Coolant and oil keep mixing. I think somthings up with the head. The whole block was checked over at appleton crank. It went in for the full service, alignhone, bore, resurface ect. Sucks... and I feel bad about it since I sold him it.

Yeah it won't stop mixing. I figure throw in a stock 16v long block to get the car moving and allow me to learn how to tune for this year at least. The built block will go back in at some point once I figure out why it mixes.

Not crushed, but has been sitting for quite a while. Needs free time to be spent on getting it roadworthy.

I saw it run a couple months ago.

It runs well! During engine tear down #3 I saw a single drop of coolant fall from a temp sensor and run down to the oil trap. Oil trap had a dried up o-ring at the block and the coolant went straight into the oil sump. Don't paint your block gloss green.
I have a spare 16v long block that I built before I figured it out.

I'll take some pictures of the engine bay once it's clean. I'm happy with how it looks.

Car needs a few things:

- Flat hood latch and would like to paint the hood white
- Exhaust, might pay someone to do it
- Air filter and intake pipe
- Brakes need to be bled more
- Figure out tach signal & speedo signal - I'd like to use the original cluster
- Roll rear fenders
- Proper PCV system
- Install idle motor (need aluminum bungs welded)

I'd like to actually drive it next summer and put some miles on it. Looking at the timeline of this thread is depressing...

You should bring it down here. We can help with most of the items on the list.
