187 over the three days to be exact. There are some good shots and I'm hoping to do a very good write up on building an engine.

Engine and drive train are in the truck. The engine has oil all the way to the head and rockers. The accessories still need to be done, but Sascha will get to that during the day over this week.

As usual I'm out of town this week. Is anyone else free during the day to help Sash get this buttoned up?

It runs again. Sascha has been busy a few of hours each day getting everything put back together. Today we fired it up and did the cam break in. Here are Sascha and Theo taking it out for its first run around the block. Woohoo, it is moving under its own power again.

There was some slight weeping from a loose water pump bolt and heater hose and one bolt on the side cover - very minor. Upon return from the first run, the clutch fork and slave needed some adjusting. There is an intermittent whine or air whistle (you can hear it as they leave the garage) that we have not isolated yet.
