And just when I thought I had all the detailed pics I needed for reassembly I want to ensure I put the studs in the heads on their appropriate sides. According to my pics, the head with the stud on the front is on the left side (by distributor)?

Assume it’s this guy into the head

I love working on nice clean engines, looking good. Sorry if I missed it but did you powdercoat or paint all your suspension parts, I don't know anything about covering galvanized parts and I was worried powdercoat wouldn't stick. I sanded and painted mine but it already seems pretty easy to knock off.

Thanks,
Sean

Hey Sean everything’s been powder coated except final drives which were epoxy painted.

Out with the old, in with the new

Can someone please advise, my new HD box from RN doesn’t have the ability to mount this sensor. I assume I need to swap the sensor mount.
