My parents remodeled thier house a few months ago. My dad thought it would be a good idea to save a mirror....why, I dunno. My dad asked me to help him move it to his basement one day...I came over and we could barely lift the bitch, so that's where it has sat since.

cleaned the bay where you can see it. I cleaned the **** out of it, and then tapped it with some paint I have that's a very close match....looks good in person, will probably last 5 minutes after it's running again.





got the head back on the new block





just a pic of the oil return location

No I stick to bars that me and my friends make. They gotta weigh something close though.

seriously, it's f'in hot out.

but i feel stupid I took the belt off at least 10 times trying to get 16 teeth in between the marks, not 19. Finally I gave up and figured it HAD to be right...turns out it was, and i could have stopped on the first try.

Don't feel stupid until you take your car to a shop and they keep it for several months to see how mad you can get. Thats when you feel stupid.
