The big part of the engine is back in the truck

The cylinder heads are currently being redesigned. We have reground the valves and the valve seats are milled. An exhaust valve was burned. I bought also a new one from Rockauto but the slot on the end of the valve was on the wrong position. We also ground a new slot in.

The last days I cleaned up the flywheel. After reading some threads in the forum it seems to be a desaster with the clutch

Luckily I have the same flywheel as Pepsi in his truck.

I've ordered the AMS 04528 clutch on Rockauto. Tomorrow I will receive it. After reading in my book there are four different type of clutches. I think I have the Borg Style. But I'm not sure because the spring is diaphragm style.
I really hope it will fit.

Thank you Funky
I bought the engine stand in a german webshop:

Its also available from KS Tools but it costs more than twice.

A Healthy Happy New Year to everybody!

Little update. Unfortunately, there is not much going on at the moment. It's very cold here

Mounted the transmission on the bellhousing and the new driveshaft. The old one was no longer usable. Cylinder heads and other parts are also back on the block. Here are some pictures.

I also added a fuel pressure gauge. I'm not happy with the airfilter. I think I will change it with a black one. This was the first thing I bought when I bought the truck

At the moment I'm trying with the new exhaust pipes. I will add a steel exhaust with 2 1/4" diameter and Flowmonster mufflers. They are the same like the Flowmaster 40.

I ordered a new waterneck (75 Pontiac TransAm) because the old one was a modified from a Chevy small block. Let's see if it fits.

I forgot the information about the clutch.

Unfortunately the Rhino clutch did not fit

I did it like MilitaryChevy (thank you) and milled something away from the hub.

Is that the three finger rhino pak clutch or a different one? What did you mill down?

Yes Pepsi, this is the three finger clutch. I think you used the same?

I milled down the hub on the flywheel side (red mark on the photo). I think I milled down 8mm. The hub sticks out on the wrong side so it would rub against the flywheel. The original clutch is flat on the flywheel side.

Yes, I used the same one. I don't notice any rubbing though. It all bolted up just fine. Now I'm wondering if i'm rubbing my flywheel in there....

Hmm... I think you would hear that. I suspect that the hubs are never assembled in the same order/direction during the production of the clutch. Possibly yours was pressed in the other way around. TJ had the same problems with his Rhino.
