replaced cam bearings...new cam and lifters.
new alu timing gears.
bored and honed cylinders... .30 over with 307 flat top pistons to bring up compression to 9 to 1 aprox, molly rings.

Mauro says his engine is ready to be put in the van, so tomorrow I will bring my Cherry picker and my T-10 4 speed transmission and get them bolted up until he gets his custom built overdrive transmission for it,,,,,,

Now I will tell you the problems,,,,,He trys the bolt in the new new motor mount,,,,it gets stuck, and tears the center nut out of the rubber, some of those new motor mounts have metric threads in them,,,,,I have an extra so we keep going,,,,,there is no pilot bushing in the end of the crankshaft, so we can't put the clutch on,,,the water pump hits the timing cover and the shaft is too long on the new water pump,,,we look at my 1st Gen crossmember and put his 2nd Gen one in the same way,,,,after we put the engine and transmission in,,,,,there is a 4 inch gap between the engine and bellhousing, so we need to flip the crossmember around,,,,the trans won't go back on with the bellhousing on it,,,,needed to put bellhousing on 1st, then trans,,,,when tightening everything up other new motor mount rubber comes apart,,,,and finally,,,new front header hits the motor mount,,,,,,but it is ,,,,,,,LOOKING GOOD!

Ok,,,,,,,time to connect all these parts together and see if we can bring them to life,,,,I bring an old distributor to turn the oil pump with a drill to pump up the lifters and an adjustable valve cover and we put in the HEI and see what happens,,,,here is the video ,,,,
