I'm stuck deciding whether to paint the bellhousing or not, does anyone have any ideas? Thanks

Paint it. It's aluminum and will corrode quickly otherwise. Use some aluminum - silver colored paint and it will stay looking good now that you put the time into cleaning it.

Hey everyone,

Just got my motor back from the shop, rebuilt with flat top pistons, alloy heads/manifold etc, which I'm really happy with. I also ordered a new 10si internally regulated alternator which requires bracket modification due to the new intake manifold which I'm doing myself. :P

Starting to get in to electrical now as well. I couldn't find any info on how the blower motor gets grounded so I just added a ground wire to the firewall myself, I can't see how else it was done unless the original ducting was made of metal. (I am converting from an A/C setup and that was a mess so I'm not sure how that all worked btw)
