This is a good pic, I can see what JET is saying.... "Now pay attention grasshopper, you will learn a few things or two..."

Naw, Hale was the teacher that day :) . I brought in the Helms manuals, but didnt even need them because he knew every torque spec and sequence by heart. Heh!

Oh. Yes, that is ONE of my ZZP hats. The other is still for sale for $1,475.

i just have a FEW more things to do.. other than connecting the TB/intake/pulley, i need to connect the coolant bottle, wiper bottle, connect vacuum lines, and a few small things..

I did run into 1 problem, I cannot seem to find out how to connect the radiator hose to the coolant bottle.. it is Male/Male connection... the hose is the same exact size as the plastic spout that sticks out the side of the coolant bottle.

In your webpage you said the engine you bought ALSO has a cracked piston?

1 cracked piston in new motor, 2 or 3 in the old one.
that leaves 3 or 4 good ones from the last motor.
