    OK guys,

    I actually have some updates on this thing, and I didn't even have anything bad happen! can you actually believe it??? [​IMG][​IMG] (that is since the fire this morning)

    I ran into a guy I know that wrenches, and he is between jobs so he is helping me finish up my project. everything is progressing well, and I got the Vortec Heads on the new engine with the cam etc. and most of the other engine disasembled.

    man this engine is definately NOT the stock engine. block is not stock, and there are some other signes too. those heads have been leaking, and by what we've found so far some complete moron put this engine together. man we have to use some <font color=blue>serious</font color=blue> cheaters on all the heads bolts to get the stupid things out!

    all I gotta pull of the old engine is the oil pan, and I will be ready to put the distributor and all the other other stuff back on the engine.

    <font color=green>man it finally seems like I'm starting to get some good breaks. I think I could have done this OK by myself, and I will definately be doing Insane Ewok by myself. however, it is nice to see this kinda project done once (at least) by somebody who actually knows the game.</font color=green>

    in the morning I'm going to take this hoist back to autozone and make the moron's replace it. I also bent the snot out of my fan blades so I'm gonna make them replace that to or they are gonna have some problems on their hands.

    we should have the other engine in this thing tomorrow and mostly reconnected without a problem. wish me luck guys! (the good kind and not the bad kind like I've been getting most of the time lately! [​IMG])
