I used to buy a lot of equipment at auction I was always wary of
"2 quart overhauls"

Got a bunch of small stuff done yesterday. Ready to hoist and install today,
But ended up having to make 2 trips to town yesterday, the first planned trip
went as planned, got home and Matt was cleaning up the starter to get it ready
to reinstall and discovered the following... So back up to town for a new starter
got a new bypass hose and serpentine belt at the same time, might as well...

Oooooooooh, not good! Years ago I had a '79 Dodge Magnum with a 318 that ate up starters on a regular basis. I could plan on changing the starter at least once if not more times a year. Never could figure out the issue causing it but the windings in them just seemed to burn up.

Most got the engine in the truck today...

2 transmission bolts are almost all the way in. Engine mounts are in.

It got dark, we got tired and the mosquitos got hungry...

Okay, re-reading some of the comments, this is Matt's project, except for
some sandblasting and painting, I don't work on it unless he is working on
it and he is in school all day and then has Football and then toss in some
Navy recruiter meetings as well. But we have been putting in time this
week.

Engine is physically installed, flexplate bolted to the trans, cover in place,
starter on, everything torqued per specs. Distributor installed, working on
wiring harnesses. Next few things are the exhaust manifolds, fuel injectors,
fuel rails and accessories then on to the throttle body, then the front of the
engine, accessories, power steering (new pump and lines, the old pump has
some brazed in lines that were going to fail soon). Radiator etc.

Since the kid is driving it to school and back or work and back that is about
12 miles each way, that should be several hundred miles pretty quick. I might
take it on a longer run. I was going to change the oil between 100-200 miles
just to get any crap out, filter change too and then just run it like normal.
