    Starting to look good under the hood. I guess it was a good idea back in the day to do that for daily drivers down east to keep it from returning to the earth, a little elbow grease to get off is better that replacing panels. Not so much worry now that it gets cared for a bit differently, these aren't just an "old car" anymore, they are a cool piece of history.

    Wow, I'm impressed with how nice the paint is under the protective coating.

    The deck must've been in exceptionally great condition; I didn't see any pitting around the water holes, nor any fire ring compressions around the bores. Very nice. My 351W needed about 3 thou off one deck, and 4 thou off the other in order to clean them up for new gaskets.

    Very good shape. Low miles on it and were easy,babied miles.
    it was just old and tired. Oil rings were stuck in the groove of the pistons creating blow by.

    That's likely from sitting. So did you go 30 over on the cylinders?

    No doubt. We measured the cylinders and bore was not needed. When you bore them out the cost of machining and new pistons go through the roof.

    That is good. Your engine really didn't go through much, so that is very lucky.

    Thanks to my buddy James,he is massaging the heads for better flow.
    Nothing really crazy but make them flow better for efficiency.
    Also port matching to the gaskets and intake manifold....

    The archaeological dig for original paint beneath the Ziebart continues....impressive I must say.
    Still got a few days worth of cleaning and detailing to do..
