No pics this week but have an update.

Worked all weekend painting all the accessories, oil pans, timing chain covers, oil coolers, bell housings etc.

My builder got the rods cleaned up and ready to go. He worked on the pistons a bit, filing down all the sharp edges on the dish and valve reliefs. Spent the better part of yesterday evening working on the blocks removing all the galley plugs so we can clean out the oil passages and run it thru the hot tank one more time.

With some luck the short blocks should be together by the end of next week, I'll try and get some pictures.
