So I thought I’d give an update. It’s been a while.
I picked up the block and crank from the shop last week. I think I can start to assemble. I just need to get a few odds and ends together.
I’ll post some pictures in a day or so.

Do y’all have a preference on the rear main seal?

Also I’m wondering who you guys use for pushrods?

Manton series 4 pushrods which have hard drawn tubes for guide plate use. 5/16 x .083 Wall

Use the Comp 7706-1 checking pushrod

Just getting started putting the motor together. I know it’s been a while. I finally got all the parts together and in the shop. Also I built the shop. Now that I’ve got a good place and some time I’m gonna get started painting. Then it’s time to put it together.
