Rick Milam (another Scrambler owner and our friend Dave) made progress on my motor rebuild. Looks like the rings I ordered were not the right ones. Off to buy yet another part.

It is hard to believe how many parts I have had to buy to make this “easy swap” work. I pocked up new rings and a new to me oil dipstick tube since the old one was cracked. I somehow lost the smaller head bolts in my garage so I had to get new ones (again). Hopefully more work will be done on it this weekend. I am dropping the parts off with Rick tonight.

I can’t wait until this motor is in. Then I can get driveshafts and exhaust and drive it again.

Hey what gives ? At the end of the video in the credits it says it's Daves engine :rotfl:
Nah, it says it is mine. I am going to see if I can make it out there this weekend and assist.

I need to feel like I am doing some part of it.

Went to Rick’s to help but he was busy putting a lift on someone else’s rig so I just visited my parts
