I'm behind on updates so I'll try to tackle that now!

Engine is all back together, think all in all we had 4 days into it. Probably about 30 hours. 1 day was a full teardown and then 3 days of cleaning and putting it all back together.

As of now the truck has about 1000 miles on the rebuild and has never ran better since new. The engine is so quiet and purrs like a kitten at idle. So glad I did this repair myself with a friend. I had a lot of great satisfaction in doing it and doing it right.

I opted to replace more parts that needed while I was in there. I replaces all the timing parts including chains and guides. Added probably about $400 more to the parts list but it was worth it
