After a year of building, rebuilding, leaks,etc... The list of engine issues kept going on and on. The 390 is running smooth (cross your fingers). It will be nice to drive the car again.

The overheating was caused due to one bolt, being longer, and having bottomed out and allowing a small amount of coolant to seep in to the cylinder. I swapped out stock bolts with ARP's to take care of that problem.

I also ran into about a 1/2 dozen other small issues that took awhile. I couldn't get my power steering pump to stop screeching and leaking so I put on a serpentine belt set up with pulleys and power steering pump. It is a cool set up.
