And a few pics of the heads. The little bit of dirt on the top side of the heads is from being in the shop with the valve covers loose while I have been working on the truck.

The motor I'm using was originally put together in 1995.The original truck was damaged in 1998 by a hail storm and the motor has been sitting in storage mode ever since.The run down on it is as follows:
SBC 350 truck block with 4 bolt mains,steel crank,forged pistons(0.30 over),erson gear drive,comp cams 292 cam and matching valve springs,double hump angle plug heads with 1.60/2.02 stainless steel valves and full roller rockers,screw in studs and guide plates.

I took the motor to work to occupy my spare time and started to tear into it.I am just opening it up to make sure everything is okay,and then reseal it.

I was happy to see what it looked like inside.Almost all of it looks like brand new still.Took a few rags and some carb cleaner and cleaned the rest of it up.

I had also stripped the paint so I can repaint it later....

11-10-2010 09:18 PM Primer,Round 2
Finally got the second round of primer on the cab and front end.The first round was a sprayable filler,so the second round is a 2k primer that can be top coated over. Now back to more fun.....wet sanding....

10-24-2010 07:49 PM Hood trim
I always liked the '48 hood trim so I wanted to put it back on. I used some 3m panel bond to put some bolts onto the moldings then marked the hood and installed them. I am trying to get any holes drilled before the next round of primer starts.
