They were blasted and then galvanized

Lifters lubed and put in their forever home.

I am awaiting oem rods due to me buying adjustable pushrods from Turner and deciding against using them.

Started reassembly of front of the engine, injector rail and final torqued headers. Put in upgraded injectors. Of course need new sensors.

Ordered new heater pipe since I wasn’t happy how it turned out and also new alternator, ignition wire clips and oil cap.

Got bulkhead, front roll bar installed and started brake lines routing. Also touched base with my aluminum guy working on my panels. He found bondo in my hood, but repairs were perfect! Got it better than new.

The beauty of working on Land Rovers is you get to do things multiple times.

I forgot I needed to tap new holes for my hand brake bracket, which were behind the brake. Oh well job done!

Also installed my new caliper lines to my AP calipers that I finally got from overseas.

My break-in oil finally arrived and got to use my handy tool I got from the uk to prime oil pump and set initial timing.

Today, again, I realized how lucky I was to find a true blacksmith that has a passion for metal work the old school ways.

I got my tool box back from him today. It needed work on the seam where the two pieces of metal are electrically welded due to rot.
