That's a good setup, and all most really need. What about the drivetrain? Did you just clean it up while the engine was out? I can't stand when people put filthy parts back onto the car after they have been removed.

Builds looking good, I miss being in Bako. I'm glad that I'm at 4300 ft above elevation though, it's about 10 deg. cooler. I do hate how far I have to travel to get to L.A. and the Ventura, it's quite the drive but a fun one. Good luck with the build

Seeing this thread for the first time. I bought 390/2000 which also happens to be Nile Black from it's original owner! Granted it didn't come with all the maintenance records like yours, but still pretty crazy that 2 so closely numbered stayed with the original owners so long! Good work so far!

If you haven't already done it, I would recommend you replace the 2 outer exhaust manifold studs with larger ones (2g style) while you've got it all apart.
