That being said the old girl out back said. " remember me?"
So that project is on hold for the proper parts, and the f 350 is now headed back to the front burner.

All packed up until I can get the proper parts, on to the next project. Guess I'll have to start another thread on that one, the. Clutch decided it didnt like the 7 year vacation.

The 2 rods finally showed up, so I pressed them on. They are in the block and torqued. She turns over just fine!.
Changed direction on the heads though
Went with 3 bar GT 40 cast iron ford heads. I have another project for the aluminium heads.
Project is still on hold, but I will put the engine together in my spare time.
