After a bit of scare on the engine when trying to turn it over to install the converter/flex plate bolts. I couldn't turn the engine, it just wouldn't budge. Well, long story short, I pulled the pan and found that I had put the #5 rod cap on backwards (chamfer facing the piston beside it) and it would not turn. Removed the cap and turned it around and now I can turn it over. I adjusted the valves and installed the dual exhaust to the mufflers (waiting on the a few parts for the resonators back that finally just shipped).
I'm getting anxious about firing this jewel up. I have meetings in Montgomery tomorrow, so won't get anything done and next week looks like a heavy workload. I guess that leaves this weekend...hmmm.
