Had to stop because I forgot to order replacement exhaust manifold studs! That's just some rust converter I sprayed on the surface rust.

So, the next day I jumped on the intake side. There was oil leaking out of the intake manifold seals. That must have been before I put in an oil catch can (works like a champ). Kinda crusty. New seals will be used once I clean things up.

The other reason for removing the intake manifold was to get better access to the injection pump. I'm installing a boost compensator to better manage fuel delivery under boost.

Weekend update. Got new studs and gaskets on and tried to install the turbo and manifold assembly (fawking heavy) and quickly found out that the wastegate actuator hit the engine mount. 😡
I needed to figure out how to move the actuator up and away from the engine mount.

First attempt was to make a simple bracket. That didn't work, the damn actuator bracket was now interfering.

The next step on the project was to drop the pan, burn in an oil return line, and swap in some new BEB's.

Time to clean the oil pan. I used a wire wheel on my drill and went to town. The brake cleaner helped, too.

While I had the pan off, I wire wheeled it and treated the surface rust with some rust converter and then painted it Dark Machinery Grey (easier to see leaks and that was all I had on hand).

Hopefully, I will be able to install the pan this week and get her running. Still have some big things left like air intake piping, gauges installed in the dash, and exhaust.
