    Been busy in the last few weeks with everything going on. Here's some updated pics of the heads I've been trying to get ported and I'll see about adding a few of the new shop. Things are coming along slowly but they are coming along.:party43: Here's a pic of the heads as well as the tools I use when I port them.:sprite10:

    That's the owners son, not mine. Believe it or not it's considered a "pure stock" car. He's been working on it for 2 years now and just after getting the engine in it there was a leak we couldn't find. It turned out that while torqueing the heads on the block cracked.:tantrum2: When the new engine came out of the shop the owner asked if it was going into a sprint car.:rockwoot:

    The Sanford and son sign actually says "Haneys, not to be confused with Sanford and Son". The angle killed it though.:frown:

    I see the frame on the pure stock looks right.
    HEADS ARE Super Nice Charlie.

    Getting there

    Well I finally got the 83 into the shop.:rock: Unfortunately the GN still has to stay out for now.:mad: Here's a few pics of it for now. It's been 2 days of cutting and fitting but at least the rust repair is started now.:party43:

    I got a little frustrated with body work so I decided to tear the engine down that I got with the 82. The crank is going to Florida to help out a friend with his B4Black car. He didn't want a turbo crank so I offered him this one. Rolled fillets on the mains but not the rods.I'm glad I didn't slap this in the car without tearing it down now. Cast pistons, wear marks from just turning the crank on both the rods and mains, and mismatched heads. One 8445 and one 293. The other thing I noticed that was weird is no cooling passage at the front of the block on both sides. Much better sealing surfice but kinda weird.:dunno:

    Got the skin of the other repair panel today as well as the gas tank out. The tank looks good and has a small spot of rust in it where the pick up was rubbing on the bottom. It also has the baffel in it, which is a relief.:rock:

    The suprise is that the original shocks are still on the car. Seems like no one ever did any maintainance to the car.:thinking:

    None of my blocks 4.1 my HA block nor my old '83 t-type block has those passages in the front, I don't think any production engine does, makes the coolant flow across the head to pull heat.

    Well I started on the other side today and didn't think it would be that bad. Once again I was wrong.:crying: I was hoping that the inner was ok but I was wrong. The plug wasn't sealed properly and the wheel well has some damage.:tantrum2: I'm glad I got as much of the fender as I did now. I havent decided whether or not to cut the area of the plug out and replace it or try and weld the area up yet. I'll decide later which I'm gonna do.

    On the good side I left plenty of meat on the new outer skin this time so I won't be adding a strip to it like I did on the other side.:frown: :icon16:
