There she is

Got everything cleaned up

Had to move the old engine out to a covered space where the new one is, lawn mower did the trick

Not a great work space but better than nothing

I ended up spinning it 180* so it was right beside the other engine, then covering both with a drop sheet of plastic that painters use then put weights around the perimeter of it to hold it down. Should do the trick. I need to go buy another engine stand and some bolts long enough to use to mount it on the stand--I'm not sure the engine stand I have is big enough to not tip over with one of these engines on it but guess we'll see
