The engine came back on 1-30-08.  The engine like the rest of the car was in pretty good shape...if it had not been left to sit.

The engine needed no machine work just a good clean up.  New pistons where bought the ring groves where a little worn.  I am in the process of putting everything together at the moment.  The head got a general rework, all valves where good, and springs tested good as well.  Just new guides.  I hope to have the engine in the car and running by the end of the month.

Body work has been put on hold till I get the engine and tranny installed.

 

      

The engine was just cleaned, nothing was needed other then that.  Everything was still standard

size.
