Tin Indians Rule:
Kyledyr, You're moving right along at getting that ol engine back together. Nice documentation too. Just one comment about the build-up. Use the WD-40 as little as possible. It's solvent based and will actually resist the coating by oil leaving you more prone to friction at the initial start-up. Good luck with her.

Thanks, good to know.  Ironically, my can of WD-40 is extremely low on propellent (doe anyone else hate having liquid left in a can that just wont come out?) so I could only get a few drips out, then I just rubbed it around the surfaces and threads that need to stay clean.  I mostly put it on to inhibit any rust between now and when I get them in the engine.  I'll keep you guys posted.
