It's been awhile since I've posted. But I keep on truckin...at a slow pace
Ive been working on the motor, which is about done. I was having some doubts after I bolted the head down to the block, some oil started leaking down the sides of the block. The only oil used in the rebuild was the grease for the installation of the cam and the oiling of the head bolts. The block was the only part not needing to be taken apart and rebuilt, it was perfect when I pulled the motor apart, the head was the issue. My only guess as to where maybe any extra oil came from was the holes for the head bolts in the block...I had the block upside down for almost this whole build.
Here is the motor finally bolted down

When I pulled the motor...actually when I got the car, i saw a pretty good oil leak on/all around the oil pump. I cleaned all the oil off around the pump to try and find the source, everything looked good, until I checked the gasket in the middle of the pump, pretty old and needs a new gasket. That is on order along with a new oil pressure sender and bulbs for my dash.

I emailed the paint shop, hoping to get them to come to the house to give me a quote on the work I need done. I'll make a video soon and post it up
