Project 2 - Engine
The engine was R&R's by Precision Machine in Lodi, CA. They took care of the engine removal and installation, engine compartment detailing, and engine rebuild. Overall quite satisfied with their work. Here's some pic's showing their work:
<<< The nose is looking a bit light in this picture as the engine has just been removed. The transmission is still in the car and was not rebuilt. The hood was removed for easier access.
Without the engine, detailing the engine compartment will be so much easier. You can see the wood block propping up the transmission.                                  >>>
<<< A close up of the engine compartment. The AC compressor is still there (discharged) as well as the alternator, intermittent wiper govenor, and powe brake booster.
