I decided to ring in the new year with new rings
I have been putting this off for a while now and decided to just jump in there today. I took my time as I pulled the old girl apart and made several notes for the order of how to re-install. My memory is not what it used to be so I also took pictures.
I documented all the clamp positions so I can quickly button here up with no throttle binding. I also made a reminder for leaving the inner radiator mounts ON the radiator and remove them from the frame mount. Just makes it easier to get them out and back in. Also the order in which the fans come out, removal of the left engine mount to get the water elbow out after the TBs have been removed.
Found a really neat item to keep all the valve stuff sorted out and clean of dust. The big pack was at Costco and the candy is also very good. This will hold the buckets, valve springs and keepers when I break down the head for a clean up. Below that is the tray I put the cams and gears into.
Got the her ready for tomorrow when I will pull the crankcase cover, timing cover and cylinder head.
