it awhile before any decisions concerning body and paint. Will take lots of PIC'S for everyone so this midlife engine builder can show it was not a dreamTongue

Great work, Alan! I'm right behind you - please make all the mistakes first and tell how to do it differently. Tongue

Does that blue engine paint come in a rattle can by chance?

Keep up the good work.

Do not overlook putting plenty of oil on the wrist pins where the pistons pivot.
