Motion being made, if not actual progress..
Kind of fun to see two engine together. Stripping ever item that is to be yellow zinc plated of both engines and body. Several hundred items, taking pictures of each part removed and hardware that goes along with it. Ring gear and starter gear especially was trashed. Power washed engine yesterday, need to scrub remaining gunk off. Then swap good transmission on.
Parts arrive soon to do timing chain, valve stem seals and adjust lifter clearances.
