UPDATE: July 16th Well, I got some time today to work on the shortblock and managed to get the head studs, gaskets, and heads installed. I couldn't find the little guides that the pedestal sits in for the rockers so I was unable to check the pushrod length, but I think they are at my parents and I'll get them tomorrow. As soon as I determine the correct pushrod length I'll be all set to start flying through the rebuild process. Its late and I'll have to answer some of the above question later... I'm BEAT! Mmm... AFR's! Here's Rick's little "surprise" he put in the box for me. Thanks Rick!!! Test fit of the oil pan... My wife caught me finishing up the torque sequence on the heads... I was tired then and that was hours ago! That's it for now, I'm off to bed.
