    Ok so here is my build project it a 5.0 out of a 94 GT with 82k on it,the owner was running this block with a T70 at 14 psi, it had a tick and when he tore it down it turned out to be a rocker and instead of putting it back in he bought a motor out of CA and is going to run twin turbos,he told me that this block was running fine when he pulled it for the tick he thought for sure it was a Rod brg. Now it's my turn to bring it back,I will post pics as I work on it.

    10-31, I got it on the stand and getting ready to clean it up but is pretty clean now I'll just spray it down with brake clean and clean all gasket mounting areas then on to check rods and mains.

    Used scotch Brite discs and got all gasket mounting areas clean,noticed a water pump stud is broke off floss so I'll see if a left hand drill bit and some heat will remove it,checked number 2 Rod bearings and they looked just fine and I used my bore light and all the cam bearings are good,they almost look new.
    ill prime the block tomorrow and I decided to go with Cyl head studs so I ordered a set of ARPs for it and that's were I am now.

    Good call on the L/H drill bit. They work for me 95% of the time even without the extra heat.
    Are you going with the stock size head studs or stepping up to 1/2"?

    lol hat was the same prob I ran into with a brolen waterpump bolt. Everytime I put the vicegrips on it, the damn thing would break off lower. Then broke a ez out off. Finaly ended up drilling and re-taping the hole again to get the old threads out. While it was in the car. PITA

    I painted it with 1606 dark blue Dura coat witch is 68 and newer and I did the oil pan in a lighter blue just to break it up,think it's a pre 68-66 ford blue.

    It will be Thursday or Friday before I post again being I thought I had a oil pump but thought wrong plus I'm waiting for my head studs.

    Think I'll get the cam in and gears maybe and get 1 on TDC.

    I'm not sure on what valve covers I want to use and I think I might paint the intake.

    Looks good man. Maybe paint the intake the same color is the block?? Not sure if that would be too much blue though.

    Not sure what it is, but the chrome valve covers look way out of place imo.
