I started to assemble the bus engine as I posted earlier. I stared cleaning the pistons and cylinder to be ready to get them installed. I also started cleaning the heads to bolt everything together. I cleaned the 3/4 side head and found a crack from the spark plug hole to the valve. This is not good. I then inspected the other head and found cracks also from the spark plug to the valve on both sides. This make these heads trash.
I have another set of stock heads in my storage. I inspected these and found they do not have cracks. However, they are stock. The heads I was going to use have bigger valves and have had porting to breath better. I will have the stock heads worked on by Audirac and have him install bigger valves and do some porting. Unfortunately, I don't have money at this time to do these things. Therefore, everything stops now on the bus engine. Just when I was gaining some momentum.
However, I do have two interviews this week that look promising for once. I have some interviews in the recent past but did not materialize into a job. One of the interviews will be my second with the particular company. I am sure it will narrow a field of a half a dozen or more candidates to a couple or three. I am hoping to get into the group of 2 or 3. The other also looks promising as I will be meeting with the owner face to face. We have been talking for the past couple of weeks. Either job will be a good one, I just hope that at least one makes an offer. It would make a great Christmas present.
Well that's all for now. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone and your families.
