1989 RS build thread

Might as well document this somewhere


this is how i first found her



2 weeks later it's mine!

first night

more pics














So honestly, I have no idea how it drive, but at $800 it was a bargain.

The previous owner threw a rod in cyl #1

So the block is probably trash.

but lucky for me, i've got a 350 shortblock sitting around. lets see how this goes

NOVEMBER 9, 2010

Not much to say
this is what the engine looked like when today started

and when today ended

pulled the alt, a/c, rad, fan, throttle body, air filter, distributor cap and the belt not bad for like 2 hours work haha

November 10, 2010
Engine is ready to be pulled out. Unfortunately, it's frozen, so we had to pull the trans out too, since we couldn't unbolt the torque converter from the flywheel
