Can you post up a bunch of pics of the various internals of your engine(s)? As a fellow LT-1 owner I'd love to get a look at guts of one. I'm thinking the valve train, crankcase, and anything else you have a pic of. Thanks.

I'll take/post a bunch of picks of the swap, and engine guts. Hopefully I can find the time this weekend to get it all done. I imagine I'll get the old engine out without a problem and run into issues with something on the install and have to wait a week or so for some random part. I'm not quite sure how to swap the trans over yet and figure I'll find my delays there.

Before I pulled the heads, there was a lot of play in quite a few of the rockers, to the point that I was able to slide them off of the valve rod. It didn't seem like it was supposed to be that way to me, more like the bolt compressing the spring should have been tighter to get rid of the excessive play, I'm guessing that 1700 hours of wear caused this, and I'm better off with the heads that came with the replacement engine and porting/rebuilding these.

Here is the intake manifold removed, if anyone wants, I'll pull the plate off of the inside to get a better idea of what goes on in there.

First, there is no gasket between the trans and the engine. No worries there.

Second, if the heads (pictured) were removed from the original engine, they must of had work done to them before. They should of been painted black.

That's good news about the heads having had work in the past, I was really thinking the previous owner was full of it with how clogged the water jackets were, since removing the heads, the clog has become more and more chalky as it dried out, and at this point falls apart really easily.

Also, thanks for the good news about the lack of a gasket, I might actually stand a chance of completing the swap this weekend. The last two weekends were a wash, my neighbor rented his house out for Daytona bike week, and the guy that rented the house completely blocked in my yard with cars and trailers...didn't see him at all the 10 days he was there, now that he's gone I get to park my bike in my neighbors garage again and have access to the engine I'm hiding out back.

What is the pan looking part on the bottom of the intake manifold? And yes, please pull off the plate to let us see inside. Its snowing here in Spokane so this is as close to boating as I can get right now.
