10 hours. It'* amazing how 4 hours difference it is between tear down and reassembly, and I'm not even done yet.
Once the sensitive hard stuff was together, it became a marathon to get it back together. And with my luck, surprisingly I got #1 TDC and only finangled the dizzy 3 times to get it lined up on #1 wire. No check engine light, oil pressure is 60 at idle now. I couldn't drive it because I still have to connect the torque converter, connect the exhaust to the manifolds(its running open headers now) button up other house keeping things in the engine bay, put the hood back on, and re-verify nothing is touching the exhaust(already found one wire) and do some scanning.
BTW, with my shoulder in some bad pain from the last few days, torquing those cylinder head bolts was real fun. I can't wait to do the exhaust tomorrow.
