Another WideOpenThrotle 1979 Pontiac Trans Am post...
Here is our engine page! We've since had the block cleaned, bored, honed, and decked. We also had the valve guides on the heads milled down to accept the new valve seals. All of that cost about 200 bucks, and the guy does excellent work! Hope you like it. Also got some valves for Christmas, so we'll be able to assemble the heads. Next thing is head gaskets, then an oil pump , and a water pump.
Here are a few pictures of the motor after we started to tear it down. I kinda sat there for a while, but now we're makin' some progress!
After we got it back from cleaning:
Here is the block (sorry about the crappy quality)
Well, we ordered about $1,990 worth of engine parts yesterday, and it looks like we're gonna order another $500 today. Hopefully our motor will be built by the end of November! I'm excited!
All the stuff...
