Jenn and I started the engine reassembly tonight. We started by thoroughly cleaning the heads and deck and then torquing them down. After reinstalling the pushrods, and rocker arms, I installed the intake manifold gaskets with some gasket sealant to hold it in place while installing the intake manifold.
After applying some RTV to the china walls, I installed the intake manifold, throttle body, water neck and rocker arm covers. We should be able to fire up the engine this weekend.
