    and...

    Here are some progress pictures. I have a new-found respect for anyone that works on these engines. The engine stab was not very easy compared to a lot of others I've seen.

    It's good to be back on the road!

    I got some great pictures of the engine builder's progress too. Milling the heads, doing the valve job...etc Very cool of him to take the time to do that for me!!

    488 miles to go for break-in.

    I'll post pics of the engine bay soon.

    Here are the pics from the machine-shop. It's a local guy who was a friend of my bro-in-law. He's been building race-engines for some time:
