alright here is a pic of one of my mtrs i got yesterday next to my grandmas car
i just took the tire that had a slow leak to pepboys and filled it with some air. found the leak around the bead in a few spots. i popped the bead cleaned it all up and aired it back up and now there are no leaks so when i do weld on beadlocks i will have to remember to clean up all of the beads
should be driving out to my junk in a little while to do more work

Today me and durfee were really doin work to my junk. Gave the block a second coat replaced the flexplate put the new valve covers on took the old timing cover and pan off which required removal of the oil filter housing as well. took me a while to scrape the old gasket off and that was the start to the worst 2 hours ever.the new oil pan doesnt fit. We screwed with it forever and it just wouldt go on. We were eaten alive by thousands of mosquitos. I literally have welts all over from them. So finally I tried the old oil pan again and it slips right on. And thats all we did. So tomorrow im going to clean up the original oil pan and paint that, instal it and the new timing cover then the new bbc goes in.

today i spent a longgggg time scraping off the mud and grease from my original oil pan and then cleaned it up and painted it. have it half installed along with the timing cover. if i had an extra hour and some rtv i could have had the motor in today but it looks like there is nothing stopping me from dropping it in tomorrow. here is a pic of the new 454 tbi all cleaned up and painted

Just add a little water to the oil to lighten up the color...finding it then won't be a problem! :thumbup:

I like the contrast of colors! JYD paints all his engines black.

Well tonight I sealed up and installed my new timing chain cover. Then I started bolting in the original oil pan (because the new one doesnt fit). Everything was going great till I got to the 2 bolts that go into the timing chain cover. the front of my original oil pan is alll effffffed up from the busted balancer hitting it so I still need a new oil pan. Then I got to thinking about how much play is in the timing chain so im going to order a new one, now I might as well swap cam and lifters if im doing the chain, and if im swapping cams I might as well replace the cam bearings..... You know wat, why not take the heads off and change the head gaskets.... Well then I might as well port the heads....... At one point tonight I mentally spent a few grand. And was seriously considering calling up some machine shops this week.....

I am for sure doing a cam and lifter set with a chain but the rest, hopefully not. I want this pig wheeling in november.

My new 454 will be on an engine stand soon once again

Ill probably order this today on rush shipping. But now ill definitely need to get head gaskets since I will be changing the valve springs. That is the biggest cam I can run with the stock torque converter and heads so it should sound pretty nasty
