I have been working on some additional detail work. Cleaned up the throttle body by sanding down the casting lines. Did the same on the A/C , Alternator and Power Steering Brackets. It does not take much effort for these brackets to look a lot better. I will follow up with a Cast Silver paint.

Here is a tip I learned from some top LS Engine builders. A small hole can be drilled on the bottom side of the lifter retainers. This helps to drain oil faster under high RPM.





ARP head studs are now in. Just waiting for the heads to be completed.

Yup, I've recommended that to a few folks before but I just went with Morel link bar lifters and you eliminate the trays all together. No more oil pooling up there lol.

What is your valvetrain consisting of?

Looks very good btw.

Got the PFADT engine mounts bolted up today with ARP bolts. These things are a lot lighter than the stock ones.

That's the nicest water pump I've ever seen. It will look so awesome mounted on the block.

Thanks!
I was unsure on what color to go with at first. I have over 5 hours of grinding, sanding and finishing it. With the Chevy Orange block and other silver pieces, I think the black on the water pump will look great.

I imagined it would be black when you first mentioned it. Great color choice.
