So this weekend I hit 500 miles on the rebuild engine. Did the 1at oil change and the oil was golden and didn't burn the slightest bit.

My advisor bought a 89 and we were going to fix it up but it has just to many issues. We are going to part it out. I got 1st Dibs on parts. Finally got some nerf bars! Also got trunk mat. So excited for.l the nerf bars. They will be going on tomorrow!

@Lochinvar not a drop. For the lowest price oil pan om Amazon I'm amazed with how well it's made and holding up. However is I were do it again I'd use the ridged felpro oil pan gasket. Put one on a customers car the other day and was really impressed with it.

Do you think that Fel-Pro is better than the factory gasket? Someone was recommending a gasket called 'my Honda habit.' have you seen those?

IMO Fel-Pro gaskets are well made. Always worth considering.
They HAVE resulted in issues with some applications (head gaskets).

Better than factory? Prob not.

Also.. yes I know she needs a bath. Thats also fresh off the lift. The back will sag into place. It's normally not that high in the ass.
