day and night #3, pictures like I said I would have.

dropped the oil pan...









if you can see the bubbles on my thumb and fingers, they are actually coolant mixed with oil. Which is what I got on my hands after touching the brackets that hold the crank shaft in place.

no rust under rocker pannels...so that'* a good thing.

so I got the oil pan bolted back up, jumped the car since the battery went dead again (3rd or 4th time since I got home)





oil leak that wasn't fixed by a new gasket. IDK where to go from here, I would like the leak stopped but I'm out of ideas.





idk how oil got back there but it must have at some point

the ginder and wire wheel I used for getting rid of all the rust. She may be small but it rips pretty good, especially with the course Knoted wire.

more weather stripping adheasive for pass side.

the paint I WAS going to use to touch up the visiable areas...

and after dinner I started at it again...


dropped the front to below where it would normally sit


my awsome tool set up, nice and easy to access, and lots of flat space for other stuff.


holding back fuel rail and such



UIM off

oil


more oil and the stove pipe.

idk what that tube is...anyone care to inform me?


UIM lookin good, like it should, it was replaced not too long ago.


LIM and gaskets removed

coolant elbow



dirty coolant from when I drained the radiator.




LIM gaskets...yes they are ugly...






LIM



I didn't know you could get them powder coated




all the carbon and brake clean from the throttle body

nice and clean (minus gasket surface, I know, ran out of brake clean)


can you spot the coolant??






I replace the injector O rings too, pile of old ones


and I'll finish this picture ***** session up with some of yours truely HAHA

The gaskets look like they needed to be replaced.

TB should be cleaned with TB cleaner...it has lubricants specific for air only intakes. BC is only for gasket surfaces.

Looking good w/one exception. Have you washed those clothes since you were at NEBF?

I'll get some TB cleaner and re clean it.

Yeah I washed them a few times. The shirt is getting tossed after this
