  1. Yes! Not mentally or emotionally! But I'm sure I'll figure it out. That is - unless you think I can reuse the old ones? They have wear you can feel with your fingernail.
  2. 02.22.21 This weekend was less about the engine swap and more about restoring/repairing the 720 itself. Reason being that I'm still waiting on my wrist pin bushings on the rod end (the bushings have pretty serious wear, otherwise I'd run them) so I don't want to assemble the bottom end quite yet. Even then, there's plenty to be done with the intake manifold, valve cover, head, accessories, etc. before we can really start chugging along with the rebuild and mounting the motor.
