That engine looks really nice. Check the clearance on the apex seals grooves; buy new apex seals and a soft seal kit (the fel-pro kit is my fav) and enjoy.

Take a pic of the rotors and bearings. I don't see any wear on the e shaft in the corners of the pics so I'd assume the bearings are a ok.

The chrome on the rotor housings looks real good!

Hard to tell until they're cleaned up but it looks like there may be some fatal corrosion around the water channels and O ring sealing grooves, which would be a shame.

I'm curious about the "X" irons too, anybody know where these come from?

Looks amazing. Great job!!

Going to look really clean when it is all done. Even a new oil pan!

Have you arrived at a conclusion for why the car was smoking?
