So I've been doing work lately welded axle up made new linkage and took the motor and made it opposed stroker yet to fire up due to broken head bolts but it's a 42ci block with 40ci rods a 46ci heads and 46ci cam with mild port and polish and had a partially made header on parts engine I had that was suppose to be good to go but was rusty inside filled with water and cylinder walls gouged. But finished header and made muffler port and polished everything possible and did carb jetting and painted engine

So been doing some work stripped her down almost all the way for the third time pulled wiring harness gonna redo that so I can run my kill switch on twist throttle and have a push button ignition and delete sensors. And redid exhaust didn't like the sound as much from the can I made so took some pieces from old mower headers and cut and welded till it tucked behind floorboard under frame and ran two straight feet of 2.5 to a elbow and 3.5 inch tip hoping she will have a good bark now with motor done like it is and all and pulled steering box out to change gear on steering stem and need to do bushings anyone got any tips on this?
