Thanks.

The big brown truck dropped off a few things for my Jeep today.
Got my gas tank straps, new radiator hoses, upper and lower gasket kits, new timing gears and chain, crank rod and cam bearings, oil pan, oil pump and pick up screen and a few other misc things in.

I am happy that my parts are showing up, although my motor just got to the machine shop...and they just left for a weeks vacation so it looks like it'll be a few weeks.

Small update. Got my head back from the machine shop last week and seeing as how the block is not done yet I thought I would polish the intake and exhaust ports, gasket match them and the intake manifold. Got some of it done yesterday shooting to finish it this afternoon. Here are a few before and afters.

Also did a little work on my front blinkers seeing as how I'm putting tube fenders on, I moved them to the front grille.

Thanks guys, I never had time this past weekend to finish the head, hoping over the next few days to be done. Then its on to intake manifold. I'm also working on building my own bumper but that is really taking its sweet time...(ie i need to focus on it and finish it). Ill post some build pictures of that soon also.

I finally got the block back from the machine shop and can finally get moving with this build. Aiming for this coming Fri/Sat. I laid out almost all of the parts going in the motor and started cleaning everything. Picked up a parts washer on Friday, what a great tool, so much nicer and easier to clean parts in this thing. I'm shooting to finish cleaning the parts this morning and then spray some paint this afternoon.

So this weekend turned out to be rather productive/time consuming. Spent most of the weekend cleaning parts getting everything ready for paint so come next weekend all the parts will be ready to bolt on to the motor.

I got my Mopar Performance Dual Valve Springs installed on the head. Here is a side by side comparison of them verses the factory valve spring.
Mopar mag valve springs - P5249464
Mopar spring retainers - P4452032
Mopar valve keepers - P4529218

And everything installed.

Alright so I know its been awhile since I have posted, but progress has been made
Motor has been built, painted, Clutch installed, motor mounts in, engine mounted, accessories attached (most of them), exhaust mostly on etc... here are some updated pics more will be coming along as this project moves.

On a side note, I found today when flipping the tub over to undercoat it that 4 of my tubs mounting locations are all rusted, which means my hope of getting the tub mounted this coming weekend just got shot to heck. YAY another thing to slow me down.

I have looked around quite a bit, anyone have a write up of some sort on what you/others have done for fixing the body mount locations? Aside from just getting another tub. Living in New England just about every Jeep is rusting out.

From my calculations I should be in the low 9's for comp ratio.
