    I strive to keep an orderly shop and work area. Put stuff away so I can find it next time. 9 times out of 10 I can't find it again.

    I must confess, I can waist 20-30 minutes looking for parts, tools, half warm beers, (sure sign of alcoholism, have 2 beers open) that I just had in my hands.
    I must be a quarter inch from Alzheimer's !!
    As for any Rusty Iron Junkie's bench, mine builds up to the point, in a fit of frustration,
    I STOP EVERYTHING....... Clear it off....
    And it's like a Archeological Site Dig.......
    peel, it down in layers, first is untangling the cords of the power tools, then finding all sorts of nuts, bolts, parts, that you gave up on and went out and got more, then hand tools, especially sockets........And "There my Beer"...two days gone flat.....
    Well, you all know the Drill.......LOL

    liars, all of them, they may have hit the floor but quantum fields won't tell you whether that floor is under your car or in a shop you used 10 years ago.

    Sam has that tool and Ziggy is working on it. Al is off chasing a skirt like usual.

    such a joker, we all know that my benches don't really exist and that the stuff is held in place by a quantum field (which also explains how my tool can be there one second, the no where to be found the next....

    I found this online as an option to speed things up. Not sure about quality as reviews are scarce. Price is right at $322 though.

    Here it is as of today. I have pruned out everything I don't need and added a couple of wires for fan control. Now I need to order some wire to extend the power wires and buy a fuse block and relays to complete the "new" harness. I'll need to shorten the O2 and MAF sensor wires once I get those located.

    The block and rotating bits are at a different machine shop so that the honing for the .005 over pistons can be done with a torque plate and the rotating bits can be balanced. I'm hoping to get that back next week. I returned these rockers because there was play (excessive clearance) between the bearing and the shaft:

    I'm leaning towards these as they will fit under the factory valve covers:
