    Hey all just need a little help with out having to get out bolt after bolt to try and remember what bolt is what size.

    I need to mount my spare engine on a stand so i can tear it down and build it back to like new state.
    I used the bolts to put the temp motor in the car so i can still drive that one.

    Anyone know the bots are for the motor.
    From what i do remember thou is that the bolt for the rear head is slightly different than the front 2 bolts where when mounted in the engine bay transmission side. I am mounting the engine on the side that the transmission would sit. Any one got the right MM pitch and thread?

    Ok That was fun I should really have those bolts labeled. Now the fun part. This is my first excursion in building a motor. It going to take time and money which time i have but the money not so much so this is a 8-9 month build.

    My end goal will be to plumb all the turbo stuff to it correctly and have the motor ready to drop back in. I had the turbo running on the car already but the rings are letting a lot of compression go and I didn't want to grenade that motor.

    Mostly looking for some friendly advised and maybe even some places that sell whole kits. Really want to refresh this motor.

    Would a port and polish be worth the money since I will have the block torn down anyways. Got a local guy that will do it for $150 if its broke down.
    He already did the clutch plate which is on its last go round but I will be replacing that in this build.

    For those that have done this what are some Do's?



    What are some don't dos?
