Joe's buick motor.

Post by RewT » 21 Jul 2014, 05:51

This car was in the shop getting some rust repair taken care of, Then Joe decided to have us finish pulling the motor and sending it off to the machine shop for a rebuild. He also wanted to have the tranny rebuilt and the fire wall and undercarriage cleaned up and coated. Here is what I started with.

Pretty nasty in there..

And stripped and ready to head to the machine shop.

Getting a good deal is no reason to accept sub-par work, since making it right costs more later.

Then while the motor was out getting freshened up, I started doing all the small stuff.

Started with stripping and clean the entire undercarriage getting it ready for new undercoating.

And then redid the valve covers.

Old vs. straight out of the blast cabinet.

Then a coat of primer.
