I now have the rear mounter water temp and oil pressure senders plugged in, and the coolant hoses and t-stat connected to the water pump. It’s kinda neat seeing the now-clean aluminum head sitting atop the darker and dirtier cast iron block.

What’s Left:

  • Intake manifold and gaskets
  • Rear coolant hoses
  • Charge pipe
  • Downpipe
  • Fuel lines/injectors and spark plugs
  • all those wires and vacuum lines

Slowly getting there.
