During this whole process I was laser focused on making sure everything was done correctly. Due to this I didn't get any photos taken during the rod and piston assembly; I know shame on me. But I at least came out of my focus tunnel to snap a finished product before installation picture. PXL_20220409_051025783.PORTRAIT

Next I started laying in pistons. The ARP ring compressor and plenty of lube had them dropping in with little effort. PXL_20220409_053957323.PORTRAIT PXL_20220409_054106012.PORTRAIT PXL_20220410_144942018.PORTRAIT

All that was left was to bolt the oil pump back in and snap the final picture. PXL_20220410_214926224.PORTRAIT PXL_20220410_221906320.PORTRAIT
