It's like Christmas all over again opening boxes of parts. This past week I was able to get the short block painted back to the cast iron grey and then assemble the long block. In that process a few boxes left the shelves they've been sitting on for years. So the heads are on and the cam and timing set are installed. The oil pump is in. There are some fasteners on the way to get the timing cover and oil pan on.
A little blog about the build process of a car that almost got away.
