Sweet! Was wondering if you really had a Jeep. Just kidding!

Sign me up for the ride. I have always loved the slotted 76 and earlier Renegade rims.

I noticed your missing you hood latches. I have a set of crusty hood latches that would clean up and paint if you put a little time in to them. Yours for shipping to get you started if you want them.

Let's do it! It will be fun to watch someone else skin their knuckles and mash their fingers for a while!

Ok well have a few more mashed fingers doing things the hard way LOL as always. Gonna have to figure out a way to scale images or put them on PB half would not load because they are slightly over the forums size limit.

And lookie what I found not sure what to do here well I know what I am going to do for now. Will get the heads done and put her back together that is between the coolant ports does not compromise the cylinder at all. I guess when I get her running I will be on the look out for a 360 to build.

Hopefully the image sizes on PB will come out alright.

Well look what I found when I took the Intake off.



A little closer yep pushrods but they were all there.



One engine out and ready for cleaning.



Again hope these images are not to big.

Wow.. Looks like all the push rods are there. I guess your PO broke them and didnt pull the intake to remove the old ones..

I guess you dont need those hood latches I offered now ;-)

You got the engine pulled quick! Whats the plans now??

Fairy dust is right LOL I spent the day cleaning and getting ready for the reinstall.

All ready for the wire wheel

And another view


Also like I knew better, wire wheeling in shorts hurts felt some shrapnel hit my leg ouch no biggie look down wire sticking out of my leg stuck in there pretty good but I always wear eye protection no excuses.
