Valves all in, everything cleaned up. Installed three new lifters. They look different than the original ones from the factory. Head is on, cams locked, engine set at TDC. Had a huge crack in the lower chain guide, so ordered a new one from AutohauzAZ. While reassembling the sprockets and thrust washers, I over-torqued the studs on the intake side. Broke one. Going to pick one up today.
A lot going on in the past week. Got laid off on Friday 12/30, have been trying to organize a new office (going in as a full partner with a financial planning/Insurance firm). Need to get that going quick, need income.
More pics soon.
