I worked most of the day Saturday putting the motor together. Got this done before noon.

Used the old penny in the gear trick.

Cleaned up the side cases. I took them all down to the condition of the chain guard in this pic and sprayed them. I then put them under a heat lamp to cure the paint.

While I was waiting for stuff to dry I sprayed the manifold with Plasti-Dip. I had very minor surface cracks and this stuff fills them up and creates a nice smooth finish. I have used this on a few manifolds and it works great. 3 or 4 coats and you are done.
