That paint job made a world of difference and it looks good.

thanks guys.

I've got the missing brackets on the way from san diego, then other than the stuff coming off my old engine (power steering, crank adapter and AC compressor...but I'll probably delete the AC seeing as it doesnt work), it'll be ready to go in.

I'm thinking you have a York compressor...the key element for OBA.

Correct. Which is why it will be sitting in my garage waiting to be converted over to air fittings and reinstalled with my rebuilt engine.

Okay! Last picture, I promise.

It's done!

Engine is about 95% ready for me to begin the swap. One or two small things left to go that I already have lined up.

Sealed up the oil pan and valve covers today (blue silicon matches nicely!) and painted my air cleaner. Also bolted the new fuel pump on.

Before....(day i brought it home)









After....Ta-da! The end result of a few days scrubbing painting and stuff....

Thanks for the comments guys! But again, remember...this is not a "nice" engine...haha. Its a 23 year old original thing with like 155k miles on it.....that now has new gaskets and a nice paint job.

I still get all nervous about that.


It'll keep me motivated to rebuild the other one!


Next up.....I'm buying a compressor and air tools.

Full alternator bracket and bolts, along with manifold bolts are on their way from San Diego this monday, thanks to a very helpful fellow FSJer, who found a decent rig in a junk yard.

After that, just gotta get my home-brew HEI ignition put together.

Looks good, it's amazing what a little paint can do.

I had a POS 73 Vega that leaked all over itself. Some gaskets and a little paint and the motor looked great. Still used oil and the rest of the car was still junk but the motor looked great.

Keep up the great work, I really like what your doing with the Waggy.

Well, its tax return time...which means i'll be doing the usual. Using some and putting some away.

Had a 20% coupon that ran out today...so I figured I'd take advantage.

Both of the air tools have great reviews, no complaints...so hell, for half the price of any big brand I figured I'd give em a try.



A bigger purchase will come this week or next week. Hint....it makes the use of these items possible. Still not sure if im gonna purchase it from HF or elsewhere...prolly HF with a warranty. Hell, free compressors for 2 years ya know?
