Motor Update

Got the block and head back from Del's Machine in Sacramento who are a great resource and I always have good results with this business. I gave the head the mild port and polish via the Greek fellows book. Most of my rebuild stuff comes from Spruell's who where good to work with on the old school way of making calls and actually talking to someone.

I have the crank in. Just had it polished and checked clearances. All looks good. For a filthy abused and neglected car some parts are in very good shape after you clean the years of crud off them.

I had to spend a lot of time cleaning corrosion out of the inside of this block. The head needed welding where corrosion has eaten away at the surface. This little car was not well cared for.
