i been kinda depressed and out of it, since my engine won be completed for carlisle due to the fact i ran out of money for it.

i spent the money on the wrong things but when its done it will be an awesome engine.

so this past weekend it was really getting to me, so i drug out the block on the stand and started prepping it for paint and eneded up painted it old ford blue with the paint i purchased back on October for it after my sis got me 20bucks to auto zone for my Bday, so i bought paint, lol.

looks good, but got paint in a few places i shouldn't, so Thursday night i'm gonna clean all the bold holes and clean the paint outta the oil filter area, the back of the block and were the water pump and timing cover go, and start putting in the pistons and crankshaft.

water pump
oil pump
oil pump screen
6 quarts motorcraft 10w30
pilot bearing

maybe $150 in parts......plus what ever i forgot
so i canceled my hotel room for Carlisle
only going up one day and started selling parts i been holding on to for rainy day to a few buds of mien that they needed so hopefully by July i'll be in business!

Paint your engine whatever color suits your fancy. I'm installing a "new" one soon, and I painted it to match my interior.
