Top notch effort, if only younger me had seen your work and not scraped all my old cars

I've always found permaseal gaskets to be awesome. 

Looking mighty sharp there. Gladens my heart to see what you're doing.

Problem with ignition switch maybe? Loses power to coil when cranking?

 

It was discussed.. but never missed a beat prior to engine swap and also when it does start it's normal not when the key comes off cranking. Hotwire?

Clint wins the chocolate fish, hotwired it and fired straight up.

BUT it's making a decent rattle so it's gotta come apart again anyway.

will start tearing out when it cools down.

Something else must have been amiss. Failure to run properly wouldn't deprive the bearings of oil bad enough to cause the damage seen there.  If you've ever cranked and engine with the oil pressure sender removed they move a fuck tonne of oil even at cranking speed.

I like your moreys trick to help build initial pressure noted in another thread

.. Do you fill the filter with oil and feed the moreys into the pump until it's about to puke into the block, spin filter on and bolt it up?
