He may need to finish his project.

Well i cant say ive made any progress lately and its starting to get to me, so i started to strip the old paint off the pump so i could give it a fresh look for the new boat in progress. I dont know if its right or wrong but i used automotive paint stripper, the lazy mans sand paper.

 Next i think i will start to sand the saddle tanks, want to bring some shine back to it.  You know make it purdy ;D

now i got to finish the engine box and paint the transome, Sand some more on the floor and then put the pump back into it and work forward from there.

Everytime i work on this thing i feel like im lighting a candle in the wind. Not getting nothing done.

Anybody else feel like that? its frustrating :(

Check out my pic of the pump, I used three cans so far and have to go get more. Paint is some thick chit!  and i got the dremel out last night to shine up the impeller :o  No im not tweeking

Get some Jasco Paint and Epoxy Remover comes in a galon container at the hardware store, Brush it on set it in the sun and watch the magic begin, and if its cold use a heater or a heat gun.  Good Stuff.

I finally got my motor today ;D no more stressing. Jim came through for me and its appreciated ;)

Now the fantasy will have a BBF 460. Thats right you Ford fans there's gonna be one more out there :o
 Started to tear it down and found some things wrong, It wont turn over all the way so i figured its the timing chain no biggie. Nope it looks like it blew a gasket and then just started to rust up on the top of the cylinder. Looks like we are going to have to punch it out. But thats fine with me i planned on new pistons and rods anyways, anyone know where they have the best deals on pistons and rods  besides Ebay ;D Ive been looking at some Skat rods pretty cool and not to expensive, thats a plus.

 here is some pic's

Well today i tore down the rest of the block and took you'r advice "machine shop"  They said we can go 0.30 and it SHOULD be ok :o So now i need to buy new pistons but dont really know for sure what year this block is. This is what i have come up with doing a search through ford forums.

Heads D3VE A2A  72-74

Block D1VE 6015 A2B   1980's  Lincoln town car

But i still dont know for sure, If anyone knows, PLEASE chime in here cause im needing to buy pistons/rods before the machine shop will get it to work on.

Check out these cool bearings :o

Stock rods should be OK, unless you have something up your sleeve?  ;D

Did you call Jim yet? I'm telling you man, if you need BBF stuff, in good shape, or new, he's got the goods and his prices are unfreaking real.

Plus he's a helluva guy  ;D
