You could probably do this stuff in your sleep, couldn't you? That's awesome that you've got the ability and the parts to do this.

Well its hard to say how many miles are left on the motor but it runs good and doesn't make any noises or smoke so thats a good sign. Also I didn't notice a ridge at the top of the cylinders so the bores have very little wear. Yeah I just wanted to get it done and having spare head made it faster too.

I used to be a muscle car guy and have rebuilt a few motors so this was an easy project for me.
