Is that tar or ink that you're using for brake/clutch fluid?

Found a sweet stainless flexible tube for the WG Dump,
That'll help with the vibrations and cracking...

Default Finally back on it...

Well I finally got back to the Miata engine.
Heres a nice 96 short block I got from Redline Autosport In Kissimmee Fl .Redline Auto Sports | Your source for 1990-1997 Miata Parts
He has great parts and very fair prices..
Super nice guy.
Anyway,
That I tore down and thoroughly cleaned and inspected,
All Inners are well within stock specs, and the rotating components will go out to Brevard Cylinder head for balancing..
Gonna get my parts from 5X...
New brass freeze plugs 30 and 35 mm from NAPA...
