Did you use any special product to de-grease the engine bay, or just lots of elbow grease? That is what I'm doing on my crew cab next weekend

A lot of "elbow grease". I took a bucket of water with dish soap, and scrubbed it. Used Simple Green on the bad parts, and an electric drill with a wire wheel on the worse parts. All-in-all...it took about 5-hours of work to get it clean, and that is not counting the time it took to tape it and paint it.

Don't worry about it being a 2 bolt main engine. 1) It won't make enough power to hurt anything. And 2) If you do wind up getting crazy and making a lot of power with it you can have splayed caps installed in it. They are stronger than the standard 4 bolt main caps.

Nice looking rig! sub'ed.

I got a bored out TBI with adjustable fuel pressure regulator, and matched fuel injectors from Vic Morse Machine.

Now I need to take care of some of the small details like running valve adjustment, set the IAC idle, and set timing.
