What about them? The cam and valve springs are the only real issue on explorer motors.

Iron block, and The like 9.5 comp responds just fine to boost if you don't tune it like a spaz.

The bottom end is actually super clean, and the rod bearings seem solid.

Dropping off the top end to Opel Engineering on Friday.

Going to have them deal with the upper and lower intake (Cleaning), and I'm going to have them test/clean the heads and deal with the top end assembly to save me some time so I can just 'drop' them onto the bottom end.

I told my wife how much I've spent this year on car parts. She didn't care. I keep a spread sheet of my spendings per car.

She doesn't especially care either so long as we keep ordering goodies for her car on occasion as well.

I hugely regret getting rid of my last ranger, so I'm going a little overkill making this one exceptionally 'new' parts wise.

All you have to do is explain the old engine was no good, and the new 331 stroker short block will be safer and more reliable. Done deal!

@Turbocharged400sbc was basically recruited against his will into helping (Which I appreciate tremendously) and it sounds like he has one side of the 'standard' brackets done already.

Moved the Mustang outside for now since the weather was permitting for me to push this heap back into my garage!

Should be able to wrench on it in the coming weeks again!

Oh I see you were begging and pleading for that s*** right away and all you ended up doing was cleaning the Mustang parking it outside and pushing in the Ranger

It's a little bit easier to mock up things when I'm not working in snow .

I like the wooden plank you sent with the brackets

I'm an ambitious guy, but not quite install an engine on Christmas day ambitious!

I just want you to hold the one side up to the block and confirm it clears and then hold up the other side to the 4.0 Mount and make sure it cleared.... you don't even have to install the f****** engine to confirm that....

This just proves that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it think

I did knock the one corner off at a 45 because from the one picture you sent it looks like it might be in the way of some swap headers.
