Finally found the time to get some pics posted up. Got the shortblock disassembled and pressure washed & cleaned. Pistons not yet cleaned.
No pistons were harmed from the P to V issues.
Crankshaft in great shape. Still needs to be cleaned though.
Drivers side head on the bench and torn down. Kinda surprised this thing didnt smoke a little. Every umbrella seal was torn in 2. Looks like its gonna need a least a few guides as well.
Looks like Felpro gaskets will not work on this setup. Cant believe it was put together like this. Mr. Gasket's 5827 intake gaskets here I come!!! Exhaust ports are just as bad (not pictured).
A few of the goodies have started to show up.
Also planning on adding this to the coating arsenal.
