Do they no longer offerv an overhaul gasket set?
It has to be much more expensive to buy individually packaged gaskets.

The aluminum parts that are castings, we polished up a bit and clear coated
with engine enamel, the new ceramic paint. So we will see how it holds up.

Block, heads and intake manifold will be Buick Engine Red.
Oil pan, valve covers, and misc. parts are gloss black.
Some accessories are matte black.
Aluminum castings that were polishable are clear coated.

LOL... and thanks.

The rod caps were stamped with the piston number/position before removing
them from the block so, location AND orientation was confirmed. The wrist
pins were in great shape so I did not remove them. I just oiled them after
cleaning the piston rod assemblies.

The numbers on the piston tops are the masses of the piston rod assemblies.
Since the high to low masses were within 6 grams and this is being rebuilt as
a daily drive stock engine. That was way more than good enough.

Today is work on the heads and get them installed. Rainy here today so
good day for the shop.

Did you paint the head gasket surface or is that a photo illusion?

Illusion, the LED Shop lights and the iPhone, give off some odd appearances
at times. The block was caustic boiled, so it has that dark gray appearance,
I used to scotch brite and penetrating oil to make sure I had a good clean
surface and checked for flatness, the block and heads are nice and flat.

While this is my first V8 rebuild it is not my first engine rebuild.

Made some good progress today. Leaving for Utah in the AM so it will be mid
week before we are back at it.

Learned something new today I did not know. After you install the rocker with
hydraulic lifters you have to let them relax. I did not know that. No damage
done, reading the manual helps. Just never knew that. 60 year old tractor
don't have those fancy things. But I don't have to set 16 valve clearances
either!!!
