Update -
I just got home from a long weekend drive of 662km/411miles, and everything looks to be just fine.
So far I have driven 1038km/645miles since the rebuild.

Hi,
As a matter of fact, your post is most timely.
I did pick up the engine one month ago.  I now have it installed and this week I have been doing some driving and tweaking.
Everything has been just fine so far.  A lot of rain lately has slowed me up a bit but tomorrow I will have her out on the road again.
As with many restorations, there are always unexpected things to deal with.  In my case, since I drive this car a lot, and frequently long distances, I wanted everything in prime condition and reliable.  I didn't want to have to get into the engine or clutch anytime soon.  So far, it looks great.

John,

Can you rotate the link 180 degrees?

The original engine color was black, aluminum cylinder head and timing cover are not painted.

Most of the engine bolts have a black oxide finish.

The cylinder head gasket is pre-pressed and has metal bordering on all edges.  The maintenance manual does not call for sealants and none was evidenced when I pulled my cylinder head.  There is a specific cylinder head tightening sequence and torque requirement for the head bolts (see below).
