Thank the Fedex truck and Customs agents, I now have a motor.

My paper work was in order when examined and the plastic lug with my lump was released for delivery. It actually beat me home from vacation and was waiting at the shop when I drove by. Weighing 142 pounds, the package took a couple guys to load and unload. The top plastic covering was all retaped with USCustoms tape.

Now I'll can the HD trash talk and get down to business. Pics in a bit, I killed my phone.

Been too busy to play in the shed with Bertha, my duties at GL now occupy me full time...
Since I am home with the crud and running a 102-104 fever, I can at least comment on my lack of progress. The UK motor has a scratch on one case cover and is missing some hardware, like the cover was pulled to inspect for damage, so I prolly gotta get some gaskets.


Luckily the motor came with a full set of coolant lines, cause my top line to the radiator is blown and has a 10" rip down its length. I am thinking headgasket went to cooling system overload, no coolant in the head(s) meant they were red hot when the coolant line exploded, front cyl got a big dose of coolant in the K&N and a smaller dose made it to the second cyl. The intake tracts are covered in a thick white crust deposit, like minerals from water.
