Sorry for taking so long on an update...been real busy here lately trying to get everything together on all the projects.
Well, after about a month of delays, the engine block for the 280zx finally came home cleaned and with new cam bearings. Ryan went about honing the cylinders, and clearancing the cam boss for the double roller timing chain. After that was done it was given a final cleaning and I taped it off and painted it blue...
I promise more timely updates as the real work is ready to proceed on the build. The engine should go together here in the next week or so, and I'm going to be getting the Z ready for the install. I'm gonna be stripping the front clip off of her to provide better access to the engine compartment, and to prevent damage to the somewhat thin sheetmetal of the body...more to come!
