Default Very Slow

Well this might be the slowest restoration on record. Update on progress.
Trunk area and gas tank cleaned with tested fuel pump reinstalled.
Brake system with new master cylinder, power assist, brake pipe and rebuilt calipers X 4
Power steering rebuilt and installed.

The slow progress gos on. I have placed the new sleeves, pistons and rings into block. Will get a cross plate to keep sleeve in place before timeing chain. The rope seal took some time to soften, but is in place.
