Well schedule is no problem, and I think I can rebuild mine for less the shipping of his to me.

Good idea though, would be awesome to have a set of heads to trick out.

Got the bottom end disassembled and we are down to a bare block! Nothing crazy to report just updating with status.

Here's a cool shot my wife got, right after i took the cam out she shot down the inside of the engine. Kinda like one of those trippy mirror within a mirror pictures...

Rest of the internals + the vavles out of the heads.

I did clean up the top right two valves just to see how they'd look...pretty good.

I think if you pull the pistons out, you may need to hone and re-ring... ? Maybe not?

Good advice, I planned on honing and re-ringing already. Just checking the bore currently.

I de-greased and wire brushed the heads, prepping the heads for paint. Heads also had some pretty sharp casting corners, took some time before paint to grind them down.

Also got rid of some ugliness inside to help with flow. I didn't port them or anything, just cleaned up the flashing in the water ports and intake and exhaust.

This is a picture from when I was about half way done, but the valves are cleaned and all lapped. Which for any of you who have lapped your own valves, you know how time consuming and boring that is! Remind me to not do that again I even had a drill attachment tool for doing it and it was still painful. After that and the paint which I love, these are ready for reassembly! Then they sit until the block goes back together.

Last post from this weekend! This is just a beauty shot from after camping, the wife and I with our two dogs went to South Beach, near/in Newport OR and camped the weekend. Wedding Wagon made the 100 mile there and 100 mile back trip with no issues had a lovely time and cant wait to use this thing even more when we get the rest of the rig done (401 in, rust repair, full under carriage go through, paint, interior, and etc, etc, etc...) but are enjoying the heck out of our Wagon until we get there!

I live just south of Salem, you don’t see many wagoneers out there! It’s going to be sweet to see that 401 in it!

That clean up work is looking great. It should run strong and pull hard.
Be sure to run high zinc and phos (ZDDP) oil for your cam to live a good long time. If you run a CAT equipped exhaust system, never mind. ZDDP kills cats and that is why they reduced it to near nothing in the 80's.
Again looking super!

Hey all, don't have pictures but the heads are put back together. Valves, springs and seals. Ready to be put on the engine when i get that far.

Now to the pictures below, I was about to sand blast the timing cover when I saw the breakage.
Is the 360 timing cover the same as the 401?
I am thinking I will just steal the timing cover off my 401 when i do the swap??

360/401 cover will work Same/Same.
Really just the lower end was different for the most part.




PS
That cover "kinda" looks rebuild able. Don't throw it away!

No pictures, but I believe I got the last of the engine parts ordered today. Piston rings, main bearings, and connecting rod bearings! Should all be here by the weekend, hoping to spend Saturday putting it together.

Just remembered I still need a timing chain and sprockets but that can wait awhile as I my cover is not in good shape.

As I am writing this I am realizing all the other stuff I need...intake manifold, headers, most of my sensors (water temp, oil pressure), fuel pump, water pump, etc... But as far as engine internals I think i am done!

Isn't it amazing how no matter how much stuff you order and you just know that should be everything, it isn't. You say, yep that's it. Then it hits you after your done ordering, of coarse, that you forgot half your stuff.
