Its slow going now that the cold has set in, putting the final pieces of the engine together, longest most time consuming thing I think is waiting on parts to get here. Ive fallin behind on my schedule I was suppose to have the engine and trans. Done before the new year and yet I don't have either done yet

Ill have pictures up soon of where I stand soon.

like wise other peoples builds definitely get me up and wanting to get things done to mine, only thing holding me back right now is the very cold temps of the unheated garage :/

Foo - the motor looks great. Out of curiosity, is the water pump supposed to be the cast color versus painted. I will be detailing my engine soon, and wondered what color the water pump, oil pan, intake bolts, and valve cover bolts should be..
