Dropped the engine off at the machine shop for a cleaning, and inspection. Interested to see what they will find. Sure is easier to wrangle the block with two people out the back of the XC70!

Little update.
I haven't heard back from the machine shop about the engine, but have been picking away at cleaning up the bellhousing, getting parts lined up for the starter rebuild, new clutch and pressure plate, I decided I should pull the SM318 and give it a quick once over... When I pulled the fill plug (I always do that first now ...) I found some gray paste. I then pulled the drain plug, and there were lots of chunks under all the gray paste. The oil is shimmering to say the least...

I also found the bellhousing has a bit of a storied past.

Anyhow, I think with the each of the new discoveries I encounter, it is making the decision to swap a sbc, and a Turbo 350 (or similar) into this much easier. Thinking of using a Ford 8.8 rear end. Maybe. Maybe not. I have a line on one built to spec for what I want for $4k, based off a Ford 9".

truckernix, looking at the image of the engine I do not think it has the short side cover.

Update from the Machine shop!

Block is free of cracks. Cylinders need to be bored out to .30 over to clean up the out of round, and some scoring. Deck needs to be cleaned up, 10 thou. Crank is bent, but can be fixed, out about 20 thou (i think). They are on the hunt for parts, will be going to insert bearings.

Not sure the state of the head. They hadn't quite finished with it when I was speaking with them.

The flywheel they thought would clean right up. They didn't mention it today either, which usually means it's fine.

I dropped the gearbox off at a transmission / driveshaft shop today. They did a few of them this summer, and think they can get all the pieces they need to bring it around.

I have started cleaning up the starter, it's in pretty good condition. Once I get all the oil/grease off it should work fine. The brushes are slightly worn. I may order a rebuild kit for it, because it's apart.

I also have order some of the body parts that I have been putting off. The support behind the windshield in particular, I am not looking forward to taking on. The entire upper pinch weld (where the window seal would go) is missing, and I am going to attempt to rebuild. Looking at getting an everlast dual voltage mig welder for the task.

I'll keep you all updated on here when I hear more. Most of the shops are running a few weeks behind. Seems like everyone has had extra time to work on their projects this summer...

Gearbox is rebuild able! The reverse gear has some chunks missing, and has been rubbing on the case. They happen to have a reverse gear, and everything else at the shop. Will only cost me about $1200 cdn pesos to have it repaired...

On the hunt for a newer 3spd, 4spd (Saginaw maybe), and s10 t5. As well as a solid axle about 60" wide (axle flange to axle flange). Geared in the 3.73, 3.55, 3.41 range. Specifically ford 8.8, 9 and chev 12 bolt. AMIGOS should have something suitable, they are looking. The rocket shop near melfort has a couple of gearboxes that would work with an open driveline as well (3spd out if an Iraqi taxi, t5 out of an s10, and a turbo 350 if I go v8).

Committed to the 216 today! Machine shop was able to source all the needed parts. So I plan to do a restoration. Nice when a plan starts to come together!
