I don't have any pictures to go with my progress, camera is dead, but I will try and get them tomorrow.

I had a Homer Simpson moment while working... I could only get one bolt off the flywheel holding the torque convertor on. It was the only one I could get a socket around. The other ones I tried with an open end wrench. Bad Mistake, one was pretty badly stripped... Anyway, my Homer moment was, I never thought of rotating the engine to get at the other bolts... Once I did that, I could get 2 more off, and the last bolt I had to use a vice grip since it was stripped. But I got that off, and took the fly wheel off.
Took out the spark plugs to try a thumb compression test. And the spark plugs are slightly black at the ends... (picture tomorrow) so I think there is a small oil leak in the cylinders. All 8 plugs look the same too. With the thumb compression test, and a ratchet on the crank pulley, my dad says some cylinders have a little more compression then others... So we need to replace the cylinder gaskets, or valves, w/e it is.
Started cleaning as well... This will be a long process, haha. Out side will take a couple days, with detergent or something similar. Then some sand paper and rust remover on a couple spots.
In the intake ports of the heads, there seems to be some carbon or something. I should probably take the heads in for a valve job and good cleaning at NAPA.
I have a friend who just received his automotive degree, and is also rebuilding a 5.0L out of an 80s Lincoln, so he can help me out some I hope.

Anyway, I'll try and get some pics tomorrow.

Thought I'd share with you guys the pictures I take from Forza 2. I wish they were the real cars...

I need to start playing Forza 2 again. Drifting in that game is fun

Ya, I have a 350 LT1, that's not modded...yet, but my car could beat the RS, but it'd be a much closer match than you'd probably expect (3.6L putting out 304HP), and the SS(6.2L) wouldn't even be a match it would walk away from me like nothing.

I took a bunch more pictures, I have them up here www.hascet.com

Yeah, for a V6, it has some power. My 302 won't even have that power when it's done. But it will still have more low end torque.

You should fix that engine up a bit, get a couple more horses. Cam, windage tray, some aluminum pulleys, cheap, but can get you some power.
I want to get nitrous injection sometime... cheap 100hp, and with like a purge switch, it would be so fun to pull up next to a riced out car, and purge it, lol. And 100 hp at the press of a button. I would def take out cruise control and wire it into that button, so someone else driving the truck presses the button for cruise, and 100hp kicks in, lol.
