    nice!

    ordered a mini starter, a few less pounds isnt a bad thing.... also ordered a fuel pump and got the water pump bolts.
    need to paint the passenger side header and then run out to pep boys for new gaskets. then I can mount them for good.

    those are definitely cool valve covers and the most expensive I have ever seen short of custom one offs. Yikes.

    bookmarked for sure. those are pretty, but out of budget right now. once I get it running and all the trouble shooting they will be on the list for sure. once the motor is done and its dialed in, the interior is gonna get more attention

    I reused the old one off the old motor. was in good shape and showed hardly any wear.

    rented the tools to swap the balancer. got that done in record time, remounted the crank pulley, mounted the power steering brackets and got the pump most fo the way bolted in, I cant find the baggie I put the bolts in... its somewhere in my garage, I'll find them.

    the driver side header is just on there to keep it in place and from being in a bad spot. I also got the flexplate to converter bolts on. water pump is painted, just need to get bolts to mount it.

    order/install starter
    install converter bolts
    TV cable linkage
    intall alternator
    get header gaskets
    paint passenger header
    install both sides permanatly

    waterpump bolts/install and pulley and fan/shroud
    new belts
    have radiator cleaned and reninstall
    new battery
    anything else I forgot
    ????
    profit

    plan on getting it fired up some time next month as budget/time allows.

    Don't forget fuel pump's pushrod and mounting plate. You can reuse your old ones if you want or go new. If you do use the old one, measure it's length to be sure it is not worn. 5.75" is what you want. New stock ones are about $10.00. They are the same throughout the 350's build life.

    As for new bolts, I have gotten many new bolts from Tractor Supply. $4.00/lb for grade 8 zinc coated. There are a couple sizes that many old cars use, but no one carries, 3/8"x1.25" and 2.25" lengths. There is a reason why I have never thrown away an old bolt that isn't stripped or bent.
