    Good luck with your project. Some quality father / son time will come out of it also. Nice garage too.

    That was my plan, I want to teach them this stuff as I never had a dad aroubd that did. This is my first time pulling an engine and ripping into it. I still have a lot to learn but the service manual is a godsend.

    Some more pictures for you guys. Got the engone completely torn down. From inspection I will need new valves both intake and exhaust, as they were too worn to reuse, valve guides, and seals. Ill be replacing the valve seats with the "unleaded" ones, water pump, oil pump and pick up, 264 cam, plugs wires, timing set, springs, keepers, retainers, all main seals, bearings, piston rings and i think that about it off the top of my head. Enjoy the photos!
