  2. Big baby girl doggie. Suzzy is now 10 and loves to ride. She sits there like a kid in the back seat and looks out the windows. When we take the camper she knows she is on vacation and gets to eat vacation people food. Does not bark when inside and ignores other dogs, loves cats and has two of her own. They help in the shop when done working in the house. 100_0305.JPG

    So this weekend has been spent doing a lot of cleaning on all the engine parts. As you all know it's just a very time consuming, boring process. I don't feel a need to post pictures because 1.) You've all seen it before any why bother lol
    2.) I'm not sure if it would show up in picture of a before verses after anyway.
    But I'm making progress still. And the weekend is still here so if I do something worth wile to post, I'll be sure to post it!

  4. If you are getting it ready to send out for any machine work be prepared to do it all over again. A competent shop should send it back clean but you still need to check.

    Today I did a thing. Thought I'd be buying my casket by the time I got home. At our car club meeting my dad casually brought up that we needed a crankshaft for our motor just to see what was available. After said meeting we got a phone call from another member saying their son had one and it was on the way home. We went there and he had the whole block! Sold me the whole thing for $50!! He just wanted it out of his garage... You know how that goes. This guy has a 63 falcon he's putting together and that motor came from his car, which I think is pretty sweet! This whole block is in way better condition than the one I have. We already checked the bore and it's the same... The crankshaft that I had previously had more wear (obviously it was too wore out) but it wasn't THAT different. So.. now come som research and to be honest I think it's going to come together better!

    YAY!

    BTW, no caskets are ordered. Yet.

  7. You probably know this Sarah but do your due diligence and make sure that you are not mixing 28 Oz with 50 Oz imbalance parts. It is easy enough to do and they will physically go together but will shake itself apart in short order. The change over date from 28 Oz to 50 Oz was in 1981 and that year parts can be either.
