Looks great!

(I went through a similar phase when I just wanted my engine to look done.)

But I wasn't building engine parts from scratch.  Holy cow.

I have a huge blog like post on the CJ2A page but I thought my 3A  friends might like to see how my Hot Rod Willys engine is coming along.

After much frustration I think I have it put together right. (had trouble with dimples in the tappet bores, Trying to get my crank end play correct, And a half dozen other things including the back of the pulley rubbing on the timing cover "lips"

Anyway after all the frustrations assembling the long block I thought I should do something to get me inspired so I bolted on some of my DIY Bling and made up me wires.

And the timing cover and its new timing marks I put on with my dial indicator and a little file.

I am currently whittling away on a couple pieces of aluminum making the intake manifold. had to redsign it in the middle of making it when I went to order the two 1.25" sch 40 aluminum pipe elbows that will become the runners and found out on the order page the place that makes them has a little $100.00 min order!!! they cost like $16.00 each. SO I had to find a different source and they have a slightly different radius. Which actually worked out well as it helped gain me some room I needed.

I'll show some photo's of that when I get it done. And then its on to the fancy header I am scratch building.
