Little update, I got the block back from the machine shop. Bought a used set of 243 heads. Bought bearings and rings. Removed the gas tank, transmission, front inner fenders. Sanded and painted the fenders. Also polished the valley cover. Its not a mirror finish but the best I could do with the amount of patience I have! Waiting on the bank account to catch up and/or some used items I have listed to sell before making more purchases. I figure I can get everything cleaned up and painted while I wait. I'll shoot some pics when something presents itself.
