Not too difficult.
He had two specialty tools and an arbor press.
Soooooo. not happening in the drive way today.

But I found one fitting that needed snugging so maybe leak will slow down to a seep.




I've given up on the billet pulleys. Can't find anything even close.
Spray Paint!! For the Win!!

Look into electrolysis. Cuts the brush time dramatically. I only brush large flakes of rust on items that fit in my tote. I've gotten so lazy I don't even degrease parts first. I will wipe down heavy oil or grease otherwise the vat takes it off. My pulleys came out looking like new bare steel.
I just pressure wash items. Soak for 24 hours or so in the vat. Heavy rust takes longer. Degrease then pressure wash. Let dry thoroughly and treat with a coat of coroseal. Gets rust in the nooks and crannies. Not perfect for everything but ease of use is phenomenal.

Duh! I didn't even think of it. What the heck? I'm almost done though. Just a few accessory brackets left.

Machine work is completed on the engine. They are starting assembly late this week.
Body is being stripped. For some reason I got bumped by a Camaro....
