I said there would be no way my new shortblock would be done in time for the Marauderville trip tomorrow.. Its been done for a few days now..


Got some Diamond pistons ordered with coating. I checked the rods and they were all round:



Had my friend Marty from Wolfe Engines hone the block for me (and let me use his shop) Great engine guy!!





I file fitted the rings myself, and assembled the shortblock






Got it running Friday with no issues. I still have the fuel problem. I have a new fuel filter coming today. I checked both pumps, all lines and even took the regulator apart. In the mean time I just go easy on it.

I velcro'ed this in my engine bay to remind me what happens when you take chances

I knew you would not let a blown motor keep ol'blue from taking you to Atlanta. I wish I had my car.

We made the 720 mile trip with no issues. The oil is still full and clean as a whistle

I totaled 1874 miles on the trip and we got home about 4:30 today. The worst thing that happened was a rock chip on the hood.
No fucks given
