Yes I know I'd need help considering this is the first motor I've ever messed with plus I still have much to learn about building an engine, I'd appreciate all the help I can get lol. the oil pump is new with boundary engineering pump gears.

My old motor will be my engine build adventure. I'll rebuild it when I have time, I've got a fresh set of pistons and rodz plus new rings. plus it'll be nice having a spare motor around, just in case, God forbid this beast dies for some reason!

Found out that my Head gasket is screwed on my stock block..... so it's perfect time to install the built bottom.....
