I'm planning on using that burnt copper color for a lot of the main engine parts, and using the silver for all the smaller accent pieces. It will take me longer, but at least it will look pretty when I'm done.

Here is a bit more progress I had over the weekend. Only had about half a day to work in the garage. Getting really close though! I'll be painting the upper intake and throttle body soon. For the throttle body, do you guys know if there is a way to remove the spring easily? It will be hard to paint with it on there.

It all comes apart, I did mine but that was 5 years ago. So I don't remember how.

Do you remember if the spring stayed bound together, or if it unraveled when you removed it? That is my main concern

its should stay in shape. you should only have to spring it a little when you reassemble because the throttle plate should always have some tension to keep it closed.

I had a good weekend prepping the last pieces that I need to have painted, however, a windy Sunday put a stop to my painting plans. I will most likely be painting the last pieces tonight or tomorrow, then the final assembly can begin! There are still a few odds and ends that I have to order, but I have some questions in the mean time.

For our PCV Valve, when I took mine out, it was the valve, a spring, and half of a gasket left on the plate. I looked online for the gasket and can't find it anywhere. In my search, I also found a picture that showed there being some kind of grommet underneath the valve?? Mine didn't have anything like that when I took it out.

The next thing I am wondering about is the Front Main Seal. Is there an easy way to put that on the front cover? I just ruined one trying to get it on.

whats the problem exactly? I normally just slide them on the post on the front of the block and dab some rtv in the corners on the bottom next to the oil pan gasket

I put RTV on it, but there is no way to press it in even a little. If I was able to get the seal to sit in there straight, it would be easy to walk around it with a hammer, but it's like the inner lip of the seal and the front cover are the same exact size. Chilton manual says to use a really large socket to hammer it in, but I don't have anything that big. And I don't have the tool to put it in either. Didn't know if there was another trick to get it in place.

Thanks for those part numbers, btw!
