          So in less than a month since it landed, i got it unsiezed and running and moving under its own power.
          Moon wheel covers but would need really wide wheels for the back.
          Instead i traded some work for a set of aluminum turbine wheels.
          They will look ok.

                  Thanks. Im just scratching the surface,
                  Front wheel dust caps gone, so im thinking shoes were pulled so it would roll.
                  Brakes will be next after i get cooling system sorted out.

                    The poly is a good engine. Tough as nails block, good oiling and cooling. The biggest thing is it weighs a buttload for its displacement, almost as much as a B series big block and depending on accessories, can near a stock RB.

                    The other issue is parts are expensive. Intakes are 3-5 times that of an LA or BB. Cam choices are pretty much custom grinds.

                    That said, with a stock cam and a stock 4 barrel and a good tune, they can hit 275-300 hp easily. Limited mostly by the crappy flowing manifolds.

                    There’s been people pick up 75 hp on a just a header swap on a dyno. Course header choices are limited and pricey. All depends on what you want to do.

                    Dam forgot how awkward a slant is on a cheap HF engine stand. Definitely glad it is stripping not assembly time!

                        This thing is strange pretty clean inside but the cylinders have a ridge, not getting it except that I can believe it is 6K on it. Oil smelled like PA crude also. WSonder if it was original also? Broke out my ridge reamer yesterday and actually forgot how to use it it has been so long!

                                Had an interesting day today. Left house around 10 am my Time , 11 pm yurin....Immediately noticed a problem with the Motorbike. Stopped, looked, Friggin Flat Tire on the rear. So I have her drive it forward, slowly, ...Yup... picked up a screw, somewhere yesterday, must have leaked down, overnight. So I say, not to drive it far , cuz ruin the tire. They are so thick headed, I try to get her to stop, where I see a compressor...But NOOOO. She wants to take it to the Honda Shop, Ya Ok bout 10 minutes away. I show the tech the screw, and translate to him, that I want it plugged., Right ? Either he lies that they dont have a plug kit, or they just want to sell a new Tire, just like shops in the US. Well we end up leaving it there and driving off on a loaner. 2 hours later, they bring it to the house, which I thought was pretty cool. Didn't expect that. Guy shows up at the compound gate, and nobody can find the spare key to unlock the gate , and let him in.LOL LOL Guy waits 30 minutes for the Sister that had the other key, to return it...LOL. Cost of entire ( NEW TIRE ) and service. 1 million dong, or $43 US.....I told her, I could have fixed it for free, in 5 minutes, if it happened near my house , in America.........:BangHead::BangHead:
