Re: got my new 7.3 together

looks pretty good...looks to be a little coarse on the machine work on the block deck surfaces...but it should be fine for stock gaskets.

nice color on the block, but is the oil pan cream colored or is it the lighting?

good luck with it~

Re: got my new 7.3 together

yeah i was gonna do the ford blue with black but i cant see oil leaks very good on black so i just sprayed it with cummins paint i had. now that its all together and in the truck it looks nice. ill take a picture tomorrow of the thing in the truck, i painted the heads cummins color and the valve covers blue looks sharp, i also polished all the aluminum i could like the hpop and the hpop resivoir up front and the intake side of the turbo. looks like some kind of show engine, realy i just had a lot of spare time when i was waitning on the machine shop to get done with my block.

Re: got my new 7.3 together

well its all back in the truck and im drivin it around, put 100 miles on it earlier, with all the assesories and all the intercooler pipes and stuff you cant even see the engine, all you can realy see is a little bit of the blue valve covers, oh well at least i know how pretty it is under all that junk, by the way it runs great, just hard to start.

Re: got my new 7.3 together

Is it hard to start after driving the 100 or so miles or when you first fired it back up? I could see why it was the first time.

Oh btw looks good!!
