So i didnt get as much done this weekend as i was hoping to. Started off, as Shawn mentioned, figuring out he cracked a pistion in the m50 block last year. this explains the bent valve and low compresion in cylinder 5.

Then i realized i didnt get the right gasket kit for the head rebuild. which means i couldnt get the head back together. so i decided to at least get the bottom end ready to go. i had to swap everthing over from shawns m50 block to the spare m50 block we have. Of course i first had to paint it Eurotrash colours

I have the right gasket kit coming in thursday so hopefully have the engine ready by next weekend.
