Today, more progress!!
-I fixed the paint job on the firewall.
-I started putting motor back together. I got the new springs on. I was looking and the ls1 retainers look as if they are taller which in turn preloads the spring less. It wasn’t much but I didn’t use them.
-I repainted the valve covers and intake. The paint didn’t hold to well, plus a few nicks and scraps.
– I almost got it ready to sit on the K member.
Just a few more hours of wrenching and she’ll be ready to install back to the car.
I’m also missing more bolts this time around…. I know I remember taking them off. I gotta make a parts run tomorrow anyway.
