Back to the d90 build. Picked up motor from the machine shop today.

Block tested good and flat. No resurfacing needed. Serial number remains!

Went .020 over, new pistons, cam and reground crank. Heads are being overhauled now.

Looks new...excited to get chassis back

Finally have some progress with the NAS 90 #3.

I wanted to preserve the original frame and keep the serial numbers correct and since the only rust to the frame was the rear crossmember it underwent surgery Over the last few days. Needs to be flipped and underside welded but here are some progress pics

Motor looks nice!

About to pull mine and do the same maybe punch up the cam and headers for fun.

And I need to do the same with the rear crossmember!

Few more areas of rust were found and needed to be cut out and repaired on the outriggers and crossmember

Such a beautiful sight!

Did you galvy it and then have it sprayed?

Restoring the rear axle casing and it was noted the cap needs to be replaced due to damage, but I am wondering if the white "x" marks were original to the truck? If so id like to put them back on.

White x is normally grease pen marks added during manufacture to indicate filled with oil etc.

Starting the engine build and I’m wondering if I have the wrong head gasket set from turner engineering. It’s an ehlring kit but the new gaskets set 916.059 cover up 4 headbolt holes. Can anyone provide some guidance?
