It's been a few days since I've updated my Shop log, and I'll be working backwards until caught up.

Blew the small (440) engine up at the SHRA Race in Denton. There will be a post with details on that. Anyway, the engine is out (I talked Dallas into doing it) and it will be disassembled tomorrow to see what happened. My guess is a rod bolt failure in number four. Water started to pour out when oil pan was removed. Not a good sign.

I've been spending a lot of time reorganizing from moving to a shop three times the size. Bought a couple 40' storage containers, built some shelving, bought a ton of various size plastic bins, and I'm slowing moving a truck load at a time of stuff from old shop - and organizing it in the new shop. The below photo is stuff unloaded that I'm sorting through and putting away. In addition to the stuff I'm bring over from the old shop, I have a 20' container that had car parts that I'm consolidating with stuff from old shop into bins, and onto shelves in one of the 40' containers.

There was this one huge bin that had every type of gasket and seal in. I bought some long 'under bed' bins and sorted them into Big Block, Small block, transmission, and rear end gaskets and seals.

Again, I'm working backwards with about a week's worth of photos on my photo, so about five of these posts are going to be backwards.
