Polished the valve covers and bolted them on using stainless hardware and fresh gaskets with a coat of never-seize. This ought to give the valve cover gaskets a long life.

Gaped and installed new NGK spark plugs.

Assembled spark plug wires. I'm using NGK plug caps and some yellow spark plug wire I picked up at a flea market for next to nothing. I finish the wire to the coil once the engine is installed and I know the proper length.

Mounted the breather with new hoses and clamps. I'll probably need to take it off to install the engine into the frame.

Assembled front and rear brake plates, greasing pivot points and using stainless hardware.
