    Engine is still at the machine shop... But it slows me down so I can spend time restoring these little areas.

    I installed the oil warning light to fill the hole in the dash. It is kind of redundant because the way I set it up the Ignition coil won't get power until the oil pressure is high enough to flip the oil pressure switch. So if the oil pressure goes low the the engine will shut down and turn on the warning lamp. Maybe with a buzzer installed it will stop me from leaving the key on.

    Can't test if it works until the engine goes in but hopefully the starter cranking will pump up the oil pressure, then the oil switch closes, fires the relay and turns on the ignition cct./ turn off the low pressure warning lamp.

    B43m tear down tomorrow, prepping for the new short block.

    Got side tracked today and painted the foot area and the instrument tower. used a rattle can power red then clear coat while it's tacky. ran out of rattle can clear so I mixed up some 2 part clear. It goes on so much better and is super tough but is a pain to clean the gun afterwards.

    I tried to get that access plate off with a slot screwdriver and vise grips, tried hammering the edge with a punch but they are on there. Maybe I'll give it a shot another day, I don't really need to be looking in there ATM.

    What access plate are you talking bout?

    The two slotted screws on the tunnel deck hold the TCV.

    That makes sense, I was hoping for a nice panel I could open to look at all those TCV linkages.

    Bit of assembly and motor tear down today.

    Bores are okay, not good. It had 90 PSI and 110 PSI before It was pulled.

    Crank looks good and the piston rod end seemed to be surviving. still seemed within spec.

    This I think was the big problem, giving it low oil pressure. It was really sloppy and I can see wear on the bottom of the bearing where copper is showing. It may have lasted a season before it popped or maybe 3 but if I am going to use this on someones property with a ditch witch attachment I don't want the engine to barf oil all over their lawn.

    I have been promised my coupler will be cut this week. should be cutting grass by Sunday
