    I figured this motor might last longer if I left it dirty and ugly looking.

    Hmmm... I'm supposed to be driving this thing tomorrow.

    Another late start to the day means another late finish... but it's in and grungy looking.

    Putting a front clip on alone is kind of a pain, but this one went on easy.

    I made sure to not add antifreeze, not to clean any parts, use used clutch components and make it look as ugly as possible. Theres a chance this motor will actually last. Maybe.

    I think you are right, the uglyer it is and the dirtier it is the least problems you will have out of the motor. Once you get it in and running right, then you can think about taking it to a car wash w/ some engine degreser. Then again that would be more work, so just leave it. :D

    I was wondering why the tires rubbed. Just kidding. I mounted it all properly. Well, minus a few bolts I haven't put in yet.

    Only thing I can't figure out is the intake on the motor. The motor came out of a 25ft motorhome. It was rebuilt 12000 miles ago. Someone put an Edelbrock Streetmaster single plane aluminum intake on the motor. :confused:
