The engine and trans assembly are out and the trans/xfer is cleaned up.
I'll do the reseal and swap of the 4 speed transmission onto the donor lc transfer case today.

Tomorrow I will inspect, reseal the keeper transfer case, and install it onto the 5 speed.

I'd guess that's all I have time for this weekend. I hope to have the donor lc back on the road next weekend and hopefully sold and out of the shop.

Looking good. Humor me on this, but next time you are going to clean something aluminum, try spraying it well with shout spot and stain remover. Neighbor showed me this trick on a yota truck motor. It works amazingly well, just let it soak in for a few minutes before spraying it off. (to preserve domestic tranquility, be sure to replace your significant others supplies when you raid the laundry room). It isn't magical, still need to scrape the big chunks off first.

I'll have to try that before I tear it down today. Good idea.

Upon inspecting the head setup (by the shop I use for machine work) I found the seat spring pressures above the spec by 15#.
He had used sbc springs and that is ok, but in the case of my 100% stock build, the cam will only suffer from higher than normal wear at best. So I rechecked the installed height and installed the oem spec spring. Yeah probably over kill.

from the factory:
installed height 1.693" (43mm)
spring load @ installed height: 70#

the photos represent the height checking process and the sbc spring on my load cell. 85# @ 1.693"

the sickness I have is from building engines/cars for a long time, and getting tired along the way of not having the right tool.

Or getting tool envy and wanting to fix it.

Progress over the holidays.
Waiting for rocker shaft and a replacement arm. One had some unfortunate wear that I could not ignore.
Also a cracked intake manifold. I will see about a good used replacement and weld repair of the old one.
Oh and the ugly yellow filter is only a nos one I got with my travelette that I use to keep things clean while building engines.

Up and running very well. Ready for smog test.Do we have an idea when I should arrive? Sure things are a tad upside down. I could head down early or later. Got stuff that won't handle heat real well. Name:  IMG_2804.jpg
