So here is the engine, mostly back together with the exception of the timing belt cover. Had to find a good deal on Epay for that part. There was no way I was gonna fork over fifty bucks for a new one. It’s made out of plastic on top of that. Anyway, this is another step in the process. Soon I will drop the motor in the car and then wheel it into the shop to defrost overnight before final assembly and (hopefully) a test run. It’s been a long process but most of the delay has been finding good deals on parts, waiting to get enough money together to buy the parts and then waiting on shipping and time to work on the thing. Whew! The end is near, though. Can you feel the excitement?
