That's quick work Wade - get the head pulled and see what the damage is yet?

I'm going to put it back together. I will be ordering the timing kit and head gasket this week. I'll also be taking the head I got from Mike to Quinn at Metric Wrench to get it hot tanked.

So I've been slacking on this project, but today made a little headway.
Got the pistons cleaned up.

Also got the cylinder head installed and torque down.

Tomorrow will be the timing chain kit. I would have installed the timing chain cover tomorrow also but I was shipped the incorrect rear main. I hope one of the auto parts stores here in town has one.
