Well since winter has decided to come early, thought it was about time for this thread. The old girl was a bit rebellious this summer, but did get me to all the shows I wanted. I have a few things to take care of, (1) blown head gasket, (2) broken timing cover, (3) leaking oil pan, (4) new OGTS starter, etc. etc ....currently the engine block and pistons only, are attached to the trans, too cold for the garage today,& OSU played, so I dug out another timing cover 12 bolt, stripped off the blk. paint, and polished it. I prefer the natural look, nice polished alum., with high temp clear coat, the water pump is next . I hope to reinstall the oil pan & timing cover this week. PITA cleaning up the engine compartment, but she needs it, a little oily WHAT ARE YOUR WINTER PROJECTS ???
