We got all the others out (4 total) this is the last one, I have drilled it through, but the ez out has almost broken in it trying to get the remnants out... I likely will have to drill it the rest of the way and re-tap.

just came in from the garage with Adam, I DROVE it tonight. At first I thought I had a really bad rod knock, because after I drove it something started hammering in the lower end once it was warm, turned out to be coincidence it looks like, turned out it was the dust shield got bent somehow and it sounded just like a rod banging away. Took the dust shield off and she purrrrrrs. It is at least 2/3 quieter then my other motor, I am thinking the other one must have had a wild cam in it or something. I let it get to operating temp and it held about 20psi at Idle, 40 off idle. Changing the oil on Friday, and really banging out the body work to maybe paint before the Willy's reunion!

Hmmm... looking decent, put it to a test todayin a stop and go cruise... shooting steam like crazy out the overflow, but seems the hottest it got was 240.... I need to put a better gauge on it.

Here are pics of the new motor installed, It needs another air cleaner, coolant overflow, and I think a new radiator cap. It was running 220 according to the cheap harbor freight temp gauge. I bought factory gauges for it at a swap meet last weekend (all but volts) and need to install them.

I think installing the heater will bring it down more too.

More pics...










Been slowing on it even though the weather is better, had to work on the house a little (landscaping and such)
