The engine block was starting to have surface rust so I had to pant it. I went on the cheap with Dupli-Color engine paint. Would have liked to have go with eastwoods. But im on a budget. Should have the rest of the parts to put the engine back together with in the next two weeks. Sorry for the crappy video!
Ford 300 Inline 6 Rebuild Part 3
Me rambleing. Got the pistons in, having issues with the stud on the #4
main cap under the oil pump not clearing the oil pump. Got the wrong
engine mounts, 1970 motor mounts wont fit on a 1992 engine block. The HEI
distributor instructions tell you not to run a high vol oil pump with the
distributor. Yep I'm having fun!

Ford 300 engine buildup
This is a description of the buildup of my ford 300 engine. My goal is to
increase the air flow of the overall engine, not so much for mass airflow,
but smooth airflow for overall power and tourque. My hope is that i can
get power similar to a stock ford FE block engine.(352, 360, 390) I hope
to get similar tourque, however I think it may be harder to match up with
horse power. We will see.

Cloyes adjustable timing set in advanced position, 9.0:1 compression with
~.038 quench, mild port, smoothed chambers with clearance around Exhaust valve and all necessary machine work.
