I'm a die-hard M-series fan, but dayumn that is a sweet straight six. Once, I found a longblock 2J in the bowels of an incredibly sketchy parking garage. I've never been more tempted to "rescue" something, but I didn't. Is the 5M from the 84 still around, by any chance? :naughty:

Some small progress. I took the block to work to cleaned it and preped it for paint. Here is how it turned out.





Not to shabby, I wanted to paint it white but changed my mind.

burnt orange ish?? I dig it! white would be cool but would get really dirty and not look as neat anymore but oil leaks would be easy to spot :p
Yeah it's a krylon paint "Ford Red" it's cured really well I am pretty impressed with how it came out. I even painted some other parts with it and they look great.

I have gotten my hands on a engine stand just waiting to get the head piece for it. Then It's onto reassemble. Many pics to come.

The block has been on the stand. I have a few pictures of the head I have been working on. a mild port and polish. New valve stem seals and the valves will be lapped and maybe a 3 angle job. So far all the work has been done by me.









And A few of the block still have to get around to honing the cylinders.
