Looks great! moving right along. Life is busy with a toddler, car rebuild, and kitchen remodel!!
Possibly the block pipe o-rings? They're notorious for pinching. I now test fill the system to check for leaks before I button up the PS, cobra etc. Had a pinched o-ring set me back half a day.Engine is in, went to fill with fluids and the brand new water pump and seal (halves) did not take, it is a waterfall. Couldn't believe it. Car is going to have to sit for a while.
I wish I had a lift, my friend does. It was so nice to not be on my back for once for a job.That’s Great! Do you have a lift in your garage? Also, what tools are you using to press bearings? Do you find it useful in removing and installing? I have a screw type installer but so far have only used it to instal. I don’t know it will remove very well.
