I thought it was time to clean up under the hood. I pulled the engine gave it a new set of rings and bearings along with a fresh coat of paint. My heater core has been leaking for a long time and I very rarely use a heater (the engine along with the exhaust right under the floorboard keeps it hot enough)so I removed the heater all together. Sure made for alot more room in the small compartment. Also repaired a bad battery area. I will update more later!
New update:
Well got the engine compartment painted using Eastwoods underhood paint. Very good color, similar to a Satin Black, however the durability leaves something to be desired. At $10 a can and using 2 cans to do a relatively small engine compartment covering it with 2 coats, I could scratch thru it with my fingernail
Next update: Got the engine back in with the new mounts fabricated by my friend Eric in West Virginia.Sells these at a very reasonable price. I'll list his contact info on my main page. Also got the radiator in using info from the H-body.org forum, V8astregt supplied most of the info for that. You can't beat the knowledge and input from 500+ members! Also installed my big block transmission crossmember, this thing is rock solid!
