Touch up

So I pulled the 400 out of the 68 goat just to replace leaking seals and gaskets. I found it to be bored .060" over but everything else pretty standard.

I think that makes it a 411 cu?

Anyways I spent a couple weeks on touching her up and I'm getting ready to put it back in tonight. Just thought I'd share a before paint and after shot.

Norm, looks brand new. What did you use on your exhaust manifolds? Thanks, Matt

Not sure how long it will last but I wire brushed them up real good, cleaned with mineral spirits, and put a coat of VHT primer. Then a couple coats of the VHT exhaust paint. Says it's good from 1300 to 2000 degrees F. Hopefully it lasts a couple years at least.
