Radiator. It's no wonder these things are notorious for running hot, it's tiny.

This last shot of the engine on the stand next to the car says it all. Not that bad a job, took me roughly a day.

Next step is to remove the transmission, drive shaft, rear side glass, brake booster and crap from the engine bay. Collect all the wires in the bay wrap 'em up and bag 'em. Take out the seats then off for paint.

Then the dreaded engine tear down.

Plans

Engine bay is going to be painted along with the rest of the car and some minor rust issues dealt with.

As you can see from the pictures the motor has been leaking oil from several places. Also have major blow by so it's pretty tired and in need of rebore, rings. Crank needs to be checked along with bearings. Have a refurbished head with 292 performance cam up at Marcus Glarners. Might do 9.5:1 pistons but with the price of gas where it was this summer I'm not so sure I want to commit to putting Sunoco 94 into it all the time.

Big job for sure but I couldn't keep driving it the way it was.

Center bearing is toast so there's one more thing for the list.

Just some odds and sods now before it goes to the body shop. Then it'll be time to tackle the engine.
