    mig would be easier and quicker but i dont mind taking my time with this. Also I have never tig welded before so its a chance to learn a new skill.

    I bought the new crank a while ago simply because I have everything but as far as the block is concerned. Hoping to put together an engine half as cool as the TPS built 4a in the Newera Imports Levin.

    The throttle bodies were sand blasted

    and the manifold is RS Chita, http://www.rschita.jp/4renmani_type2.htm

    Although I think mine is an older design as the throttle body flanges are not connected in sets of two as shown in the link.
