yeah i think its a good thing i stopped when i did... I got to the point where you see it in the picture and i was about to set the timing belt tension. to do that i have to rotate the crank a couple of turns to make sure everything is really lined up. well for the life of me i couldnt figure out why i couldnt get the crank to turn a full revolution. I got aggrivated because i was figuring i'd have to pull the head back off so i quit for the night (about 6:30 am anyways...)... after i layed down and cleared my mind and thought things through, i figured out the problem in my head... one of the flywheel bolts was backed out enough to where it was catching on the engine stand...i felt like an idiot, but am thankful i figured it out before i started taking things back apart!

Yea, i just woke up in a bad mood lol. But I did mock it up to make sure my headers where gunna clear and where I needed to cut the existing exhaust. Can't really do anything else; welder out of wire, fastenal closed so no intake bolts, and I needed to clean my garage.

But, heres a pic.

It all comes down to money. I built the bottom end to handle anything I can throw at it so I wouldn't have to worry about it later. I'll get a better head later but for now I didn't need to touch the head to get it running. Plus the head can be swapped with the motor still in the car.

Got my motor in and got it running... Its not running right though. Sounds like some of the cylinders are bearling firing. Compression is at 115 lbs on each cylinder.. Im not sure what its supposed to be on the SVT. Hope to find what's going on tomorrow.

New plugs? Plugs gapped right? Timing on target? Uh, Maybe bad gas? Could be anything. Just some suggestions.

did you check the compression when the motor was cold or warmed up?

Firing order could be possible, I think it goes 1,3,2,4. You may want to check some of the archives for info. I'm a dura guy lol.
