well since you guys have last heard ive pulled the engine. and long story short i found metal shavings in the oil pan of the new engine. so since i have a nice car to drive anyway i might as well take on the task of rebuilding it. ive bought just about everything i need, finally ordered the head stud kit today. here are some pics.
getting started on the engine pull
dont realy have many pics of engine pull, we were in a hurry.
the car lifted up and engine and trans about to be pulled out
trans and cradle pulled out
then i discoverd that the new engine was toast also, some of the peices and sludge i found
new and old engine
heres the start of the rebuild process
he was corret tho, it did not have pulled heads but might as well stud it while im in there. just lots of carbon lol
bottem end without crank
thanks for veiwing guys
