    Well finally started putting the engine together!

    First road block....the new exhaust valve guides are .0010 bigger than the factory ones so the valve stem seals donít fit. Machine shop is looking for the correct ones. I also dropped off the piston heads and old pistons so they can balance and assemble the pistons.

    I installed the crankshaft and Iím ready to install the pistons once the machine shop has completed them. Plastigauge sucks.....



    New Valve Stem seals installed on Intake side.

    Put in some work today!

    Cleaned up the top of the block.



    Gapped the piston rings and installed them on the pistons.



    Then I installed the pistons.





    Installed the oil baffle and pump.





    Then I installed all of the valve springs. That took a long time. I was very careful with the keepers because you donít want one of those flying across the room. Youíll never find it.





    I put about 8 hours of solid work today with breaks here and there. Iím ordering new timing chain guides tonight from ECS and they should be here sometime next week. Once I get those on I can put on the timing chain, timing chain cover, and then mount the head on the block.


    Itís really starting to come together. I canít wait to be finished and driving again!

    Put in some more good work this weekend. Just waiting on my timing kit to arrive so I can set the timing, install the rebuilt Vanos, and put on the valve cover.
