Nope. Rough cast aluminum is plenty good for the bell housing and Muncie.

Mercie, progress is slow enough as it is!

You had better roll on the floor laughing. I am still debating whether to have the flywheel surfaced or not. Protecting a reputation for frugality requires a lot of forthought.

The motor did turn SPI orange today. I did not get around to the intake but hopefully it gets painted tomorrow.

Nothing super cool. Chrome Corvette style tin covers. They will go with the dual snorkel factory breather for the OEM HP TurboJet look.

Is that your motor? If so, what do you have for exhaust manifold coating. I like the cast iron look.

I am using Eastwood Black on my truck,,i have used the cast a lot on other engines,,They called it cast gray for a while now I think it is called stainless coating,

BRUCH on not the spray,,the black has been on around 5 years

I guess it goes without saying,,preheat the manifold from the Inside with a torch before brushing it on,

I made it to the shop long enough to put 3 coats of Wanda silver base and 3 coats of SPI Universal clear on the Edelbrock Intake.

Looks really good. This hopefully will stop the staining issues that so frequentlu occure with aluminum intakes.

That's the best thing I've seen happen to an aluminum intake.
