    "No finish grind"

    I need a bit of explanation if that is the case.

    Whenever it gets tossed on the engine I will share my findings.

    It was a pleasant sight to find instructions. Its just that extra "thought" put into the product.

    Buzzed around this morning with her. Still just in LOVE with the top end power/pick up this thing has. So much fun.

    Anyways still need to change the water pump out as it leaves a couple drips on the harmonic balancer after a long drive. Unfortunately some schmoo is SLOWLY leaking out from between the block and cylinder head right at the number 5 piston near the lower head bolt. FML. Wonder if it is also leaking into the cylinder!? It is a super super super slow leak of a fluid I have not determined yet...Obviously either oil or coolant.


    Anyways the car still looks good at least and runs normal.

    Excited to get the under drive crank pulley on. Daily driver needs come first though..motor mounts in the Benz takes priority over the pleasure of working in the "fun" car.

    You keep your stuff clean and do great work. The attention to detail shows. Thought I was half way decent until I saw your cars haha. Now all I see on mine are swirl marks and more that could be done. Makes me feel unworthy to own my Townie.
