Photo Update on rebuild
I've kind of got my rebuild scattered over several threads so I thought I'd link them together in this thread.
Finally back at the project after a long winter nap.
Head, block, flywheel, clutch and PP are back on and now gathering a few parts to get the engine ready to go back in where she belongs and back out on the road too.
I'll start with some picks of the dirty works and then post the cleaned up parts.
Not sure how far I'm going yet. The one nagging question, besides if I've done the job correctly, or at least good enough to enjoy driving her, is the transmission. Haven't yet cracked the case. Many in my circle recommend letting that dog lay. I do see a few tiny drops of fluid after sitting for several months but not sure if I want to open that can up. I also see a few suggestions and tips about making first gear a synchronized gear so you don't have to go to 2nd or 4th for entry from a stop. Speaking of second gear, it's never been a problem for me because I always double shift anyway.
Probably sleep on it a few more days.
And now the dirty dirty photos. Okay, not that dirty, I steam cleaned most of the dirt off. BTW main reason for removal, Blowing Oil out about a quart an hour. Crack in the head, rings shot, and just a dirty girl (inside).
