Waiting for my replacment short block

As lot you have reading I was having some seirous Issues with a short block I have the cam and the rest of the bearings were bad the crank was bad the block was cracked also and it only had 3000 miles on it.

Blueprint engines has told me they are going to replace it I cant say enough so far they been great I would tell any one if they want a motor and a company that will back up there motors this is the one to go to.

I started to get the parts clean that are going back in to the car This part that sucks cleaning the parts once again getting them ready to put back together.

But the good thing about this redo I changing stuff that I found out I did not like about the last set up.
Like a 8 Qt oil pan, I had a 5Qt When I should went with the 7 or 8.

some guys don,t think having a high capacity baffled oil pan is (SEXY) and they don,t think its worth bragging rights, but its a huge step in the correct direction (TOWARD DURABILITY)

theres not much thats (SEXY) about an engine thats not running!

Ya I know what you mean I tryed the oil cooler route last time I did not like it after all if you wanted to get all the oil out of it you had to remove the hoses and blow them out that was 3 Qt's a big mess every time.

A big pan I still haave my 8 Qt's I can run a high volume pump and not suck the pan dry doing so.

I heard pro's and cons about high pressure pumps for a street car DD.

More oil cooler it can run ect keeping the motor well lube and cool makes motor last.

Cleaning

The fun part starts Cleaning all the bolts nuts and stuff that being reused.

It has to be done but it no fun.

Checked and cleaned the heads intake most of the big stuff.

Now it's the lttle stuff bolts and nuts.

But after the new short block and other new stuff for it shows up I going to take it a part and clean it out I not going though this again.

But with my luck the new short block will not need it after all, But I will clean it anyways.
