Frank they had to redo #1 & 2 babbit bearings. Suspected cause lack of lubricant.

Well, I'm glad when mine was done they used plenty of assembly lube or primed pump or whatever before giving it to me.  I don't remember doing anything out of ordinary before starting.  In fact, I believe the last shop ran it first for a bit before delivery.

Chet, I'm sure it will go well this time.   frank

I'll let you know.  Picking up the motor this Saturday.  Fingers cross.  They checked out all the oil ports and they are all free from debris.  Clear through the mains and crank.  I really need this to work out OK.  I need a shot of enthusiasm to get going again !!

Prep for Paint - Continued.

Well I finally stopped procrastinating and got a little work done.
Due to the length of this task and the number of pictures I posted a link to the blow by blow description below:
