Is it just me but I struggle to disassemble the rod caps from the rods. I understand that it is important to remove them straight and equal distance from the rod. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. I think there is a tool (which I do not have) that expands the rod from the cap. I also struggle with the reassembly in the block. Jeff

I was debating about posting this car because of the price but it looks clean and well maintained. First impression; the seller seems like an honest person based on his description of the car. I noticed it has black plates which indicates it is a original Ca. car. Jeff

It is easy to spend money you don't have but much more difficult to reduce spending. I wish Congress would be included in no pay during the shut down. Jeff

Congratulations on the new house. Are you going to epoxy coat the floor of the two garages. I am looking for a possible retirement home in St George Utah. I told the real estate agent I want a 4 car garage with an attached house. Jeff

140 motor that will use .040" Seal Power forged pistons (coated short skirts). The box calls for a min of .001" piston to cylinder clearance. This seems too tight to me so I decided to get some opinions. Thanks Jeff
