    They are brand new from Amazon less than a week old. Can’t return them but can probably get a refund if I complain.

    No shit? Was heading to Lowe’s which is right by Walmart so maybe I will pick some up from there.

    50s today but all that stuff is in a conditioned space so not exposed to the elements. I’ll try and soak them.

    Yeah I don’t know what it is. 2 of those bottles are band new and yet only let me use half of the bottle before they gave it up. I had a single bottle of PB blaster for years but it seems like all the recent stuff is garbage and make it nearly impossible to get your money’s worth.

    Trans front cover gasket is NLA? Cause I got one with the front and rear seals. Got it all done and buttoned back up. Now onto the exhaust manifold and painting or coating it. Anyone got any recommendations?

    Thanks Mike that worked like a charm. Once I got the surfaces all cleaned I noticed there is only one spacer/shim is that expected?

    Anyone know a trick to get the front cover off a trans to replace the gasket and seal? I soaked the shit out of it with PB blaster over night but it does not want to give up the ghost. Tried whacking it through the clutch fork opening with a screwdriver and piece of wood to no avail either.

    Not even sure that is right? The one on eBay goes completely around the block. Either way I guess it doesn’t really matter. Yeah dual Mikuni 40mms.

    That was my plan but the bolt kit I bought only came with fuel pump block off plate bolts. I could go electric as that is what it is before but was trying to keep it simple. I know those fuel inlets are facing the wrong direction. PO must have ran the fuel line behind the head and I have to buy a 90 facing the other direction if I want to run the line in the front. I thought it was supposed to be in the front anyway? Especially if I run a mechanical pump? I have a black powder donated cover on my l16 I can use and the one that came with the engine is black but tore up. I spent some $$$ with Riley as well but I think more with Taka/Kyusha House than anywhere else. It’s a mikuni intake.

    Well finding all types of surprises with all the shit I bought but no mind as I am not anywhere closer to putting this engine in. At least it looks good. what color valve cover? I like red but with a blue truck going to look like Superman.

    Pretty sure that is what this engine came out of but has a u60 head on it.
