Hi Alan,giusedtobe said:Where are you in the rebuild? I am behind you as I just got mine pulled. Just found this thread and will definitely follow.
Thanks! I posed this question to Jerry back when I ordered it and here was his response:gb89amigo said:Bret,
Rebuild looks very well along and fastidiously/meticulously done! See you're using the "Jerrycam" and wonder if you anticipate any problems getting your stead re-certified for California's stringent smog requirements? Any suggestions?

I used to the standard studs. I originally got some copper plated nuts to put on there, but they were too long, or my studs were too short. Either way I got some stainless serrated nuts that had a thinner profile on there now.giusedtobe said:Hey I like the shiny silver exhaust manifold paint! Did you use new bolts instead of the standard studs that go in the head?
Top work so far. My block & crank is at the machine shop. I am trying to decide whether to paint the block black like you did or do something nuts like the lime green I saw someone else did.
Very cool to read this, enjoy!! :thumbup:takemehome4LOroads said:After about a year and half of slowly plugging away at this project, and doing all of the "well I might as well do this too" things, I've finally got a running Trooper!
