pretty things and progress on my motor.
Starting the 'other' 2.8 Chevrolet motor 1-23-10
Re-put-together with parts from the 2.8 I shot with my hakim, this engine had a spun rod bearing which messed up the crank, and rod. I re-assembled it with the crank from the other engine, and one rod, and fabricated an adapter plate to mount a 2bbl carb in place of the fuel injection system. A few issues, but it does start and run. Don't know what I will do with this engine....in the spring maybe rev it until it blows, or shoot at it.
