whew! motor is done!

By birds4ever

Finally! The ol' poncho will live again. Got the finishing touches put on the motor and I am very pleased. Check out the album for the updated pics. Hope you enjoy!
I'll be putting her on the breakin stand this next week hopefully and see how she runs! I'll check for leaks, set timing, adjust carbs, and then re-torque the heads. I will use an old pair of headers so I dodn't blue-out the new ceramic coated headers. Then she'll be ready to go back into the chassis!
