It was 100 dollars well spent! 4 bolt mains with a little windige tray and the cross hatch on the cylinder walls looks good as does underneath the valve covers.
Next up! Install high flow oil pump, rear main seal, oil pan gasket, install clutch components (hydraulic and mechanical/bearings) and hopefully drop this sucker in before Christmas.
Once the engine is in I can get the accessories in order, figure out what electric fan I want and etc, I would like to get the engine in before it gets cold considering I donít think Iíve felt it be winter yetÖ
after that comes headers, electric oil pressure gauge, electrical water temp gauge.[/QUOTE]
I assume you mean high volume? A high volume oil pump with stock pan can cause oil starvation issues, I have been told on several occasions. I'd suggest stick with a quality brand stock replacement
