04-02-2005 11:16 AM Been a long Winter
I haven't been very up to date on the pics here or anything but thanx to old man winter in North IDaho here, I didn't get very much accomplished as my garage is not heated. The engine does run now (quite well too) and I have the gas tank in working order now as is the wiring. I still am in search of a transmission and I think the time has come for it.

After getting the motor on the engine stand it was discovered that (1) the cylinders all have compression (yeah!!) and (2) there is a crack between two freeze plugs. On the bright side, it is contained within a water jacket so a welder should be able to fix the crack easily enough and some new freeze plugs. I think I may just drop it off at the shop for a full overhaul. It does have compression though.....hmmm....

I would scrap the whole motor but the numbers on the motor match the ones on the car. Original motor!!

My holiday at work here. Aluminum motor so I went with the Silver paint....Grabber Green got my attention and after debate with the girlfriend we decided to highlight the engine compartment and engine in the green. You either like it or you don't. Not being a professional bodyman or anything I am sure it isn't the best but it is better than before!!

ok, after 3 hrs we got the hood open and behold, the original motor w/ matching serial numbers is sitting here. It hasn't ran in 9 years but it ran when parked.

Well, I drove this to Idaho from Cali in 1995. The tranny went out after a year and then it sat until now. Getting it to my garage finally!!
