JANUARY 8, 2011 - Tearing Down The Engine

Today consisted mainly of tearing down what's attached to the motor - with the exception of the heads - those will not be removed. Cleaned a few things in parts cleaner/wire wheel. It's hard to wrap our heads around how damn clean everything is inside the motor. No build up of anything, and hardly a thing in the bottom of the oil pan. There was a little, but hardly any considering the car is almost 40 years old. Anywho...picture time!

Intake is off!

Clean as a whistle!

Looks like a engine temp sensor that screws into the manifold

Nope....that's in the top of the intake. The hole this things screws into goes nowhere. Just a dead hole.

I agree that it's probably one of the idiot light sensors. Probably temp.

JANUARY 9, 2011 - Intake manifold blast and paint.

I was not home on Sunday(1/9) but my dad felt like doing some work on his own, so he sandblasted and painted the intake manifold - VERY happy with the outcome. He threw some paint on the original ignition coil, as well.
