spun the balance shaft bearings 180 degrees to remove shafts

blocked up main balance shaft hole with cold weld metal putty stuff my
cousin used it with his and said works very well no leaks ever

inner of the oil pump showing the cold weld very nice and clean

outside with cold weld looks all good but does the job :)

Now up to the head reassembly have just finished doing the valve lapping as replaced 2 valves as they had minor pitting and had some better spares so used them the only parts i need for the head is the head gasket and the valve stem seals

i have put the engine in the galant to see how space is between the firewall and thermostat housing and there was absolutely none but there was a space between the cam angle sensor so all i need to do is make the thermostat housing less protrusive than the cam angle sensor

i thought and thought n thought again then tried a few ideas none worked that wouldn't involve a lot of welding so i slept on the thought the next day i came up with a brilliant plan :) and i will tell u all next time when its all done with pics to explain :) update soon

Ok here are the pics of what i have done used steel putty to extend the mounting surface drilled and tapped the hole and bolted on to head so now i just make the radiator hose piece go to the side piping witch will have the thermostat housing welded onto it then it will have the radiator hose going from the thermostat housing to the top radiator hose

Radiator hose connecting the thermostat housing and head now just need the radiator hoses to the radiator and need to get a 180 degree bent pipe or try mock up another piece to sort the water pump sides of things but at the moment ive just found a 4g63t full package so buying that for the full forged setup later on also couldn't get any cheap engine mounts so making my own one piece solid mounts for it should be done tomorrow
