After getting the knock sensors in, I tried to make a resource for anyone who may have gone too fast and just threw everything together but didn’t pay attention to how they did it.  This video is just an overview of stuff and where it goes.  There is another video later in the series where I visit the concept of, “where stuff goes”, to finish off the engine build.

I learned a trick from someone along the way about using a (preferably new) toilet bowl brush and some carb cleaner to clean out the intake manifold while it’s still outside the truck.  I did do that and then used another smaller brush for the intake runners.  I will be installing a catch can later, so I wanted to base line the intake as clean as possible.

Later in the video, I get to the installation of the intake manifold.  It’s not hard, I chose do it when all the lines were off to the side thinking I would reduce the effort necessary to get it in.  It wasn’t hard at all.

Next on went the power steering / alternator bracket.  Take care to make sure all the hoses are where they belong so that it does not present a problem for you later.

So, check out the video, and be sure to check out my other videos, subscribe to my YouTube channel, and like and comment.   Thanks!
