Clean up and thorough engine service

Looks like a good project. I would cut the sills you have (oversills) in half to make them into normal sills with open vents.

Thanks! I was considering doing that, I will have to brace the shell though when I replace them right?

This is as far as it go today :( Pallet dolly works a treat though! I need some help guys! What size are the bolts for the oil filter housing? I need to get some longer ones to secure it to the engine stand!
