Well... hereâ€™s the trucks current state
real basic aren't they :rock: pick up a short block from the earlier post and get it done mate. Plan B get the crank reground put the block in a cooker and buy some forged pistons. Good, project and all from there is forward...
Block was sent in, the crank has been turned .010 thou , and waiting on parts to start showing up, I think they said last piece was the cam since it has some surface scars on it
Tony built mine, good to go , I have 2500 miles on mine and 1500 on the transmission and brakes. Weekend warrior these days...
I’m in no hurry , it’s been down for a year, and it’s almost winter time here, so I wouldn’t be driving it in the snow, as long as it’s done by spring time ! Oh hell Yea
Decided to pick up the valve covers and Intake today so I can powdercoate them, good thing I removed the baffles, I did not know it had the sponge in the under side , can I replace it?
I would if you can find it. I'm sure it breaks down like most other foam does. 13 yrs old already.
Yea it feels like thick foam, not like a sponge
It is EXACTLY THE SAME "stuff" they use for filter-media on saltwater fish-tanks.
If it isn't available at a dealer, you can always count on your local pet-supply house to help you source materials for your Viper engine.
Clean the bolts/holes with solvent and use some thread-locker so they don't fall out after you bolt the plate back on.
Yea when I installed baffles on my dakota, I used loctite on them also !
I thought it looked familiar.
Got the valve covers Murdered out for Now, might be block sanding the letters tomorrow to make them pop
Well I got 1 somewhat done
Here you go guys, might need a little more polishing, but for me they look ok !
wow they are black...:rock:
No more red !
