Let The Fun Begin!

After sepnding the last month and a half ordering parts, waiting on parts, cleaning parts, fretting about parts… I have finally reached the starting line for the engine assembly!

This past Saturday was spent cleaning the machined block, taping it up, and painting it. I also cleaned a huge  amount of parts. I have gone through so many different processes when it comes to parts cleaning, tried numerous chemicals from carb cleaner to brake cleaner to mineral spirits and Purple Power. But there is something else that I have found to be most useful: Simple Green. It is Chuck Norris in a bottle. The stuff is incredibly powerful… and does not have the vapors that punch holes in your brain (it’s non-toxic).

Tonight begins the build process. By Friday I will have the engine built, and ready for install. A five day vacation begins on Friday, and by the following Tuesday the car should be running. The fun, as they say… is just beginning.

Enjoy these pictures of awesomeness:
