engine build and paint endeavor

Well after the engine drop the CIS came off. This time it was quicker than when I pulled it with the engine in the car.

Well I am going to save pictures of the Cold start and air meter plug. Since I miss labeled it but fixed it. Anyway ... cold start valve plug bluer and on the right of the photo. Tape on harness. The harness gives a clue too as to the directions the wires diverge.

Looks good to me, even wear. I would scour it with 3m pads and clean it with brake clean.

I hear you but for under $100 you could have that refaced.

Tap in a new main seal as well.

Took mine to a local machine shop. $65 ten years ago. Told this before but I said to the shop owner "You have to be careful because there is a step in there". He looked at me straight faced then a little grin appeared, like this ain't my first rodeo.

Appreciate the input, I’ll be splitting the case (sometime this year ). New main seal for sure. Will consider flywheel refaced too now.

Well the after look is better, not quite spotless though.
Wonder if more cleaning is worthwhile?

Progress, slow but some.

There is a crank under the flywheel. No sign of leaky main seal. Definitely easier to remove FW bolts with impact wrench.

Cleaning it more will make for a better picture, but after going down a few dirty roads in the rain and it will look bad again. The temptation is so great to put effort into stuff like this, but it gets ugly fast and you canít see it once installed.

Well nearly complete with engine assembly. Coming off the stand and meeting the transmission next week. And it looks like I put my coil up higher than it was before.

Hereís a group of photos of some steps along the way.
