One tip.* Use*six or eight point*box end*wrench to tighten or loosen the nut on a rocker.* Way less chance of coming off and rounding the corners.
*Thanks JD right on with that. I think I just put that wrench on there to show what I was doing.
Next week I will do the break in. Only because I didn't bring the oil for an oil change.
*A couple of the boys were on board when I fired her up and were suprised that I didn't have to bleed the injectors.
I guess that the fuel pump being full of fuel was all that was required to get it to light off. As I said before all I did was pump up the priming pump.
I know the injectors were empty because I had to pull the caps off to change the O rings.
This was a big job for me I hope you can see my apprehension when you look at how far down I had to take the engine to start rebuilding.
The first pic is where the water pump*was to go.
Next is the block and pistons port and starboard
the last*2 pic's show the finished product including the rebuilt heat exchanger. from a coolant leak to a major rebuild. Wheww!!
