Thanks Rich!


All the internals sitting on the bench. Kind of threw them up there as I was in a time crunch.


Recipient will be this 86 short wide. Solid inside and out. Surface rust on the cab roof.

My brother had an 85. It was black and loaded. We put a trans in it then it threw a rod through the side of the block. So he bought a remanned 5.2 I think it was . I know I goofed with the carb a bunch after he got it in and such. I kept asking him what he did to it to get it so far out of adjustment. He sez he still sees it around midland some times so I guess it is still running.

Block and crank are back from the machine shop. It amazes me that these newer engines don't wear like the older ones. No undersize on the mains or rods and just honed the cylinders.

Still can't up load pics

I haven't checked the dates to see if I'm off work. I'd really like to go and work the tune.


I cleaned the block, installed the cam bearings and thru some hemi orange paint on the block. Parts have started to arrive as well

Engine is mostly back together with a new bump stick from Hughes engines, new bearings, new rings, new timing chain and tensioner. Heads are engine quest drilled for an LA style intake. That allowed me to pick up an air gap rpm performer intake. Still need to get a carb for the build. Also need to get the old 318 and tranny out of the truck and have the tranny gone thru. Going to use the timing cover off the 318 so I can install a mechanical fuel pump. That's about it for now since I had to go back to work.

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Pulled the worn out 318 and tranny. Dropped the tranny at the shop for rebuild and pulled the timing cover and v-belt drive for accessories off the old engine. Got the old timing cover cleaned up and installed on the magnum. May have some belt alignment issues....
