An update on my GT40's engine: we now have the fresh 1968 302 block back from the machine shop, bored .030, all set up. The block and heads were pressure-tested and passed. Also, the heads had some corrosion in the block face (remember- no AF in the coolant!) and were TIG welded in those areas and resurfaced. Tomorrow evening we'll begin putting the engine back together- this is all the old parts into the new block. An inspection of all the internals verified that they appear new, which they ought to, having only 25-30 hours if that. Hope to have the engine assembled, painted (Ford Blue and whoever said orange, go stand in the corner until spring), reinstalled in the car and running and driving by the end of March, latest. Progress reports to follow.
