M0009 Top End Rebuild Part 2

So coming home one night, my TA started overheating and was smoking from antifreeze leaking all over my exhaust manifold. I had blown a head gasket on the passenger side.

If I was going to go through all the work to replace the head gasket I figured I might as well upgrade the top end while I was doing it.

This post is shows most of the disassembly minus removing the heads.



^ Radiator and alternator out.




^




^ Sans-Fan





^ All front accessories off.





^Carb off.


^ Sometimes taking off the intake can be tough. Try sticking a screwdriver the front of the intake and the front of the block and pry it off (Gently).


^




^ New and old.




^




^Valve covers off.


^




^ Pushrods, rocker arms, lifters out.




^ Exhaust manifolds off.




^

^Most everything that I have taken off so far.
