    Well Dead, I know what you're going through. If I could rip out my spine and replace it with polyurethane bushings, I'd do so. Wrecked it with 30 years of logging as the main job. Thought I was hot shit dead lifting a thousand pound stem (500 lbs) to kick a choker under it. Now, I can't lift a head out of an engine compartment. Percocets and Vicodine for desert. I think the addiction is your brain just wanting to stop dealing with pain.
    Was on a really bad choo-choo for a while. What rescued me was acupuncture and foam mattress.
    You'll go through this for a few days. Switch over to Aleve for now till the pain's edge wears off. Much better than dealing with a near life time with this crap. It'll be over before you know it. Hang in.

    Finally pulled my engine out of the shop today. Finished doing some last minute prep work and primed the oil pump again. Took a turkey injector and shot a little marval oil in the cylinders and turned it over a few times. Once I put the plugs in it is a lot harder to turn over by hand. Probably pull the plugs to make it easier to turn it aligning the converter bolts. I'll be installing the engine tomorrow. About time. Engine been sitting on the stand for about a year. I'm ready to hear it growl

    I warned you that if you built it too pretty it would become a garage ornament.
    Get that thing in there and we want pictures and videos!

    Project Maverick. I feel the need, the need for speed

    Break it in dry, don't oil the cylinders.

    Finally put my engine in the truck today. I tried to post some pics here but couldn't get the pictures to resize to post. I posted some pics on the FB R/T page.
