wire brushing, degreaser, painting, polishing, etc did everything myself so far.

well
-the old trans is off my engine
-the head is also off
-so is the oilpomp, clutch, engine mounts, startermotor and that plate between the engine and trans.

engine:
cylinder 1: fine
cylinder 2: bit of a score in the wall, my nail catches on it
cylinder 3: fine
cylinder 4: piston is a bit lighter of color(think the injector is probably f*cked), rest is fine

head:
fine, exept for 2 brokes studs for the exhaust, 1 of them is inside the cylinderhead.

clutch was on the edge of being worn, so I need a new one, this one was a sachs
