Day 70

Well, I got my tins back from powdercoat and over the past couple of days have finalized the assembly of the engine.

The air cleaner had to be installed in reverse because it wouldn't fit the other way!  I don't know if this is going to bug me or if I'll find a different replacement.  I'm going to use it for now, it is an original piece, but not original to this type of engine...which is where my problem comes in.

The next step is to get it off the engine stand and install the flywheel, clutch disc, and pressure plate.  I also need to finish wrenching down the intake manifold bolts.  If you look closely you can see they rear facing nuts are very difficult to get at.  Waiting for some help with the heavy lifting and should be started soon!

Intake manifold is the grey piece, if you look at the larger pipe the nut is very hard to get at.
