We had to heat the block up between 140 and 180 degrees to get the sleeves to go in easy.





We also put the sleeves in the freezer to help them slide in better.



This pesky little creature just wouldn't take a hint a leave.  So we helped it leave.



Making sure we put some high temp silicone at the top of the sleeve to prevent any more leaks.



Put the crank in and I had to go.  Senior put the main on and torqued them done.... Well that's what he said he was going to do.....  Did you JL222?



The pistons and cam should be in the block before I can get back to help on Sat.

Pistons and cam are in, just have to set the timing and button it up.  A little work on the clutch and maybe get the engine back in today?

Took a little time to get the cam timming set.  It is now done and the heads are on as well.  We put two petcocks in just in case it freezes at Elmo.  Here are some pictures.

We got the engine back in the car today. 



A couple pictures of our blower drive just like a funny car cuppler.





We also got the blower system in as well.



Need to do get a broken stud out of our tranny and put in a new stud.  Then we can put the tranny back in and fire it up.  Hopefully we will get it fired up Sat.  Will keep you all posted.  Still trying to make Elmo.

Here is a picture of one of our trannys that needed some repair.

There are four studs inside to mount a hydrolic throw out bearing.  One of the studs was leaking so we had to replace it.  If you look close enough you can see that they had to be ground down so that a bearing could fit inside of it.





Some more pictures of the planetary gears.







We got the engine put back together. 





Tomorrow we just need to get those trannys and drive line back in, fill with oil and gas and then hopefully start it up.

This little hose cost us about 2 hours of time.  This is one of the hoses that connects our hydrolic throw out bearing for our clutch.  After we install all of the trannies this is supposed to be tie wrapped so it doesn't hit the clutch.  Well we forgot and yes it got caught on the clutch and leaked.



The new line is now in place.



This is what the lines are supposed to look like. 



All of the trannies are all in.



We are back on track and started the car tonight.  It is still very rich, we based our set up on the old engine.  So far we have been off.  We will lean out all the jets and give it another start tomorrow and see how close we get.  Tonight we got 20lbs of boost at about 70 degrees.  At 75% eficient the blower temp. should be about 275 degrees.  We had a blower temp of 189 before the intercooler and 103 after the intercooler.  We think that our sensors can't react fast enough from jazzing the throttle, but we are happy to get an 86 degree delta drop with just water and no ice.  I have a video that I will try to get loaded tonight, and post here later.

You fotos have been EXCELLENT throughout your entire post..

Now I hope for no wind, good bite and a great set of numbers when u get to the Lakes.

Don't let Arley oil down the launch pad. If Jay shows up.........save the car for some other year.

That's funny.  The only thing that Jay has anything to do with is his advertisement on our car.

The video I have is lengthy.  Normally my computer will break the video down into many segments.  This video was broken down into three and the one with the engine starting multiple times is 15 minutes long.  I will post it soon and you can always just click the video off when you get bored with it.
