Always a critique eh Bill.

Here check out this crack......


If you can't see the crack, does that mean it doesn't exist. I'll keep that heat shield on thank you very much.

The rebuild Engine with new Crank and one new rod is being shipped back tomorrow. We had to DHL a bank draft to the rebuilder yesterday.

Hopefully have it on Saturday or at latest Monday. That only gives us 5 days to get it together before I leave again for 6 weeks.

I figured out where the two studs go but where does the large double ended screw go. I think it goes into one of the holes on the front of the heads.

It came with a new oil pump but I decided not to change it.

I installed the front cover, water pump, and oil pan.

Victor has to work again tomorrow. I told him he has to save more because this car is going to cost him......besides he still owes me.
I don't think he appreciates the time I'm spending on it. He'* convinced I'm doing it because I like to do it. Little does he realize I'm doing for him. Some day he will realize that......I hope.

Tomorrow the LIM will be installed.

I do not think, even if we manage to reinstall the engine in the car, that it will be done and ready to drive before I leave. Sure I could rush it but then I would be taking a huge chance that nothing will go wrong during the next 6 weeks of break in. Victor is not experienced enough to recognize potential problems that could occur after such a major rebuild.

I plan to do as much as possible and then finish up for the start up when I return Mid June. Better I'm home during the initial running. I need to drive it a little bit for check out.
I have too much invested in this car right now to chance it.

Please someone tell me where that stud goes.

I think I may have overtorqued the flex plate bolts after all the discussion about the correct torque. I went to 11 ft-lbs and then rotated 90 degrees instead of 50. Do you think I should chance they will be OK I think I will reorder new ones on Monday.

The gasket kit came with every gasket, seal and O-ring right down to the dipstick seal but it was missing the Throttle body gasket.

What I need now is a pictorial view of the top end accessory details showing the location and type of fasteners and ground connections. I still need to know where that double ended 2" long stud with the torx end goes....I left it on the long block when I sent it away and didn't make note of where it went....my bad!
You can see the stud laying on the valve cover.

Starter is next to go on.
Should be ready to drop into the car Tuesday, assuming the flex plate bolts are here by then.
